There has arguably never been a better time to go to the home of the five-time European champions, who have endured a miserable time in front of their own fans this season.

Fulham’s Belgian playmaker Mousa Dembele believes a famous scalp is there for the taking and well as an immediate chance to put things right on Merseyside.

“We can go level on points with Liverpool with a win, which is why I am so hungry to beat them,” he told the Cottagers’ official website,

“We want to prove ourselves when we go back up to Liverpool because the Everton game was not our best performance.

“We still aim to finish above Liverpool so now is our chance to show them that we can.

“If we want to do that, we have to win this game and give ourselves the best chance of catching them in the league.”

Liverpool could also rest several players tomorrow ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea.

But Dembele was not interested in playing a weakened side, insisting Fulham were good enough to shock their top stars.

“I want to play against the best Liverpool team, but if they don’t play the best Liverpool team, we will still do our best to beat them as well,” he said.

“For me, I hope they play with their best players possible so we can show we can beat them.”

Dembele was also itching for the chance to banish the memories of Saturday’s defeat, insisting he was more than happy to be playing again four days later.

“It’s not disappointing that we have another game so quickly after the Everton match,” Dembele said. “I’m happy to have the chance to play and forget about the Everton game and we can have a good feeling about the Liverpool game if we win this game, or play very well.”
