Why you should back Liverpool

The Reds have been excellent on the road of late, winning three straight and five of their last six matches. Liverpool have allowed a total of one goal in those five victories and have posted three consecutive clean sheets away from home. The club was triumphant in its lone road game in this competition as it edged Bournemouth 2-1 in the fourth round behind Darwin Nunez’s goal in the 70th minute.

The 24-year-old Nunez has been one of the top setup men in the EFL Cup as he shares the lead in the competition with three assists. Winger Cody Gakpo has recorded only three goals in 19 Premier League matches this season but is tied for first in the EFL Cup as he has converted in each of the Reds’ four contests. Midfielder Curtis Jones failed to score in the club’s first two games but registered a brace against West Ham in the quarterfinals and tallied in the 68th minute of the first leg of the semifinal tie to level the match before Gakpo netted the winner three minutes later. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Fulham

The Cottagers have played well at home of late, winning five of their last six matches at Craven Cottage across all competitions. They have outscored their opponents 16-5 in that span, recording five goals on two occasions while posting three clean sheets. Forward Raul Jimenez, who leads Fulham with five goals in Premier League action, has netted four over that six-game stretch.

Brazilian winger Willian has recorded three goals during Fulham’s current surge at home. The 35-year-old is tied for second on the team with four goals in the EPL and produced the lone score against Liverpool in the first leg of the EFL Cup semifinals. Forward Bobby Decordova-Reid, who also has four EPL goals this season, has notched a pair of assists in this competition and converted in the Cottagers’ 4-3 Premier League loss to the Reds in early December. See which team to pick here.
