Mohamed Salah could hit 25 goals for the season with one against Fulham this afternoon, as Liverpool look to restore their dominant record against London clubs.
Liverpool have won seven of nine league games against London opposition this season – the exceptions being the 1-1 draw at Fulham last December and the midweek defeat to Chelsea.
Salah needs one goal to register 25 goals for a third Liverpool season out of four.
A quiet year

However, only once this season have they conceded more than twice away from home – in their opening away game at Leeds, going down 4-3 – and have conceded only five goals in the last seven league fixtures on the road.
Home and away, Fulham they have conceded two goals in the last six matches, with one of those being an own goal.
After shipping 10 goals in their opening three games of this Premier League campaign, Scott Parker’s men have conceded just 23 in the last 24 games.

Parker vs. Liverpool
Parker as a player and manager has won 10 of 19 meetings with the Reds, drawing three and losing six.
Kevin Friend takes charge of a Liverpool game for the fifth time this season – the Reds have won one of the previous four.
