Wijnaldum explains why Liverpool may find Fulham harder than Bayern


Georginio Wijnaldum believes Liverpool will have to make sure they are switched on from the off as they return to domestic action after their midweek Champions League high in Germany.


The 3-1 win over Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena was rightly hailed as an impressive performance but with the quest to end a 29-year wait for the Premier League title still ongoing, there is no time to bask in the glow of making another European quarter-final, where they face Porto.


In fact, Wijnaldum believes Sunday’s opponents Fulham, second-bottom of the table, may present an even more difficult proposition than five-time European champions Bayern.


Jurgen Klopp’s side capitalised from their Bundesliga opponents, behind on away goals, having to chase a second with the score at 1-1 and leaving gaps to exploit.


The struggling Cottagers are unlikely to offer the same amount of space.


“They are struggling, fighting to survive and that is always difficult to play against, those teams.
