Strange how certain stadiums can play a recurring role in shaping the future of a team.  Liverpool supporters, for example, know very well how Rome's Stadio Olimpico can have a positive effect on European aspirations.  Domestically, the last two times the Reds have had a genuine crack at winning the title, one venue in particular has assumed prominence.  And on both occasions, Liverpool have left it very, very late to take advantage.  Jurgen Klopp takes his team to Fulham on Sunday afternoon aiming for the victory that would take them back to the top of the table and crank the pressure up on champions Manchester City.  Liverpool's championship challenge of 2014 was arguably fostered by the momentum of a dramatic February evening at Craven Cottage.  The Reds went into the game on the back of the memorable 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal that rekindled hopes of the title after a difficult January.

And it took an injury-time foul inside the area on Daniel Sturridge, and nerves of steel from Steven Gerrard to convert the subsequent penalty, for Brendan Rodgers' side to claim a remarkable victory.  Liverpool may have ultimately failed in the closing stages of the season after 11 successive wins, but the Fulham triumph - and the manner of it - gave them belief it could be possible.  It was the same five years earlier when, this time under Rafael Benitez, the Reds travelled to the Cottagers.  Curiously, as with Sunday, Liverpool were a point behind the leaders with eight games remaining, albeit having played a game more.  They hit the woodwork four times and appeared destined for an evening of frustration until Yossi Benayoun struck in injury time for a famous win.    Again, it wasn't quite enough as Manchester United made the most of their games in hand to claim the championship.  So to Liverpool's latest trip by the Thames.  Fulham's form has, quite frankly, been awful. The Londoners have lost nine of their last 10 games - including the last six - and have shipped 25 goals in that time.
