Liverpool will be without key duo Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez for the trip to Fulham on Sunday. Reds captain Steven Gerrard is out as he has undergone shoulder surgery to end his ever-present record in the Premier League this term. Gerrard will be joined on the sidelines by Daniel Agger who has also been ruled out of the final two games of the campaign with a back problem. Martin Skrtel is set to replace Agger at the back alongside Jamie Carragher who will take the captain's armband from Gerrard. Jonjo Shelvey could get the nod to replace Gerrard in midfield unless Brendan Rodgers decides to shuffle his pack and play Fabio Borini and switch Jordan Henderson to central midfield. Striker Suarez is still missing as he serves the third game of his ten-match suspension. Martin Kelly and Joe Allen are out for the rest of the season, whilst Raheem Sterling also remains sidelined and is unlikely to be involved. Fulham boss Martin Jol is sweating over the fitness of Mladen Petric and Simon Davies before finalising his side. Petric (hip) and Davies (hamstring) both missed last weekend's home defeat to Reading and they face late fitness tests to see if they can return to the fold. Steve Sidwell is still suspended following his red card against Arsenal, while Mahamadou Diarra (knee), Ashkan Dejagah (ankle) remain on the sidelines through injury. Alexander Kacaniklic will be hoping to start against his former club after impressing off the bench against Reading.
