Liverpool have been given an extended break as their Premier League game against Fulham at Anfield from Saturday has been postponed.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are currently six points behind number four Tottenham Hotspur, after losing 1-0 in Bournemouth last weekend.
And that gap could be stretched to nine points by the time they return to action on Saturday 1 April with a trip to title contenders Manchester City.

The Spurs do play on Saturday when they travel to Southampton, which is threatened by relegation. Liverpool would play host to Fulham, who earned a 2-2 draw when the sides met on the opening day of the campaign in August.
But the game was postponed – and has yet to be rescheduled – after the Cottagers qualified for the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
Fulham won 2-0 at home against Premier League rivals Leeds United last month and provided a new confrontation with all the top players away to Manchester on Sunday (4.30 pm). The winners will progress to the semi-finals at Wembley.
After this weekend, teams in the Premier League have a two-week break due to the last international break of the season.
