Fulham midfielder Lewis Holtby is hoping for a big result against Liverpool.

It will be a special game for Holtby, given his dad is a huge Everton fan.

Not that he has given it much thought after stepping into a survival battle from Tottenham.

"I am thinking about Fulham - I just want to stay up," said Holtby. "I am definitely looking forward to Wednesday, everyone is.

"We are going to need the same focus because a team like Liverpool have the confidence to destroy you, as we saw against Arsenal.

"We did our jobs against Manchester United though, and we have the confidence to survive against Liverpool too."
