In the last round of Premier League matches, former Liverpool attacker Ryan Babel came close to haunting his former club.
The Fulham man scored a late equaliser at Craven Cottage for the Whites, nearly derailing Liverpool’s title charge before James Milner won the match with a penalty.
This weekend, however, Babel has the chance to help Liverpool’s pursuit of the Premier League crown when Fulham faces Manchester City.
Ever since joining on a short-term permanent deal in January, Babel has impressed in flashes for the Whites and has adequately replaced Aboubakar Kamara in the Fulham frontline.
Babel has added top-flight experience to Fulham, but has struggled to find his goalscoring stride. His first Fulham goal came in a 3-1 defeat to West Ham United, with his well taken strike against Liverpool marking his second goal in his return to England.
When Fulham play host to Manchester City on Saturday morning, Babel will likely be in the starting lineup and striving to continue his recent successes in front of goal.
With Liverpool and City battling it out on the top of the table, Babel will be eager to do his former side a massive favour with a positive attacking impact against Liverpool’s main title rivals this weekend.
