Fulham manager Martin Jol believes tonight's opponents Liverpool may be benefiting from a season without European football.

The Cottagers head into Monday evening's clash at Craven Cottage 13 points behind the Merseysiders, lying 15th in the Barclays Premier League table. Fulham's Europa League exertions have been blamed for their indifferent domestic form and many suggest the competition is merely a hindrance.

Asked whether Liverpool have benefited from not being in Europe this season, Jol said: "That's what they say in England. They are quite clear about it, especially the big clubs and Liverpool are a big club."
