Fulham midfielder John Collins is anxious that the Cottagers bounce back from the heavy defeat against Arsenal as they prepare for the visit of Liverpool on Saturday.

Collins was part of the side that lost 4-1 at Highbury last weekend, and is hoping there is no adverse reaction as Jean Tigana's squad chase a good Premiership finish.

The midfielder said: "It was a really disappointing result, we didn't play well and started the game poorly.

"I don't think we were compact enough and we left Arsenal too much space.

"If you leave a team like Arsenal a lot of space they'll kill you with their speed and quick thinking."

Liverpool, another team well in the hunt for the title, will provide Fulham with a tough match in West London, something Collins is well aware of.

"Liverpool are going for the title as well. We've done well at home this season, we've won our last few home games so we'll want to keep that going," he added.
