Match Today: Liverpool vs Fulham 06-08-2022 English Premier League

Fulham would welcome last season's runners-up to Craven Cottage in their opening game of the season. It will be a baptism of fire for the Championship winners in their first match when they return to the Premier League. Both teams have made new signings during the off-season and all eyes will be on Fabio Carvalho after his move from Fulham to Liverpool. The hosts wasted no time in replacing him with Joao Balenha and Manchester United's old boy Andreas Pereira. The visitors also lost a key player in striker Sadio Mane but replaced him with Darwin Nunez. The latter scored in the Premier League 3-1 against Manchester City in the Community Shield.

Meanwhile, Liverpool begin their 20th league title campaign with a trip to newly promoted Fulham on Saturday as Jurgen Klopp was twice disappointed with Fulham when the two teams last met during the 2020/21 season, holding Liverpool with just one point in west London before suffering defeat at Anfield. However, Liverpool have not lost at Craven Cottage since the late winner Clint Dempsey fell to the Reds who were Andy Carroll and Jay Springs in 2011. Diogo Jota may have signed a new long-term deal with Liverpool, but it is unlikely to show up in the long run. The short while it is burdened with a complaint in the thigh. Ibrahima Konate also ruled out injury.

On the other hand, Marco Silva's huts returned to the first division the first time from asking about the last semester, which led to a decline in scoring records in the second division. Liverpool came within two results of a perfect four but ended the season in disappointment despite winning the domestic cup. Fulham's pre-season was much shorter than Liverpool's, playing just four games compared to the visitors' seven. The hosts were fantastic last season in the tournament especially in front of goal as they scored over 100 goals and they will be looking to continue that level in this match. Liverpool achieved a variety of results in pre-season mainly due to the fact that they played very weak teams in a few friendlies. They are sure to play a full-strength team in the opening match and we support them to win because they are so good in the team.
