GOAL Fulham 1-0 Liverpool (32 mins)
Wow! Aleksandar Mitrovic is at the back post to nod in Kenny Tete’s deep cross
Liverpool kick off their Premier League campaign with a trip to Fulham this lunchtime. Here’s how to watch the clash live online and on TV worldwide.
The Reds are back in competitive action after just over two months away, with a six-game pre-season schedule leading up to a trip to Craven Cottage.
Jurgen Klopp’s men were forced to accept second best again last season, while the Cottagers are aiming to avoid a swift demotion back down to the second tier.
Completing the FA Cup and EFL Cup double is nothing to be sniffed at, but for a good chunk of the 2021-22 season, Liverpool seemed capable of turning the unprecedented quadruple dream into a reality before Real Madrid and Manchester City did the business.
Failing to add another Champions League or Premier League trophy to their brimming Anfield cabinet did dampen the mood slightly, especially seeing as Reds legend Steven Gerrard threatened the shock of all final-day shocks with his Aston Villa side against Man City before Pep Guardiola’s side came storming back.
Liverpool have already kicked off their 2022-23 season with a much-deserved win over the reigning champions in the Community Shield and have also secured a number of victories off the field, winning the race to sign Darwin Nunez and finally convincing Mohamed Salah to put pen to paper on a new deal until 2025.
Red Bull Salzburg, Manchester United and Strasbourg all got one over Liverpool in pre-season, but Klopp was not averse to sending out teams made up of second-string and youth players over the summer, and their unbeaten Premier League run now stands at 19 games.
As previously hinted at, Fulham’s most recent Premier League win was a 1-0 success over Liverpool at Anfield in 2021, and they also held the Reds to a draw at Craven Cottage that same year, but Liverpool are going in search of their fifth opening-day win with at least three goals scored in succession this weekend.
Ibrahima Konate, Kostas Tsimikas and Curtis Jones were all ruled out by Klopp in his pre-game press conference, while Naby Keita’s illness has proven more difficult to overcome than initially thought.
Klopp has already confirmed that Alisson Becker will be fine to take his place in between the sticks, and another shootout between Roberto Firmino and Darwin Nunez for the striker’s spot will occur.
Fulham — Rodák; Tete, Adarabioyo, Ream(C), Robinson; Reed, João Palhinha; De Cordova-Reid, Andreas Pereira, Kebano; Mitrovic.
Liverpool — Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson(C), Fabinho, Thiago; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Díaz.
