Fulham vs Liverpool (EPL 2022/23)

Fulham have a tough welcome back to the Premier League when they host Liverpool on the opening weekend.

The Cottagers won the Championship at a canter last season, but Jurgen Klopp’s side will represent a different challenge entirely.

After five years of terrorising Premier League defences, Liverpool’s formidable front three will have a new look in 2022 – Sadio Mané’s out and Darwin Núñez is in.

The Uruguayan striker, signed from Benfica for an initial £64m, scored Liverpool’s third in last weekend’s Community Shield against Manchester City, and with Diogo Jota, Luis Díaz and Mo Salah also at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal, the Reds’ attack looks as potent as ever. Clean sheets against them are sure to be collectors’ items.

Last time Fulham were in the Premier League they splashed out £100m and went straight back down, but the west London club has been relatively restrained in the transfer market so far. Andreas Pereira has arrived from Manchester United, while defensive midfielder João Palhinha looks like a shrewd acquisition from Sporting Lisbon. Can they hit the ground running at a revamped Craven Cottage.
