Liverpool will be keen to build on their impressive Community Shield triumph over Manchester City when they face newly-promoted Fulham in their Premier League opener. It will be the first match on an action-packed Saturday, as the Reds will be eager to start the new league campaign the same way they ended the last one. Following the turn of the year, Jurgen Klopp’s side have been highly impressive both domestically and in Europe. However, their good run of form was not enough for them to seal the Premier League title, as Manchester City held their nerve to get their hands on the trophy.

After missing out on the league crown by a narrow margin, Liverpool suffered another heartbreak in the Champions League final by losing to Real Madrid. Despite winning two domestic cups – Carabao Cup and FA Cup – their fans would have been left disappointed with Liverpool not winning either of the two big trophies. The Reds’ pre-season form has not been impressive either, however, their 3-1 victory over Man City last weekend will act as a good reminder for what they are truly capable of. Meanwhile, Fulham finished first in the Championship last season and carried that form into the pre-season, producing some good results. However, they have to be at the top of their game to get anything out of Liverpool at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Possible Lineups

Liverpool did their business early in the transfer window by making a few signings. Their two best bits of business was signing centre-forward Darwin Nunez for a mammoth transfer fee and making their star forward Mohamed Salah sign a contract extension. However, they will have to make do without Sadio Mane, who departed for Bayern Munich. Besides, Klopp will have a depleted squad at his disposal for the opener due to several injury concerns. Diogo Jota, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Caoimhin Kelleher will miss the clash. 

Furthermore, question marks hang over the participation of Naby Keita, Ibrahima Konate, Curtis Jones and Kostas Tsimikas. On a positive note, Alisson Becker could return to the Starting XI. On the other hand, Fulham also have a lot of injury doubts. Joe Bryan and Nathaniel Chalobah could join Harry Wilson on the sidelines. Wilson might unfortunately be out of action for a good while. This could allow new signings such as Joao Palhinha, Kevin Mbabu and Andreas Pereira among others to start on Saturday. Their in-form striker Aleksandar Mitrovic will undoubtedly lead the line for them.

Fulham possible line-up: Leno, Mbabu, Ream, Adarabioyo, Robinson, Palhinha, Reed, Reid, Kebano, Pereira, Mitrovic

Liverpool possible line-up: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Keita, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Diaz, Nunez
