- Fulham bounced straight back to the Premier League in style following their relegation in 2020-21, accruing 90 points to win the Championship under Marco Silva, racking up 106 goals in the process, a whopping 32 more than their nearest opponents.
- Both full-back Joe Bryan and winger Harry Wilson are expected to be ruled out of this one through injury and they are joined on the sidelines by central midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah.
- For Liverpool this season the goal is simple, overhaul Man City and win back the Premier League, a goal perfectly achievable for a squad of such star power, led by one of best managers in world football, Jurgen Klopp.
- Sadio Mane has departed for German champions Bayern Munich, but the Reds have moved fast to replace him, signing Benfica forward Darwin Nunez for a club record fee and the Uruguayan is likely to start at Craven Cottage.

Although Fulham come into this on the back of that ‘promotion bounce’, Liverpool have made a habit of bursting the bubble of such teams over the past few years, beating the likes of Leeds and Norwich on the opening weekend following their respective Championship promotions. The same outcome is expected here with Liverpool still a force of nature going forward even without Mane, whilst their backline combines defensive solidarity with a potent threat going forward. Any outcome other than a comprehensive away win at Craven Cottage would be seen as arguably the biggest shock of the weekend.
TIP: LIVERPOOL TO WIN
