Fulham vs. Liverpool live score, updates, highlights from Premier League clash at Craven Cottage


0

The opening weekend of the 2022/23 Premier League sees Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool head to newly promoted Fulham on August 6.

The Cottagers ensured an immediate return to the top-flight, following their relegation in 2021, with Klopp’s Liverpool eyeing another title race in the coming months.

Klopp and Marco Silva will have wildly different objectives this season, with the latter set for a potential relegation battle, but this tie will be a real test of Fulham’s Premier League credentials.

Liverpool head into the game on the back of their 3-1 win over Manchester City in the Community Shield with Fulham winning just two of their four preseason games.

The Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates and commentary from Craven Cottage below.

Fulham vs. Liverpool live updates and highlights from Premier League clash

1 Hr 45 Mins to KO: Mohamed Salah became the first player to score in five consecutive opening-day games in the top flight on the first day of 2021/22.

The Egypt talisman is level with Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy on seven goals in the first fixture of the season, and he can move level with Premier League legends Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney and Alan Shearer on the list by repeating the trick this time.

2 Hrs to KO: Hello and welcome to our coverage of the second act of the opening weekend of the 2022/23 Premier League season, which began on Friday with Arsenal’s impressively resilient 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.

Last season, Liverpool began their campaign by winning 3-0 at a newly-promoted side who would be relegated with a whimper when they breezed past Norwich. Fulham will be hoping to avoid the immediate and longer-term fate suffered by the Canaries.

Victory for the hosts would be a huge shock, and you suspect they’d be content with a respectable performance and scoreline, if they are to lose to one of the title challengers on their return to the top flight.

Fulham vs. Liverpool predicted lineups

Silva is not expected to throw new signing Bernd Leno into his starting XI, but fellow summer signings Joao Palhinha, Andreas Pereira and Kevin Mbabu should start alongside hotshot Aleksandar Mitrovic, but former Reds winger Harry Wilson is sidelined. Shane Duffy also signed on Friday, August 5 but isn’t expected to start.

Fulham projected starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Rodak (GK) — Robinson, Ream, Adarabioyo, Mbabu — Kebano, Palhinha — Pereira, Reed, Decordova-Reid — Mitrovic.

Fulham projected subs (9): Leno (GK), Tete, Cairney, Knockaert, Onomah, Francois, Cavaleiro, Muniz, Solomon.

Klopp has confirmed first choice keeper Alisson will be fit to start at Fulham but Diogo Jota, Kostas Tsimikas, Caoimhin Kelleher, Alex Oxalde-Chamberlain and Ibrahima Konate miss out through injury.

Liverpool projected starting lineup (4-3-3): Alisson (GK) — Robertson, van Dijk, Matip, Alexander-Arnold — Fabinho, Thiago, Henderson — Nunez, Salah, Diaz.

Liverpool projected subs (9): Adrian (GK), Gomez, Philips, Milner, Keita, Jones, Elliott, Carvalho, Firmino.
