Fulham vs Liverpool Tips


The new season begins for newly-promoted Fulham as they host last season's runners-up Liverpool in a match that should be hugely entertaining. For Fulham, this is a huge chance to show how far they have come, while for the Reds, they will want to build on a fairly good pre-season as they hope to take all three points from their opening match.

  • Fulham were promoted from the Championship last season as the champions
  • Fulham won two of their pre-season games, losing one and drawing one 
  • Liverpool beat Premier League champions Manchester City 3-1 in the Community Shield at the end of July 
  • The Reds missed out on the Premier League title by a single point last year 

Head to Head


The last time the two sides were in the same league, Fulham almost managed to do the double over the Reds. A 1-0 win at Anfield in March 2021 followed a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage. Of course, this was a few years ago, with the Reds winning all six matches before this. 

Fulham Form 


Fulham battled to top-spot in the Championship last year as they reclaimed their place in the Premier League for the upcoming season. 27 wins in 46 games helped the side onto 90 points, meaning they claimed the title ahead of Bournemouth, who picked up 88 points. 

In pre-season, Fulham have beaten Nice and Estoril Praia, they have drawn with Villarreal and they have been hammered 5-1 by Benfica. While the results of pre-season do not matter as far as the league is concerned, they will be able to take some positives from their performances, while they know there is a lot to be learnt from their defeat to Benfica too. 

Liverpool Form 


The single point that Manchester City won the league by last year was a margin that would have been very difficult for Liverpool to stomach. The Reds had been superb last year, tasting defeat in only two of their 38 games. Ultimately, Liverpool would have been worthy winners in most other seasons, but they just came up against a Manchester City side that edged over the finish line slightly quicker. 

The Reds will target a game against Fulham as the perfect chance to start off with a win. The newly-promoted side will likely not be too expansive in their game as they hope to stay tight and avoid a big loss. With the Reds already impressing against City in the Community Shield on Saturday, many will predict a comfortable away win.

Verdict

Liverpool are the team we are looking to back in this one despite this being an away game. We also liked the look of Mohamed Salah in Liverpool's win over City, so we are backing him to hit the back of the net again.
