Liverpool will be hoping for a repeat of the start of their impressive 2021/22 season when they kick off the new campaign at Fulham on August 6.

The Champions League finalists won 3-0 at Norwich on the first day of a season in which they would finish second, breezing past a team hoping to prove themselves in the Premier League and defy a reputation of being a 'yo-yo' club.

Fulham have those same ambitions, returning to the top flight after suffering relegation and responding by winning promotion, making a positive result against Liverpool a potentially significant statement of intent.

Fulham vs. Liverpool predicted lineups

Fulham manager Marco Silva will be without winger Harry Wilson, who spent the first seven years of his career at Liverpool before joining Fulham on loan in 2021 and on a permanent basis in July, as well as Nathaniel Chalobah.

Silva confirmed Wilson would be out for at least eight weeks following an injury in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Aston Villa.

Fulham predicted lineup (4-3-3): : Rodak (GK) — Tete, Tosin, Ream, Robinson — Palhinha, Reed, Andreas — De Cordova-Reid, Kebano, Mitrovic

Defender Ibrahima Konate limped off injured as Liverpool lost 3-0 at home to Strasbourg in their final friendly and Klopp has since confirmed he'll be out 'for a while.'

Naby Keita was ill and faces a late fitness test, while full-back Kostas Tsimikas and midfielders Diogo Jota and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (both suffering hamstring injuries) are out, as is goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher.

Liverpool predicted lineup (4-3-3): Alisson (GK) — Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson — Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago — Nunez, Salah, Diaz

Fulham vs. Liverpool betting odds

Bookmakers clearly expect Liverpool to repeat their comfortable win over a promoted side in their opener less than a year ago.

Fulham will likely attempt to avoid an open, free-scoring game and spring a surprise — and punters who back them to do so will be well-rewarded if their return to the Premier League results in an immediate upset.
