By on August 6, 2022 - 291 views

Liverpool kick off their 2022-23 Premier League campaign with a trip to Fulham on Saturday lunchtime.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are coming off the back of victory in the Community Shield over Manchester City last weekend; the team they’re looking to wrestle the Premier League title off this season.

Fulham were convincing in winning the EFL Championship last season but Marco Silva’s side have been underwhelming in the transfer window so far. In fact, they lost Fabio Carvalho to Liverpool.

The two lineups for Fulham vs Liverpool are confirmed as:

Fulham

Marek Rodak; Kenny Tete, Tosin Adarabioyo, Tim Ream, Antonee Robinson; Joao Palhinha, Harrison Reed, Andreas Pereira, Neeskens Kebano; Aleksandar Mitrovic, Bobby de Cordova-Reed

Substitutes: Bernd Leno, Shane Duffy, Kevin Mbabu, Tyrese Francois, Tom Cairney, Luke Harris, Manor Solomon, Jay Stansfield, Rodrigo Muniz

New signings Joao Palhinha and Andreas Pereira go straight into the starting lineup, whilst Bernd Leno and Kevin Mbabu are among the substitutes.

The Cottagers appear to be playing a 4-4-2 with both Aleksandar Mitrovic and Bobby de Cordova-Reed both named in the starting lineup.

Liverpool

Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Luis Diaz

Substitutes: Adrian, Joe Gomez, James Milner, Harvey Elliott, Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho, Stefan Bajcetic, Sepp van den Berg, Luke Chambers

Liverpool’s attacking trio should fancy their chances of putting a few past this Fulham defence, which includes slow centre-back Tim Ream, who has struggled in the Premier League previously.

Big summer signing Darwin Nunez is again among the substitutes, as are former Fulham duo Carvalho and Harvey Elliott.
