The Coutures are back in the big time after securing promotion from the championship when they first asked, but the week before the Reds tour is as tough as the welcoming parties come.
A single point dethroned Liverpool from Manchester City in last season’s title race, and Klopp’s side will be out to impress against one of the early favorites at the end of the campaign.
But after Mario Lemina’s 1–0 decider at Anfield in March 2021, Fulham emerged victorious in their last meeting with Merseysiders, shortly before they left Division One.
Liverpool have not lost a home game at home since that result at the end of a disappointing time in their recent rich history. Although Silva will be trying to change a lot compared to Fulham’s last attempt against the Reds, his most recent record is something he hopes will stand firm.
Questions are being raised whether fans will see a $75 million arrival from Liverpool’s Benfica, Darwin Nunez, from the start after impressing in the pre-season:
Sadio Mane has left for the Bavarian pastures with Bayern Munich, but Klopp is currently unable to call the injured Diogo Jota. This leaves Nez in a fight against Roberto Firmino, who leads the attacking trident, with the winner being flanked by Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz.
Fulham is under no such confusion as to who will lead their line, with Alexander Mitrovic building on the 43 goals he scored in 44 championship outings last season.
The Serb never managed to set up the Premier League in his 104 outings among England’s top flight, with 24 goals to his credit. Mitrovic is still only 27 years old and coming into his prime, however, summer signings from Manchester United and Sporting C in midfield—like Andreas Pereira and Joo Palinha respectively—promise to improve his supply.
