KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Liverpool face Fulham in the opening weekend of the Premier League.
  • The Reds brought in Darwin Nunez from Benfica for a club record fee.
  • Fulham were promoted this season from the Championship.
After more than two months out of action, the Premier League will return to action this weekend. One of the blockbuster clashes for the opening weekend is definitely going to be when newly promoted side Fulham take on heavyweights Liverpool on Saturday.
Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp have been a force to reckon with in recent years. Under the German, Liverpool have won the Premier League in the 2019/20 season and have consistently remained in the top sides of Europe. The Reds have finished as UEFA Champions League winners in 2019, and have reached the final thrice in the last five years. They already have some of the best players in the world in Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago Alcantara and Mohamed Salah.
Although they lost Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich in the summer, they have the likes of Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota to fill in that place. In fact, they went out in the summer to increase their attacking depth in the form of Darwin Nunez for a club record fee from Benfica. They also got in Fabio Carvalho from Fulham and Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen. With a strong enough squad, Liverpool will be looking to start off with a comfortable win over Fulham.

Fulham in fact have just been promoted to the Premier League, having won the Championship last season in a dominating fashion with a massive 90 points and a record goal difference of 63. In fact, Fulham too have had a decent enough transfer window. They brought in Joao Palhinha from Sporting Lisbon as their primary defensive midfielder. They also roped in midfielder Andreas Pereira from Manchester United and left-back Kevin Mbabu from Vfl Wolfsburg. However, their statement signing so far has been the acquisition of goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Arsenal.

Although they will look to survive in the Premier League this season, they have very little chance of winning against a Liverpool team that has their eyes set on the title.
