The Reds finished last season strong on their travels picking up 16 points from their last six Premier League matches on the road.

Therefore, 101 Great Goals’ prediction for this match is Fulham 0-3 Liverpool and is available at odds of 17/2.

Alternatively, you can bet on any Fulham win at 150/1 against The Reds at home on Saturday. At these odds, a £1 bet would return £151. Or, back any away win for Liverpool at 20/1 here at the Craven Cottage. At these odds, a £1 bet would return £21. See our “Special Offer” section at the start of this preview for these bets. You can also find odds of 4/1 for any draw between Fulham and Liverpool on Saturday. At these odds, a £10 bet would return £50.

Mohamed Salah is our tip for the first goalscorer in Saturday’s match. Mo scored on his last visit to Craven Cottage back in 2021. The Liverpool right winger scored 23 goals (or 0.75 per 90) in the England Premier League last season with an expected goals of 24.4 and is 3/1 to be the first name on the score sheet in this match. Or 8/11 to score at any time during Saturday’s game.

Match preview

The Whites welcome Liverpool to Craven Cottage in London on Saturday for this Premier League match.

Fulham returns to the Premier League as the 2021/22 Champions of the Championship. They achieved promotion to the English top-flight for the first time of asking, following their relegation in 2021. This will be their fifth consecutive season starting in a new division having yoyo’d between the top two tiers of the English footballing pyramid. Their target for this season will simply be to put down some roots in the Premier League to build on, much as Brentford did last season.

They have been busy over the summer recruiting to achieve these goals with João Palhinha as the big name signing for them this summer. The 26-year-old defensive midfielder arrives from Sporting CP for £18.00m.

Bernd Leno, a 30-year-old goalkeeper from Arsenal, could be a bargain signing for them at just £3.24m. Fulham are likely to be one of the lowest goalscorers in the league this season and therefore a good keeper is crucial to maximising your returns from the goals you do score.

Andreas Pereira, a 26-year-old attacking midfielder, also arrives from Manchester United for £8.55m. While Kevin Mbabu, a 27-year-old right-back, will be known to Bundesliga fans and arrives from VfL Wolfsburg for £4.95m. Manor Solomon will be their surprise package. The 23-year-old left winger has a huge reputation in Ukraine after an impressive last two years at Shakhtar and arrives on a season-long loan.

Fulham have had a mixed bag of results in pre-season. Impressive wins over Nice (2-0) and Estoril Praia (1-3) are offset against a 5-1 pasting at the hands of Benfica. They finished their warm-up matches with a 1-1 draw against Villarreal here last Sunday.

Harry Wilson is a doubt for the Cottagers due to a knee injury. It will be a huge disappointment for the boyhood Red who came through the Liverpool academy before transferring to Fulham for £12.6m back in July 2021; the biggest deal between the two clubs to date.

Joe Bryan (metacarpal fracture) and Nathaniel Chalobah (knock) are also unlikely to be involved for Fulham here.

The Reds come into this match on a run of 19 league games undefeated carried over from the 2021/22 season. Last season’s Premier League runners-up finished the season just one point behind eventual Champions Manchester City. They weren’t left empty-handed though as Jurgen Klopp secured a domestic cup double beating Chelsea in both finals to lift both the League Cup and FA Cup for the first time in his managerial career.

This qualified his side for the 2022 Community Shield – England’s answer to a domestic Super Cup – which he also won for the first time with a 3-1 win over Manchester City last Saturday.

Liverpool have also been busy in the transfer market over the summer. Darwin Núñez is the big name signing for them this summer. The 23-year-old centre-forward arrives from SL Benfica for £67.50m which could rise to a club-record £85m should certain targets be achieved. Darwin became a target of ridicule online after missing some big chances in training and early pre-season friendlies. However, after sticking four goals past Leipzig and an impressive 30-minute cameo against Manchester City winning a penalty for the second and then heading home his team’s third goal, the “Uruguayan Andy Carroll” jibes seem to have been silenced already by the player who is giving Liverpool fans early Fernando Torres vibes.

They have also signed Fábio Carvalho, a 19-year-old attacking midfielder, from Fulham for around £5m as well as Calvin Ramsay, an 18-year-old right-back, from Aberdeen for £4.4m. Both Carvalho and Harvey Elliott are in line to make an appearance against their former club here, albeit as substitutes with neither expected to begin the season in the starting XI.

Curtis Jones (foot/ankle), Ibrahima Konate (knee), Caoimhin Kelleher (hip/groin), Kostas Tsimikas (knock), Naby Keita (illness), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring) and Diogo Jota (hamstring) are expected to miss Liverpool’s Premier League curtain raiser due to injury.

Alisson is also a doubt due to an injury and missed Liverpool’s win in the Community Shield last weekend. However, Jurgen Klopp’s comments in the pre-match press conference for that match suggest he expects Liverpool’s #1 to be ready for the trip to Fulham.
