Liverpool will travel to Craven Cottage for the opening day of the Premier League season. The Reds missed out on the Premier League title by a mere one point last term as Man City claimed a second straight championship.
Fulham vs Liverpool Bet Builder Tips
Liverpool have already lifted the Community Shield, defeating Manchester City 3-1 a week ago. The Reds just missed out on the quadruple last term. Jurgen Klopp’s side has the chance to win four trophies once more.
Fulham can play spoilers on the first day of the season. The Cottagers are newly promoted after winning the Championship last season. Although Fulham’s squad looks like Championship-quality, manager Marco Silva will fancy an opening day win.
Man City face West Ham on opening day in a difficult match. Liverpool could take an early advantage in the title race with a win at Fulham and Man City dropping points. Bookies have Fulham at odds of 17/2 to win at full-time. Liverpool are at the best betting odds of 3/10 to pick up a win. The last time these teams met, Fulham shocked Liverpool in 2020-21 with a 1-0 win at Anfield.
Fulham vs Liverpool Full-time Result
Fulham picked up a draw and win against Liverpool in 2020-21 in the Premier League. Remember that Liverpool were ravaged by injuries that season. The newly-promoted side will be energised at home on opening day. However, Liverpool looked brilliant in the Community Shield and won’t be beaten by Fulham on opening day. Liverpool should have no issue picking up a win and the scoreline could get ugly.
Fulham vs Liverpool Half Time Result
Liverpool led the Community Shield 1-0 at halftime against Man City. The Reds dominated much of the Community Shield and the same should occur on Saturday at Craven Cottage. Fulham should come out energised and full of life, but Liverpool should take charge after 10 minutes. Last season, the away team won the first half in 27% of Premier League matches. Liverpool posted an away record of 14W-4D-2L last season. The Reds should be winning at halftime.
Fulham vs Liverpool Halftime / Full-time result
Forget Liverpool picking up just one of six points in 2020-21 when these teams last met. The Reds had multiple injury problems for both games. Even with Fulham playing at home, the Reds should pick up a win at halftime and full-time. The Reds were winning at halftime/full-time against Man City, and should do it once more versus Fulham.
Fulham vs Liverpool Double Chance
If you are looking for some insurance on your bet builder, then a double chance Liverpool win or draw is a good shout. The Reds’ last trip to Craven Cottage finished 1-1. Liverpool are massive favourites to win, but Fulham are playing at home.
Fulham vs Liverpool Over/Under
Liverpool could run riot against Fulham. Why? Tim Ream is 34-years-old and while he helped Fulham to the Championship title last season, the defender and company should struggle once more in the Premier League. Thirty-eight of Liverpool’s 64 matches in all competitions last season finished with over 2.5 goals. My betting tips prediction is for over 2.5 goals between Liverpool and Fulham.
Fulham vs Liverpool First Goal Scorer
Mohamed Salah got his new contract and looked brilliant against Manchester City. He set up Trent Alexander-Arnold's opener and then scored a penalty. Salah won the Golden Boot last season with 23 goals scored.
Fulham vs Liverpool Anytime Goal Scorer
Darwin Nunez arrived as from Benfica as Liverpool’s record signing. He has looked like the real deal since joining the club. Nunez won a penalty against Man City then scored a brilliant headed goal to seal the 3-1 win. Nunez gives Liverpool something they haven’t had in years, a No. 9. Nunez could get on the scoresheet anytime.
Fulham vs Liverpool Last Goal Scorer
Liverpool could run riot with a win as the defence shuts out Fulham. Roberto Firmino got five goals in the Premier League last term. Firmino is in his final contract year and is fighting for a new deal. The Brazilian is the heart and soul of the team. He has played well in preseason and could be the game’s last goal scorer.
Fulham vs Liverpool To Be Carded
Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic led the Championship in goal scoring with 43 goals last term. It always seems he struggles to replicate that form in the Premier League. Mitrovic also picked up 10 yellow cards to lead Fulham last season. My betting tips prediction is for Mitrovic’s frustrations to boil over and him to receive a yellow card.
Fulham vs Liverpool Winning Margin
Liverpool are going to put Fulham down and potentially could win this match 3-0. Only 13 matches in the Premier League last term finished with the visitors winning 3-0.
Fulham vs Liverpool Total Goals - Odd/Even
A Liverpool 3-0 win against Fulham would see an odd number of total goals.
Fulham vs Liverpool Half with most goals
The second half could see Liverpool jump to a 3-0 win. The first half could be close and cagey with a fired-up Fulham team keeping the game close. My betting tips prediction is for the second half to have the majority of goals.
Fulham vs Liverpool BTTS
Saturday’s game should finish with NO BTTS. Forget all the goals Fulham scored in the Championship because they are taking on one of the world’s best teams. Fifty-percent of matches in the Premier League last term finished with NO BTTS. Liverpool kept 32 clean sheets in 64 matches in all competitions last term.
Fulham vs Liverpool BTTS 1st half
Liverpool were defensively brilliant last season and should remain just as difficult to defeat this season. Adrian may start in goal rather than Alisson due to injury. Even then, Liverpool should keep Fulham from scoring. NO BTTS in the first half.
Fulham vs Liverpool BTTS second half
Like in the first half, Liverpool’s defence should keep Fulham out of goal. The second half should also end NO BTTS.
Liverpool should pick up a great opening day win as Fulham are swatted to the side by a much stronger team.
