Kick-off : 12:30 PM (Local)
Venue : Craven Cottage, London
Liverpool one of the best clubs of the last season will eye more success this season as winning the Premier League is a top priority. They will look to play their brand of football.
The Reds had a mixed pre-season coming into the new season with wins as well as losses. They had success in the Community Shield over rivals Man City and it must make them in the right mood ahead of important Premier League clashes.
Boss Jurgen Klopp will deploy the used 4-3-3 formation with emphasis on attack and a solid defence.
On the other hand, Fulham were champions of England’s second division last term and will hope for some great fortunes up ahead in the top tier.
The Cottagers had a fine pre-season with important wins under their belt as they take on top quality opposition in Liverpool. Their next game is up against Wolves on the 13th.
Manager Marco Silva will likely use his 4-2-3-1 system on Saturday and try to defend in front of the home crowd.
