Fulham vs Liverpool Prediction
Liverpool coming off a successful season. Winning both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup. But feeling like they are missing a big piece in their lineup now that Sadio Mane was shipped to Bayern Munich. $100 Million Uruguayan star Darwin Nunez is set to be the replacement. Darwin has been handed high expectations and certainly has started on the right foot.
Scoring five goals in his five preseason games, which included a four-goal game against Leipzig. With the midfield that Liverpool has to set up the speedy Uruguayan, and already the Egyptian king Salah, you can make sure to see many opportunities for both these players to score as much as possible.
Fulham is led by their goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic, who became the record-breaking goalscorer in the English Championship. With 43 goals to his name last season, there was no competition. Fulham losing Fábio Carvalho to Liverpool in the summer but adding some midfield talent João Palhinha and Andreas Pereira.
Liverpool last season conceded 65% of their goals away from home. I do think Fulham has enough confidence to score in the game, but do not see them getting any points to start their Premier League campaign. Liverpool last season scored first 65% of their games, 26 out of 38 games. Led 55% of their games at half-time, so Liverpool should get a nice early lead. With Darwin possibly not coming on until the second half, I like Salah to get the first goal of the first game +340. Liverpool will start the season with a convincing win by a score of 3-1.
Fulham vs Liverpool Picks
- Mohamed Salah to score first goal +340 (Bet $100 to win $340)
- Liverpool over 2.5 goals -102 (Bet $102 to win $100)
