Fulham makes an instant return to the EPL following a dominant Championship title win
Season beginnings haven't been pleasant for Premier League newcomers, as yet another newly promoted side in Fulham will meet the domineering force from Merseyside, on Matchday 1.
Fulham has always struggled to maintain their EPL placement when competing in the topflight; Fulham manager Marco Silva will be aiming to prove his team isn't a disposable outfit and free points for the more stable Premier League clubs this term. However, a successful result against Liverpool will be the toughest of challenges for the West London outfit to trial their skills.
With that said, Fulham proved themselves as a worthy side, finishing top of last season's Championship table with 90 points and a staggering 106 goals – 43 of which stemmed from Aleksandar Mitrovic. Hoping to remain in the Premier League for longer than twelve months, the Cottagers have added the assistance of Joao Palhinha from Sporting Lisbon, as well as the arrival of:
Marco Silva will need to forget Fulham's 2020/21 results while competing in the Premier League, as they failed to collect a single win in their final 10 games of that season. Times have changed, but a positive can be taken from Fulham's previous Premier League win from the 2020/21 season that notably stemmed from a meeting with Liverpool.
EPL title hopes
Jurgen Klopp's elite squad was handed disappointment from all angles last term. Despite maintaining their reputation as one of the world's most talented teams, the EPL title and the Champions League trophy evaded the Reds by the smallest of margins.
Ending the 2021/22 season with an FA Cup and EFL Cup shouldn't be laughed at, but for the second half of last season, Liverpool looked capable of achieving the unthinkable when a quadruple set of silverware was in their grasp.
One point prevented Liverpool from removing Manchester City's title claim. Still, the Reds already look like the team to beat this term after defeating their Manchester rivals in the Community Shield.
In addition, Klopp managed to secure a new contract for his most prolific striker, Mohammad Salah, while adding Darwin Nunez to the already impressive attack force at Anfield.
Final thoughts| EPL betting odds and best bet
The EPL betting odds favor Liverpool, and yes, the value is almost non-existent if you're looking to play the moneyline.
The 2020/21 season saw Fulham defeat Liverpool 1-0 at Anfield, and they also held the Reds to a drawn fixture at Craven Cottage that same season. Still, Liverpool cannot falter if they're going to challenge for the EPL title this term, and we expect them to make a statement on Matchday 1.
Expecting a team to win both halves is a stretch, but when you boast one of the most impressive squads on the planet, I see value in this market at +160.
