Fulham hosts Liverpool in this opening Premier League game of the season, and they would feel this is the toughest start they can get.
The Cottagers have just gained promotion back to the Premier League after a stunning campaign in England’s second tier.
They will want to do much better than they did when they were in the competition the last time.
However, a match against Liverpool will never be easy.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have started this season well after beating Manchester City 3-1 to win the Community Shield.
That is not a guarantee that they can win the Premier League, but it means they have entered competition mode already.
Fulham lost only one of their preseason game, and it was against Benfica, but the quality of opponents they faced is not close to Liverpool’s standard, and they must prepare differently and better for this game.
The Reds have won all but one of their last five head-to-head meetings and should get it right here again.
But Fulham scored so many goals in the Championship, and they could breach Liverpool’s defence at least once in this fixture.
