Good afternoon from Fulham
Welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of the Premier League clash between Fulham and Liverpool at Craven Cottage.
The Cottagers return to the Premier League after winning last season’s Championship with former Hull, Watford and Everton manager Marco Silva at the helm.
Silva will be without Harry Wilson and Nathaniel Chalobah, who are sidelined with a knee injury and knock respectively.
The Portuguese tactician will also have to make a late assessment regarding Joe Bryan, who missed Fulham’s final pre-season friendly against Villarreal with a hand injury.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, on the other hand, is expected to welcome Alisson back to his starting line-up following an abdominal injury that sidelined him from last weekend’s Community Shield triumph against Manchester City.
Naby Keita faces a late assessment following a recent illness but could still be part of Klopp’s squad in London.
However, Ibrahima Konate (knee), Curtis Jones (calf), Kostas Tsimikas (knee), Diogo Jota (thigh), Caoimhin Kelleher (groin) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring) are all ruled out for today’s Premier League clash.
Nevertheless, James Milner could be set to make history for the Reds as he is in line for his 200th Prem appearance for the club.
Thiago Alcantara, on the other hand is only one game away from registering his 50th appearance for the Merseysiders
