Fulham vs. Liverpool live updates and highlights from Premier League clash
1 Hr 30 Mins to KO: Will Fulham avoid relegation for the first time in four attempts in the Premier League since 2013/14? Will Aleksandar Mitrovic go closer to the three goals he scored in the top flight two seasons ago or the 43 he rattled in as a Championship player in 2020/21?
Whatever happens, the Cottagers will be helped by an experienced Premier League player they added to their ranks on Friday: uncompromising Brighton and Republic of Ireland centre-back Shane Duffy has joined the club on a season-long loan.

1 Hr 45 Mins to KO: Mohamed Salah became the first player to score in five consecutive opening-day games in the top flight on the first day of 2021/22.
The Egypt talisman is level with Leicester City's Jamie Vardy on seven goals in the first fixture of the season, and he can move level with Premier League legends Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney and Alan Shearer on the list by repeating the trick this time.
2 Hrs to KO: Hello and welcome to our coverage of the second act of the opening weekend of the 2022/23 Premier League season, which began on Friday with Arsenal's impressively resilient 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.
Last season, Liverpool began their campaign by winning 3-0 at a newly-promoted side who would be relegated with a whimper when they breezed past Norwich. Fulham will be hoping to avoid the immediate and longer-term fate suffered by the Canaries.
Victory for the hosts would be a huge shock, and you suspect they'd be content with a respectable performance and scoreline, if they are to lose to one of the title challengers on their return to the top flight.
