FOOTBALL fans on social media seem to be in agreement after Liverpool were handed what appears to be a favourable start to the 2022-23 season.

The Reds will travel to newly-promoted Fulham on August 7 to kick off their campaign.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are the first team in top-flight history to face a newly-promoted side in their first league game of the season in four consecutive campaigns.

Liverpool began the 2019-20 season with a clash against Norwich, then Leeds in 2020-21, Norwich again in 2021-22, and now Fulham in 2022-23.

And fans on social media have been quick to react to the Reds’ Premier League schedule, which was released this morning.

One wrote: “Quite laughable that Liverpool always seem to get a newly promoted team on the opening day.”

Another said: “Anyone else notice that Liverpool have a promoted team as their first fixture for like the 4th season running!!!”

While a third added: “Liverpool against a newly-promoted side imagine my shock.”

However, others pointed out that playing a newly-promoted team on the first day of the season is not necessarily an advantage.

As seen last year when Brentford shocked Arsenal on the opening day, newly-promoted sides handed a big tie to kick off their campaign are likely to play out of their skin in a bid to get a result.

The Londoners did win the Championship last term, but a fourth consecutive season opener against a newly-promoted side means Klopp and Co are well-positioned to start with a bang.

Although the recent history between the sides is actually in Fulham’s favour.

Liverpool picked up just one point against the Londoners when they were relegated in the 2020-21 campaign.

The two sides drew 1-1 at Craven Cottage before the Reds slumped to a shock 1-0 defeat at Anfield in March last year.

So maybe it’s not the ideal start to the new season that Klopp’s title-chasing side were hoping for.
