Liverpool Team News
Jurgen Klopp’s teams drew 2-2 with Fulham in the first match. The current runners-up were a little confused by the aggressiveness of their rivals, who were leading 1-0 and 2-1 thanks to the goals of Aleksandar Mitrovic, but the Reds managed to win one point. It’s certainly not the start everyone at Liverpool envisioned, but the season is long enough for early mistakes to be rectified.
Darwin Nunez scored in his second game for his new club and also scored on his Community Shield debut. The talented Uruguayan showed that he gets along well with Mohamed Salah and that this tandem will be a real nightmare for opponents in the future. He was benched again, but it won’t be a surprise if he starts on Monday.
Thiago Alcantara injured his thigh against Fulham and will be out for at least a month, with Naby Keita expected to fill in for him. Another absence from the home team is possible: Joel Matip has problems with his groin and is questionable for this match.
