Liverpool began their 2022/23 Premier League season with high hopes, but their lofty expectations took a little stutter in their opening game of the campaign against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Overall, Klopp knows his side can be better and the underlying statistics prove that.

Last season, Liverpool won their opening game of the season, but their Premier League rivals slumped to a 1-0 defeat against Tottenham in a game that was equally as tough and hostile as the one Liverpool faced this time around.

Jürgen Klopp's side looked inferior for the vast majority of the game against a feisty Fulham side who worked and pressed as industriously as any Liverpool side under Klopp.

Harvey Elliott also produced an impressive cameo, and Liverpool created plenty of chances after he and Núñez were introduced on the pitch.

Klopp will hope this was just a mere stutter, and as his rival Pep Guardiola knows from last season, one result does not doom an entire campaign.
