Fulham enjoyed a record-breaking return to the Championship last season, racking up an incredible 106 goals on their way to winning the league and making an instant return to the top flight. Marco Silva’s side scored five or more goals on no fewer than seven occasions, including three 7-0 wins.
A big part of that was Aleksandar Mitrovic, the Serbian striker scoring a record 43 times and feasting on Championship defences. Having returned to the Premier League, the first order of business will be to make sure it’s not a single-season sojourn in the top flight.
We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Fulham – from their next league game, to the latest football betting odds.
When is the next Fulham Premier League fixture?
Fulham start their Premier League season at home against Liverpool, with the game kicking off at 12:30 on Saturday. The West London side have good recent memories against Liverpool, having taken four points from during their last season in the Premier League.
It’s a tricky opener for Fulham, who have lost their opening league match in the last five seasons after being promoted to the top flight. The fans at Craven Cottage will be hoping that last season’s exciting form will roll on into this campaign.
What are the odds that Fulham win their next game?
Much of Fulham’s season will depend on the form of Aleksandar Mitrovic. Mitrovic averages a goal every 117 minutes in the Championship, but has found the going tougher in the Premier League with a goal every 286 minutes. He is the focal point of Fulham’s attack and 13/2 to get the opener on Saturday.
With both sides committed to attack, it could be an open an entertaining game. We have 9/1 on over 2 goals, over 3 cards and over 10 corners in this one.

What is the latest Fulham injury and transfer news?
Harry Wilson suffered an unfortunate injury in a behind-closed-doors friendly last week, depriving him of the opportunity to face his former club. Nathaniel Chalobah is also expected to miss out, while Joe Bryan has a hand injury.
Who are Fulham’s key players?
When assessing how Fulham’s season is likely to go, look no further than Aleksandar Mitrovic. If he can even get close to the form he showed in the Championship last season, expect Fulham to finish closer to the top half than the bottom the table. New signing Joao Palhinha should slot straight into the starting XI, with the experienced defensive midfielder having signed from Sporting in the summer.

What are the Fulham odds to be relegated from the Premier League?
As with any newly-promoted side, Fulham’s first challenge is to avoid relegation from the Premier League. Last season’s second-tier champions are 6/5 to be relegated at the end of this campaign. However, with a talented squad and the finishing abilities of Aleksandar Mitrovic, manager Marco Silva will fancy his side’s chances of staying up.
Who is the manager of Fulham?
Marco Silva was appointed Fulham boss in 2021 and enjoyed a fine first season in charge as his side won the league at a canter. The Portuguese boss has plenty of experience in English football, having previously taken charge of Hull, Watford and Everton before landing at Fulham.
Where is Fulham’s stadium?
Fulham play at London’s oldest football stadium, Craven Cottage. Resting on the banks of the River Thames, Fulham’s picturesque stadium has been the club’s home since 1896. The Riverside Stand has recently been revitalised, with its full opening expected in 2023.
