Fans fuming as Liverpool to play newly-promoted team fourth year on the bounce

Football fans have been left fuming that Liverpool are facing a newly promoted side on the opening day for the fourth season in a row.

The Reds will take on Fulham at Craven Cottage on August 6 for the opening day of the season. However, football fans were quick to notice a strange trend with Liverpool's opening day clashes.

It will be the fourth time Liverpool have faced a newly promoted side in as many seasons when they kick-off at Craven Cottage. During the 20/21 season, Leeds United travelled up to Merseyside, while the Reds faced Norwich away from home last season and at home on the opening day of the 19/20 season.

One fan tweeted, with a thinking emoji: "Four years in a row Liverpool start against a promoted team."

"Liverpool always gets a newly promoted team on the opening day," a second fumed. While a third tweeted: "Once again Liverpool get a newly promoted team, it's as if the machine is being operated by a scouser – way too many times for this to be a coincidence."

And a West Ham fan pointed out: "Meanwhile West Ham have played Manchester City or Liverpool 3 times out of the last 5 opening days."
