  • Match report: Fulham 2-2 Liverpool

An uncharacteristically sluggish and error-ridden Liverpool had to come from behind twice to escape from Craven Cottage with a point.

Having provided the assist for Liverpool’s first, Mo Salah scored their second, poking into a gaping goal from six yards out after a mix-up in communication between Fulham’s centre-backs.

Both sides hit the woodwork during a game from which Liverpool escaped with a point despite playing quite badly. We’ll get to hear what Jurgen Klopp made of his side’s sloppiness in a few minutes.


Harvey Elliott and Darwin Nunez have been on the field for less than 10 minutes and both have already presented Fulham with excellent chances by giving the ball away. Jurgen Klopp will be seething.

Mo Salah combines with Trent ALexander-Arnold down the right before squaring the ball for Darwin Nunez. His effort to steer the ball goalwards is smothered by Rodak.

A minute or so previously, Nunez eschewed a good shooting opportunity, but passed instead, giving the ball away.

Tim Ream hacks another Darwin Nunez effort off the line – the Liverpool striker has menaced the Fulham defence since coming on and looks lethal.

Fulham clear the corner but the ball falls to Milner. He cross to the far post, where Mo Salah has a header palmed off the bar by Rodak. Offside.

Liverpool’s players were furious with that penalty award but it was fair enough. Mitrovic went one on one against Van Dijk, who stuck out a lazy leg and brought down the Serbian striker. It was a rare error from the Dutchman, who has been far from the only Liverpool player in making costly, or potentially costly, mistakes today.
