Fulham 2-2 Liverpool: Cracking game at Craven Cottages as Mohammed Salah saves Reds blushes in the Premier League encounter on Saturday early kick-off.

Jurgen Klopp’s men who pushed champions Manchester City in the title race last season, fell behind when Aleksandar Mitrovic got the better of Trent Alexander-Arnold to head Fulham ahead in the 32nd minute after meeting a superb cross by Kenny Tete.

Liverpool trailed at the break but sprung out of the traps in the second half, as club-record signing Darwin Nunez came off the bench to score his maiden Premier League goal with a clever flick past Marek Rodak to draw the Reds level in the 64th minute.

Fulham responded superbly with former Newcastle United striker Mitrovic regained the for Marco Silva’s side from the penalty spot just eight minutes later after the Serbian international was brought down by Virgil van Dijk.

Mohamed Salah equalised from close range after a pass by Nunez but Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson went close to winning it at the end when he hit the bar in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

The result is a huge disappointment for the Reds who host Crystal Palace next weekend at Afield, while Fulham travel to Molineux Stadium to battle Wolves.
