Fulham head into the international break on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Fulham head into the international break on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. 

 

The Whites were very resilient and were undone in the most unfortunate of ways as Aleksandar Mitrović’s header was cruelly ruled offside and within seconds Mohamed Salah opened the scoring for the Reds. 

 

Liverpool doubled their lead in the second-half as Xherdan Shaqiri fired in a good cross from Andrew Robertson to compound Fulham’s woes.

 

Slaviša Jokanović made three changes to the side that was defeated on Monday night at Huddersfield with Calum Chambers, Cyrus Christie and Alfie Mawson coming in for Luciano Vietto, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Jean Michaël Seri. 

 

Jurgen Klopp made four changes to his team after a 2-0 defeat in the Champions League away at Red Star Belgrade in the week, as Fabinho, Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez and Shaqiri replaced James Milner, Daniel Sturridge, Joel Matip and Adam Lallana. 

 

Liverpool broke down the right in the fourth minute and the ball eventually made its way to Sadio Mane in the Fulham box but he pushed his effort well wide of Sergio Rico’s goal. 

 

After some good pressure from Fulham, Liverpool attacked down the White’s left and with 12 minutes gone Shaqiri took the shot on but he was just wide of opening the scoring. 

 

With quarter of an hour on the clock, Rico stepped up to the plate to deny Salah from point blank range after some nice build-up play from the Reds on the edge of the Fulham box to send the Egyptian through. 

 

Five minutes later Trent Alexander-Arnold sent his header over the bar after Fabhino whipped in a hanging ball from the centre of the park to Fulham’s back post. 

 

It was Rico playing the hero again minutes later when Salah was charging through on goal for a second time but the Spaniard rushed out to block his effort. 

 

Fulham then had an opportunity to take the lead themselves in the 24thminute, when Mitrović flicked the ball on to Ryan Sessegnon, he was through on goal but his low drive was inches wide of giving the Whites the lead. 

 

Fulham began to grow into the game and when Tom Cairney laid the ball off to André Schürrle in the 29thminute the German forced a parried stop from Alisson and the Reds cleared as a goalmouth scramble was about to occur. 

 

The Whites were eventually undone in the cruellest of fashions, Mitrović turned in Cairney’s cross which was controversially ruled offside given the action replay. Liverpool then broke straight away and Salah poked it past Rico to give the Reds the lead in the 41st minute. 

 

Moments later Fulham had dusted themselves off and after some initial miscontrol, Cairney found Mitrović in the box but the striker’s shot was well saved by Alisson. 

 

The second-half began as electric as the first as Rico pulled off an impressive save when Mane’s shot was destined for the top right-hand corner of the Fulham goal. 

 

However, Shaqiri doubled the Reds lead when he turned in Robertson’s cross from the left at the back post in the 53rdminute of the game.

 

Chambers found himself in the referee’s book in the 59thminute after a lunge on Salah outside the Fulham box. 

 

Three minutes later Rico denied Robertson after a nice ball from Firmino played him in and then Jokanović immediately replaced Cairney with Seri. 

 

Liverpool then made a change as Jordan Henderson came on Georginio Wijnaldum in the 69thminute. 

 

After 77 minutes of struggling to contain the Serbain forward, the referee eventually decided to book Gomez for grappling with Mitrović, Fulham then swapped Schürrle for Vietto. 

 

Liverpool took off their goal scorer Shaqiri late on and brought on James Milner before Fulham swapped André-Frank Zambo Anguissa for Stefan Johansen in the 84thminute. 

 

Added time was awarded and Liverpool made their final change as Fabinho came off for Naby Keita and the final whistle was blown as the game ended 2-0.
