Fulham hold Liverpool to a frustrating draw at the Cottage


Premier League new boys, Fulham gave Liverpool a tough start to the season after a frustrating draw at the Craven Cottage stadium.

The London club, all thanks to the heroics of Alexander Mitrovic who seemed unplayable from the start put Fulham ahead twice while Liverpool had to come from behind twice to salvage the draw.

Last season’s Premier League runners-up needed a debut goal from substitute Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah’s 80th-minute strike to twice come from behind and cancel out Aleksandar Mitrovic’s brace at Craven Cottage.

Although Liverpool salvaged a draw and had chances to win the game, they were some way below the impressive form which proved enough to beat champions Manchester City 3-1 in the Community Shield.

Mohammed Sallah now has Most Premier League goals for Liverpool 119 goals just behind Steven Gerrard 120 goals and also scored on the opening games in every season he has been at the club.

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp was frustrated by his side’s performance.

When asked how frustrated he is by the disparity in performance, Klopp said: “You want to know on a scale of one to 10? 12. Very, very because the performance was a defeat. That’s why we have to figure it out.

“The results are very important for us, obviously. I’d love to get three points but I would have loved much more to play really good to be honest. We didn’t do that.

“It is my responsibility to find out why we played last Saturday a surprisingly good game for the moment we were in in pre-season and seven days later we look like we are completely upside down. That doesn’t make sense. I speak to you now but I’m actually only thinking about that.”
