Live analysis of Fulham vs Liverpool! – By Joe Prince-Wright at Craven Cottage

FULL TIME: Fulham-Liverpool 2-2. They can! What a great point that is for Fulham and you know what, they deserved it. What an exciting start to a busy Saturday in the Premier League.

A few minutes to go here. Can Fulham hold on?

GOLLLLL! Mohamed Salah equalizes for Liverpool. Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross missed by Tim Ream and the ball rebounded to Salah, who played at home. What game!

Fabio Carvalho, the teenage sensation who joined Liverpool from Fulham this summer, tops the volleying effort. Cue relief among the local fans.

GOLLLLL! Fulham win 2-1. Mitrovic scores the penalty kick after Virgil van Dijk committed a clear foul on him. Incredible scenes here at Craven Cottage. The Fulham fans are in the land of dreams.

PENALTY TO FULHAM!

GOLLLLL! Darwin Núñez with a bold move coming in through a detour after some great work by Mohamed Salah on the right. Liverpool equals. Play well here at Craven Cottage.

CLOSE! Salah passes the ball to Darwin Núñez, but his back heel shot is saved. Fulham fans sat behind me: ‘This can’t last!’ Could it though? Liverpool are quite frustrated.

MAIL! How did that not get in!? USMNT‘s Tim Ream does brilliantly to win the ball back and forward, then Neeskens Kebano’s shot goes past Alisson but hits the post and bounces off. So close to a second for Fulham.

Subdued start to the second half here at Craven Cottage. Fulham sitting a bit deeper and Liverpool trying to come out from behind.

Darwin Nunez and Harvey Elliott came on early in the second half for Liverpool. Thiago slowly walks away with an injury.

HALFTIME: Fulham 1-0 Liverpool – Mitrovic’s header made the difference for Fulham that really rocked Liverpool here. The Reds have come close on a few occasions, but Fulham fully deserve their lead with new signings Pereira and Palhinha particularly impressive.

MAIL! Luis Díaz hits the post with a nice effort that almost hits a shot from an impossible angle. Liverpool so close to equalizing.

It should be 1-1. Andy Robertson is at the back post and his ball through the goal barely misses the rushing Liverpool players. Very good game, this one.

GOLLLLL! That was coming. Aleksandar Mitrovic heads the back post as he towers over Trent Alexander-Arnold to point his head. Fulham totally deserve that advantage. They have been excellent so far. The local fans have gone absolutely crazy here at Craven Cottage!

BLOCK! Harrison Reed’s shot is well blocked by Robertson and Mitrovic twice almost made it to the end of a cross. Fulham have a real chance here. Liverpool still hasn’t started.

The Fulham fans are, shall we say, ‘disgusted with the refereeing’ in this first half. Joel Matip has gotten away with some questionable tackles. The hosts still resist.

CLOSE! Fulham’s Pereira takes a free kick which Tim Ream heads wide, then Joao Palhinha’s effort is deflected wide. Very good pressure from the hosts.

Luis Diaz has the ball in the back of the net with a beautiful curved shot… but Andy Robertson was offside in the build-up. However, a decent finish from Diaz and much better from Liverpool.

Fulham have a real chance here. Antonee Robinson flying down the left flank at every opportunity. Liverpool seem a bit shaken. Local fans love it.

KICK OFF: And a very good opportunity for Fulham right away! Alexander-Arnold’s clearance falls squarely on Mitrovic and he takes too many touches, then pushes an effort harmlessly wide. Mitro seemed to be a little unsure if he hit that or not.

The crews are out, it’s loud here at Cottage and we’re ready. Let’s go.

Hello and welcome to Craven Cottage! It’s a beautiful day here on the banks of the River Thames. What an amazing place to kick off the first Saturday of the new season.


Fulham team news, injuries, lineup

Joe Bryan and Harry Wilson are ruled out with wrist and knee problems respectively, while new signings Bernd Leno, Shane Duffy and Kevin Mbabu are on the bench, while other new boys Joao Palhinha and Andres Pereira are starters. USMNT duo Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson start for Fulham.


Liverpool team news, injuries, lineup

Jurgen Klopp has been mixing things up throughout pre-season, but we saw what came very close to his best starting line-up in the Community Shield win against Manchester City last weekend.

Liverpool are without Diogo Jota, Curtis Jones, Caoimhin Kelleher and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, while Kostas Tsimikas, Naby Keita and Ibrahima Konate are shaking off the punches. Alisson returns to goal after missing most of pre-season with an abdominal problem.


key stories

For Fulham it has been a wild ride over the last five seasons with two relegations and three promotions to the Premier League. Life at Craven Cottage is anything but boring. All their hopes are pinned once again on Aleksandar Mitrovic, as the Serbian goalscoring machine (at least in the second division) will be dotted with crosses and the hope is that he can finally be more prolific in the Premier League. Marco Silva has been outspoken that Fulham won’t be making many signings this summer and that staying on their feet will be a huge achievement. Silva loves to fight back and needs a strong start to the season to generate positive vibes. Side note: Fulhamerica remains strong with Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson set to play key roles this season.

Liverpool have had a pretty decent and quiet off-season overall. They sold Sadio Mane earlier in the summer but replaced him with the club’s record signing Darwin Nunez, who seems destined to be the next forward star at Anfield. And oh yeah, they also managed to sign Mohamed Salah to a new long-term contract. Klopp’s side have had some strange results in pre-season but are warming up nicely for the new campaign and the big questions revolve around how Nunez, Diaz and Salah will fit together as a forward trio, plus how much gas they have. Jordan Henderson. and Thiago Alcanatara have gone in the tank for another push for all four trophies.
