'Solid', 'A Little Fortunate' — Liverpool Fans React to Win Over Fulham

Share:

The complexion of Liverpool’s game against Fulham changed in 13 dramatic seconds this afternoon, with Salah firing Liverpool in front just after Alexander Mitrovic had a goal rightly denied for offside.

It was far from a vintage display from Liverpool but the Reds controlled the game from then on, with Shaqiri adding another in the second half to ensure Klopp’s side (temporarily) returned to the top of the Premier League table with an ultimately comfortable 2-0 win.

The most apt word to describe the performance would probably be ‘solid’; although the liquid football Liverpool were so renowned for last season was still lacking, it was more than fine in a game where valuable points may have been dropped in prior seasons.

The football did improve significantly after the break, with Liverpool managing to control the game and once the second went in from Shaqiri, any chance of a Fulham fightback looked nigh on impossible.

New boys Fabinho and Shaqiri were rightly praised for their performances, with Shaqiri in particular showing his value to the team and why he remains an absolute bargain at £13.5m with a beautiful goal and movement off the ball that helped the team progress from the midfield to attack.

 

It was an encouraging display after the nightmare in Belgrade a few days prior and despite performances occasionally being lacklustre, sitting on 30 points — a record for Liverpool after 12 games played in the Premier League era, there can be little for fans to qualm about at the moment.
