Liverpool vs Fulham: Silky Virgil van Dijk nutmegs for fun

Aleksandar Mitrovic Fulham 2018-19

But their shortcomings were exposed again when the unmarked Shaqiri wandered into the box to casually volley home Andy Robertson's left-wing cross.

Robertson was denied a third by a good Rico save, but Liverpool had few problems seeing out a ninth league win of the season, while concerns for Slavisa Jokanovic look to be building.

Jokanovic may feel doubly aggreived as the ball was still rolling when Alisson started the counter from a free kick, which referee Paul Tierney failed to spot, and the Londoners were out of the match when Liverpool doubled their lead eight minutes after the restart.

Shaqiri twice messed up shots from good positions and the home side's profligacy should really have been punished, with Ryan Sessegnon dragging wide when clean through on goal before Alisson nearly parried an Andre Schurrle shot into his path.

Liverpool take on Watford on the 24th November, after the global break has concluded.

Fulham thought they had taken the lead at Anfield when Aleksandar Mitrovic leapt to head home Tom Cairney's free-kick.

What does it mean? The Egypt forward has 34 goals in 36 appearances at Anfield since joining Liverpool in the offseason of 2017.

Joe Perry Hospitalized After Surprise Performance With Billy Joel
The 68-year-old was performing " Walk This Way " with Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden in NY when he reportedly collapsed . Paramedics were working on Perry for 40 minutes reportedly "placing a tracheal tube down his throat to clear the air path".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits his side may have been lucky, both with the offside decision and Ryan Sessegnon's miss when clean through midway through the first half, but felt his side deserved their victory.

United remain eighth, 12 points behind the leaders, and manager Mourinho refused to talk about his team still having any sort of title chances.

- Fulham have conceded 31 goals from their first 12 Premier League games this season; only Barnsley in 1997-98 conceded more goals at this stage of a Premier League campaign (35).

The on-loan Sevilla stopper kept the scoreline respectable with a good save from Roberton on 63 minutes, with the Scotsman a constant second-half threat on the overlap but unable to add a goal to his assist after being released by a well-timed Firmino through-ball.

Heading into Sunday's game though, Liverpool FC had drawn three of their last five games in the Premier League - their latest stalemate a 1-1 draw at Arsenal earlier this month.

- Mohamed Salah has scored against 19 of the 21 Premier League opponents he's faced with Liverpool, failing only against Man Utd and Swansea.
