Mitrovic immediately performs a stunt by PhD student Fulham against Liverpool (video)

Liverpool dominated the first half, but without blowing Fulham away. The national champion in The Championship last season certainly did not present himself as a brute of a higher level.

Andreas Pereira (ex-PSV and Manchester United), for example, played strong in midfield in the first half. Yet it was the man who already claimed a lot of attention at Craven Cottage last season, who once again claimed the spotlight.

Alexsandar Mitrovic scored a typical Mitrovic goal. He ruffed Alexander-Arnold in the air at the far post and scored with his head.

Fulham kept getting better and came very close to 0-2. Neeskens Kebano (ex-Genk) outwitted everyone with a blistering shot, but the double lead exploded on the post. That was a turning point.

Liverpool coach Klopp brought summer signing Darwin Nunez into the squad. That made a clear difference. The Uruguayan was immediately threatening and after a few chances it was also hit. He scored by pushing a cross in behind the supporting leg.

Liverpool were back in the game but soon conceded a penalty that will be discussed in England. Van Dijk may or may not touch Mitrovic. Mitrogol scored perfectly: 2-1. Liverpool did not give up and were rewarded. Nunez did not control the ball well, but gave Salah the perfect assist. Henderson even hit the crossbar after the 2-3.
