Liverpool continue title push against fading Fulham

Tom Cairney receives instructions from manager Slavisa Jokanovic

Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier League table and inflicted a sixth successive defeat on rock-bottom Fulham with a 2-0 victory at Anfield this lunchtime.

This was not a hugely improved performance from Liverpool after their poor display against Red Star Belgrade, but it was enough to see off a Fulham side bereft of confidence.

As the Liverpool defenders rush out after Fulham elected to play a short corner, it's the Scottish global Robertson that is a little slower to react than his teammates, and while the rest of the Liverpool players have left Mitrovic in an offside position, Robertson is playing the striker on side and having dispatched his header past Alisson Becker the Cottagers should have been a goal to the good. His visit to Anfield was no exception: he missed two chances in the first half, one of which was a sitter, and offered next to nothing after Fulham fell behind.

Xherdan Shaqiri doubled the lead in the second half with a well-taken volley from Andrew Robertson's cross to leave Fulham firmly rooted to the bottom of the table.

The goal was the 31st Fulham have conceded this season - no other side in Europe's Top 5 leagues has shipped so many. It's hard to see for the ref but it's a clear foul on Robbo because Robbo is our second free man, our zonal guy to go there to avoid the cross, and he couldn't because I'm not sure which player of Fulham capped him.

- Liverpool have picked up 30 points from their opening 12 Premier League games (W9 D3 L0) - their joint-best total at this stage in the competition (level with 2002-03).

But goals from Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri at Anfield helped the Reds return to winning ways in the top flight and ensure they headed into the worldwide break on the back of a victory.

Replays showed the decision was extremely close and Salah punished Fulham shortly after. Subs: Milner 6, Henderson 6, Keita 6. Subs: Seri 5, Johansen 6, Vietto 5.

After his header, Mitrovic started his celebration too.

Liverpool take on Watford on the 24th November, after the global break has concluded. Robertson sends a cross into the box from a deep position and the Swiss has plenty of space to send his first-time effort into the net from around eight yards!
