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

A few minutes left here. Will Fulham be able to hold on?

GOAL! Mohamed Salah equalizes for Liverpool. Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross is missed by Tim Ream and the ball bounces to Salah who taps home. What a game!

Fabio Carvalho, the teenage sensation who joined Liverpool from Fulham in the summer, completes a try. Cheers among the home fans.

GOAL! Fulham lead 2-1. Mitrovic converted the penalty after he was clearly fouled by Virgil van Dijk. Incredible scenes here at Craven Cottage. Fulham fans are in dreamland.

PENALTY TO FULHAM!

GOAL! Darwin Nunez with an audacious flick that goes in via a deflection after great work from Mohamed Salah down the right. Liverpool equalise. Play fair and square here at Craven Cottage.

CLOSE! Salah pokes the ball across for Darwin Nunez but his back heel finish is saved. The Fulham fans sat behind me: ‘This can’t last!’ However, could it? Liverpool are getting quite frustrated.

MAIL! How did it not go in!? USMNT‘s Tim Ream does brilliantly to win the ball back and fire forward, then Neeskens Kebano’s shot hits Alisson but hits the post and bounces back out. So close to a 2nd place for Fulham.

Muted start to the second half here at Craven Cottage. Fulham sit a little deeper and Liverpool try to pass from behind.

Darwin Nunez and Harvey Elliott both came on early in the second half for Liverpool. Thiago is slowly coming off with an injury.

BREAK: Fulham 1-0 Liverpool – Mitrovic’s header the difference as Fulham have really rattled Liverpool here. The Reds have come close on a couple of occasions, but Fulham fully deserve their lead with particularly impressive new signings Pereira and Palhinha.

MAIL! Luis Diaz hits the post with a beautiful effort as he almost sneaks a shot in from an impossible angle. Liverpool came close to an equaliser.

It should have been 1-1. Andy Robertson is found at the back post and his ball across goal just misses the Liverpool players. Very good game, this.

TARGET! It came. Aleksandar Mitrovic heads home at the back post as he towers over Trent Alexander-Arnold to nod home. Fulham deserve that lead. They have been good so far. The home fans have gone crazy here at Craven Cottage!

BLOCK! Harrison Reed’s shot is well blocked by Robertson and Mitrovic almost came twice on the end of a cross. Fulham have a real ride here. Liverpool are not yet up and running.

Fulham’s fans are, shall we say, “unhappy with the referee” in this first half. Joel Matip has gotten away with some questionable tackles. Hosts still hold their own.

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

Luis Diaz has the ball in the back of the net with a lovely curling finish… but Andy Robertson was offside in the build-up. Decent finish from Diaz, though, and much better from Liverpool.

Fulham have a real ride here. Antonee Robinson flew down the left flank at every opportunity. Liverpool look a bit rattled. The home fans love it.

KICK OFF: And a very good chance for Fulham right away! Alexander-Arnold’s clearance falls straight to Mitrovic and he takes a few too many touches, then pokes an effort harmlessly wide. Mitro seemed to be a little unsure if he was going to hit it or not.

The teams are out, it’s loud here at the cabin and we’re ready. Let’s go.

Hello and welcome to Craven Cottage! It’s a beautiful day here on the banks of the Thames. What a fantastic place to start the first Saturday of the new season.


News from the Fulham team, injuries, lineups

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 fellow new boys Joao Palhinha and Andres Pereira start. USMNT duo Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson start for Fulham.


Liverpool team news, injuries, lineups

Jurgen Klopp has mixed things up throughout preseason, but we saw what was 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 all out. Alisson returns in goal after missing most of preseason with a stomach problem.


Key stories

For Fulham, it has been a wild ride in 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 once again tied to Aleksandar Mitrovic as the Serbian goal machine (at least in the second tier) will be peppered with crosses and the hope is that he can finally be more productive in the Premier League. Marco Silva has been open about Fulham not making many signings this summer and staying up would be a huge achievement. Silva loves to attack and he needs a good start to the season to build positive vibes. Side note: Fulhamerica remains strong with Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson set to play key roles this season.

Liverpool have had a fairly decent and quiet off-season overall. They sold Sadio Mane early in the summer but replaced him with club record signing Darwin Nunez who looks set to be the next star striker at Anfield. And yes, they managed to sign Mohamed Salah on a new long-term contract too. Klopp’s side have had some strange results in pre-season but they are warming up well for the new campaign and the big questions are around how Nunez, Diaz and Salah will play together as a forward trio, plus how much gas the likes of Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcanatara has gone into the tank for another push for all four trophies.
