There was a bit of controversy about Liverpool's opening goal. Aleksandar Mitrovic thought he had given Fulham an unlikely lead when he headed in, but the linesman adjudged the striker to be offside. Replays appear to suggest it was an extremely close call. Just seconds later, Liverpool were up the other end celebrating Mohamed Salah's eighth goal of the season after a rapid breakaway. Anfield will not care, though, having watched their side start sluggish in this early kick-off.
