Fulham 2-2 Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp says ‘performance felt like a defeat’ as Thiago suffers hamstring injury

Jurgen Klopp admitted Liverpool’s performance in the 2-2 draw with Fulham on the opening weekend of the Premier League season “was a defeat”, with the best aspect of the day being the result.

Fulham have proven difficult opponents for Klopp’s side in recent years – the Cottagers now unbeaten in their last three top-flight meetings – and Liverpool had to come from behind twice to cancel out two goals from Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Serbia striker has notoriously struggled for goals in the top division but showed no sign of any issues against the Reds, opening his account for the campaign in the 32nd minute.


Darwin Nunez cancelled out Fulham’s lead with a cleverly improvised backheel just after the hour mark. However, a Mitrovic penalty restored the home side’s advantage.

But not all was lost as Nunez then set up Salah – who calmly slotted home Liverpool’s crucial equaliser with 10 minutes left in the game.

The Liverpool manager said afterwards: “The best thing about the game was the result. We got a point from a really bad game. The result was fine, I don’t think we deserved more than that. The performance can be massively improved.

“We could have won the game because we had good chances but it was probably a bit too much today.
