Centre-back Ibrahima Konate has joined an injury roster that already includes Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring), Diogo Jota (thigh), Curtis Jones (calf), second-choice goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher (groin) and Kostas Tsimikas (knock), with Also Naby Keita is missing. For the hosts, Marco Silva heading into the summer includes Joao Palhinha making his Premier League debut, while last year’s top goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic hopes to pick up where he left off as they try to avoid the decline.

Liverpool came from behind twice to save a point against an exceptional Fulham side. They picked up where they left off in the Championship last season, taking their first points on the board in the Premier League.

Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice for the home side and Liverpool’s new striker Darwin Nunez opened his account before the ever-trustworthy Mo Salah earned the Reds a point.

Jordan Henderson nearly seals the game for the Reds with a glorious attack from outside the box. He smokes it well and Rodak is beaten. Fulham is saved by the crossbar because the ball doesn’t dive enough.

The whistle goes for full time and points are shared at Craven Cottage.

90+3 min: Alexander-Arnold throws the ball into the penalty area and tries to play in Mo Salah. Fulham clears the ball for Aleksandar Mitrovic, who holds it up brilliantly and then goes down with a cramp.

He’s fine, but goes through the motions of wasting time to get his team closer to the finish.
