Liverpool 2-0 Fulham: Shaqiri, Salah fire Liverpool to win over rock-bottom Fulham [Tweets]

Liverpool were not at their clinical best but goals from Xherdan Shaqiri and Mohamed Salah ensured a 2-0 win over a struggling Fulham side at Anfield.

Liverpool started the game brighter of the two sides. But, despite regular spells of dominance and barrage of attempts at the Fulham goal, the attackers seem to lack incisiveness in the final third or with their shots. But, Mohamed Salah soon swept the ball inside the back of the net, thanks to a beautiful ball from Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Liverpool did not take long to double their lead, with Andrew Robertson finding Xherdan Shaqiri unmarked in the box in the second half. The Swiss speedster duly obliged to extend the advantage. Fulham were not totally irrelevant though. They had their own share of chances, including a header that was disallowed for offside when the score was 0-0.

Despite not being at his best, Mohamed Salah once again found the back of the net and could have had a couple more if he was in his usual form. Twitterati seem to agree with it.

But, unknowingly, Mohamed Salah was part of controversy during the match. Fulham star Aleksandar Mitrovic’s goal was flagged for offside, which upon replays is shown to be wrongly given by the officials, with Salah scoring just seconds after. Twitter spotted this, with the call for VAR to be introduced growing stronger.

Shaqiri though, continued to earn praise for his performances, with his goal adding that much-needed cushion.
