Liverpool strike through Salah and go on to defeat Fulham

Share

Liverpool are targeting their first league title since 1990 and while Torres wants both of his former sides to lift the trophy, he has revealed he'd prefer Jurgen Klopp's side to win it this season. Xherdan Shaqiri was the closest to finding a finish with a 13th minute drive from the top of the box.

Salah should have put Liverpool ahead earlier than he did, but was unable to control the ball when one-on-one with Sergio Rico in Liverpool's best chance in the opening 15 minutes.

Liverpool did take the lead shortly before half-time but it arrived in controversial circumstances.

Jokanovic may feel doubly aggreived as the ball was still rolling when Alisson started the counter from a free kick, which referee Paul Tierney failed to spot, and the Londoners were out of the match when Liverpool doubled their lead eight minutes after the restart. We showed we can play organised and be solid against a really complicated team.

The 27-year-old has certainly done his cause no harm with another top display today but Shaqiri faces plenty of competition in the middle of the park with Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Adam Lallana, Georginio Wijnaldum and Fabinho vying for three places so Klopp has a welcome selection headache.

Subs not used: Bettinelli, Kebano, Ream, Fosu-Mensah. Cyrus Christie, Alfie Mawson and Calum Chambers entered the lineup.

She was charged for making seven bank transfers totalling $200 million to Swiss foundations during her term as Manila governor. Imelda Marcos was convicted on two counts of corruption in 1993, but the Philippine Supreme Court overturned both convictions.

He said: "When I check the clips now it's Robertson (who) hasn't done a good enough job to squeeze up and my player is onside and scored the goal". For Liverpool, their unbeaten run extends to 11 matches in the league.

"I have feelings for both of them". Alexander-Arnold, in particular, caused plenty of problems down the right flank while also capably dealing with the attacking threat of Ryan Sessegnon. Liverpool was the best time in my career - I love the city, the supporters and the club.

"I'm completely happy, apart from scoring more goals".

He's been instrumental in making sure Liverpool have only conceded five goals in 12 league games and is beginning to form a very fruitful relationship with starlet Joe Gomez.

Shaqiri was drafted into the starting lineup and he made the most of it as he was instrumental in central areas. When there was interest again a year ago, I was very interested in coming to Liverpool straight away in my head, but you also have to see what the plan for you is and how you will fit into it.
