Liverpool continued their excellent start to the Premier League season with a 2-0 win over struggling Fulham at Anfield earlier today.
Egypt international Mohamed Salah puts the Reds ahead in the 41st minute just seconds after Fulham had a Aleksandar Mitrovic goal controversially ruled out for offside.
Xherdan Shaqiri then finished cooly from close range in the 53rd minute to seal what turned out to be a comfortable win for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Speaking after the game Liverpool‘s young right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold revealed he was happy his side were able to pick up another three points and maintain their best ever start to a Premier League campaign.
“Fulham are a good side and we knew it was going to be tough. They came here with a game plan and they tried to execute it.’’ The England international told BT Sport.
“We are happy with three points. We’re quite a possession based team and we try to get the opposition on the back-foot. For any team coming to Anfield, it’s going to be hard for them to dominate the ball.”
Today’s victory sees Liverpool move to the top of table, although that will more than likely only be on a temporary basis with Chelsea and Man City set to face Everton and Manchester United respectively this afternoon.
