Jurgen Klopp was clearly delighted for his Liverpool team to reach 30 points for the season thus far.
Cottagers’ striker Aleksander Mitrovic had what appeared a perfectly legitimate goal ruled out for offside late in the first period, only to see his side go behind moments later thanks to Mohamed Salah.
Substitute Xherdan Shaqiri subsequently doubled Liverpool’s lead eight minutes into the second half with an excellent volleyed goal.
“It’s a good result and we have 30 points – that’s perfect,” Klopp told BT Sport after the game.
“I only saw it once [Fulham’s offside ‘goal’]. Maybe it was offside, but we scored a good first goal and our second was brilliant.”
Liverpool were not as rampant as they had been in previous games at home, which Klopp put down to the positive endeavour of Sunday’s opponents.
“I expected this kind of game. It was harder but Fulham have a lot of quality and changed their approach. They didn’t give us any chance to press them and made life a little bit uncomfortable.”
