Salah and Shaqiri see Liverpool sweep aside strugglers Fulham

The Egypt forward has 34 goals in 36 appearances at Anfield since joining Liverpool in the offseason of 2017.

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.

Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri were both on target as Liverpool beat Fulham 2-0 at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday.

"I know it's not easy playing against a really fast counter-attack like their three front players, but we must look for our chance, be fearless, and show the mentality at the end, for fighting, for running with them, for challenging with them, and for a chance to win". Slavisa Jokanovic's men remain bottom of the table going into the worldwide break.

Afterwards, Klopp acknowledged his side were made to work hard for the win by a Fulham side who created a handful of first-half chances, but ultimately was satisfied by the manner in which his team secured maximum points as they signed off for the worldwide break. Jürgen Klopp agreed that his team "were a bit lucky" with the offside decision but argued the Serbia striker was level with Andy Robertson because of a foul on the Liverpool left-back. We created, we passed, we accelerated in the right moments.

"It's a completely absurd situation to defend".

We'll be back for more Bucks talk next week, most likely following the conclusion of their west coast road trip. The league's 10th-leading scorer (25.8 points per game) was talking defense, not offense, after the game.

"But I also can not and will not ignore everything else we have done so far this season". I am wishing them all the best for the rest of the season.

It could have been even better for the Blues but Jordan Pickford did well to deny Marcos Alonso on the volley in the first half and Alonso hit the post after the break.

"We can talk about this situation for hours, but the damage is done".

Chelsea's manager Maurizio Sarri set a record in the Premier League era by completing his first dozen games without a defeat, but he would have expected more than a goalless draw from the home game with Everton. Guinea play one game against Ivory Coast I think and that will be tough for him, but good for him.

But despite City largely controlling the game, it took a late third goal by their substitute Ilkay Gundogan to ensure there could be no repeat of United's dramatic comeback to win 3-2 in the same fixture last season.
