The Jurgen Klopp-tutored side started the game brightly, and Sadio Mane should have put them ahead within just four minutes of game play, but failed to capitalise on Alexander-Arnold’s bouncing cross.

The hosts were presented with another goal-scoring chance in the 16th minute after an impressive build up involving Firmino and Salah, but the Egyptian squandered the chance.

However, with four minutes left to half-time, Salah gifted his side a deserved lead moments after Mitrovic had a goal disallowed for Fulham.

Upon the resumption of the second half, Xherdan Shaqiri extended Liverpool's lead who finished superbly with a volley across Rico to make it 2-0 as the hosts went on to cart away all the three points.

The Sunday encounter was a must-win for the Reds who suffered a shock 2-0 defeat away to Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League in midweek.

Fulham, on their part faced a tall order ahead of the Liverpool tie, having won just one game all season - against Burnley in August - and have conceded 18 goals in their last six games, losing each of them.
