The best photos as Liverpool beat Fulham at Anfield

11 November 2018

Liverpool went back to the top of the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, seeing off Fulham with relative ease in a 2-0 win at Anfield.


The Reds were looking for a response after Tuesday’s bitterly disappointing 2-0 loss to Red Star Belgrade, as the bottom-place Cottagers headed to Merseyside.

Jurgen Klopp made four changes to the midweek side, with Joe Gomez, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Roberto Firmino all coming in.

The players participated in an immaculately-observed minute’s silence for Remembrance Day, before getting their teeth into the action.

The early kick-off and English winter meant for some picturesque shots in the shadows.

Liverpool were struggling to find their best form in the first half, with Aleksandar Mitrovic having a header ruled out for offside.

Just 13 seconds later, a swift Reds break saw Mohamed Salah played in by Trent Alexander-Arnold, however, with the Egyptian netting his eighth goal of the season.

Early in the second half, the hosts’ lead was doubled in style, with Shaqiri volleying home Andy Robertson‘s excellent cross.

The Swiss is becoming a firm favourite at Anfield and celebrated in front of the Kop.

Liverpool cruised to victory from that point on, with Klopp celebrating with his players at the final whistle and Robertson appreciating his song being sung by the Kop.

The boredom of yet another international break has now arrived, with Liverpool not playing for another 13 days.

Next up for Klopp’s men is a trip to Watford on November 24, as they look to remain undefeated in the Premier League.
