Liverpool eases past Fulham after controversial goal

Xherdan Shaqiri scored the other goal in the 53rd minute, a cushioned volley into the corner from Andrew Robertson's deep cross, as unbeaten Liverpool won for the ninth time in its opening 12 games. Instead, play was allowed to carry on and Fulham were punished.

Ironically, it was Alan Pardew who then replaced Pulis on 29 November 2017 and was a complete disaster, winning only one of 18 PL matches and losing his final eight games.

With Fulham regularly getting overran in central midfield, Shaqiri sparked a number of Liverpool attacks and capped his performance with a fine goal in the second half.

With 40 minutes gone during Liverpool's clash with Fulham at Anfield, a succession of decisions changed the course of the match and revealed why the Premier League must institute a Video Assistant Referee system. By the way, maybe because of Robbo he is not 100 per cent offside, with his heel or whatever, and before that somebody holds him.

Klopp praised the "brilliant" reactions of Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Salah that combined to punish Fulham but insisted the offside decision was far from clearcut.

The Premier League's bottom club performed well at Anfield but were incensed when a marginal offside call went against Mitrovic with the game goalless.

"In this country normally you can not show disrespect to the referee and this is a problem because it's shown disrespect to my team, myself and Fulham supporters". We had big chances early with Sadio, Shaq, Mo in the box where they blocked it in the last second, where the goalie could make a save.

Google wants developers to add dark themes to save battery life
Presenting this data to developers seems like the first step of making a case that integrating dark UI options is important. While all-white interfaces may look better to some, a dark mode is friendlier to your battery , your screen, and your eyes.

The Egypt global enjoyed a remarkable debut season at Anfield in which he broke the record for most goals in a single Premier League campaign by netting 32 times in just 36 appearances.

"I am happy to be out there; we have great centre-backs and even Joel is not even on the bench and that says a lot about our squad as well".

However, Liverpool are in discussions with the Football Association about whether Joe Gomez will feature in England's two fixtures next week after a taxing period.

"I am still in touch with the staff though so I wish them all the best".

"Joe had all the games". We can talk about this situation for hours but the damage is done.

"I can not make the decisions for the managers of the different countries, so if they call them up then they go there".
