The Reds can thank you very much Darwin Nunez. Liverpool have been abused by a very good side from Fulham, as Liverpool conceded a 2-2 draw on Saturday afternoon at Craven Cottage Park during the first day of the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp’s men, after twice trailing Aleksandar Mitrovic (32 and 71), managed to snatch a small point thanks to top scorer Darwin Nunez (63th place), and then pass to Mohamed Salah (80th).

Entering this meeting very calmly, Virgil van Dijk’s teammates were surprised after a half hour of intense pressure and all-terrain pressure from Marco Silva’s men, and Aleksandar Mitrovic took advantage of Trent’s negative on Alexander-Arnold with a long cross into the far corner. From Kenny Tite to trick Alisson with a winning header under the crossbar (32, 1-0). Logically, the Reds tried to respond before the break to no avail, and Luis Diaz saw his very beautiful cross from the left on Marek Rodak’s goal (38).
In addition, the Reds lost to Thiago Alcantara
After their master was denied the playing of Thiago Alcantara just minutes after returning from the locker room with a left thigh injury (48th), Liverpool completely changed their face under their rising star Darwin Nunez. Already close to equalizing after an hour after a perfect cross from Mohamed Salah, the Uruguayan striker replaced his team in the direction of travel after only three minutes, his second attempt Madjer on the midfield of Al-Masry ends this time with a goal. (63, 1-1).
Back at the height of this very difficult ascent, Liverpool then thought they could easily take advantage of a team unaccustomed to the very difficult matches of the Premier League. But the Reds stumbled again over the carpet at Craven Cottage. Having fallen into the trap of stealth and deceptive dribbling of the indefatigable Mitrovic, Van Dijk received an avoidable penalty that the Serbian striker calmly converted (71, 2-1).
With their backs to the wall with twenty minutes left, Jürgen Klopp’s men then relied on their formidable attacking tandem, with Darwin Nunez turning the ball past his partner Mohamed Salah, a brilliant start from Trent Alexander-Arnold (80, 2-2). Liverpool have been assaulted throughout the Fulham squad without a knot, opening their 2022/2023 season with a snag. Without the omnipresent Darwin Nunez still decisive once he entered, the Reds would undoubtedly have left empty-handed from their trip to southwest London.
