The good image left by Fulham at Anfield was not enough to stop Liverpool (2-0), that controversial hand goal by Mohamed Salah added three more points to fight for the Premier League.
The questionable battle, which marked the future of the game, came in the 40th minute. Tom Cairney, captain of the Cottagers & # 39; found Alekxandar Mitrovic's head in the center of the side and the Serbian scored. The referee canceled it with a doubtful game and, between protests from Fulham, Liverpool used the conjuncture to counterattack quickly.
Trent Alexander-Arnold gave a long pass to Salah, who faced Sergio Rico, was second in the Premier League, and opened the scoring.
The Egyptian changed his sixth goal in the English league, one of the "goalscorers" wrong, and the eighth of the season in all competitions.
Already in the second half, Xherdan Shaqiri, who regained possession after not traveling to Serbia to play in the Champions League, punished Slavisa Jokanovic.
The Swiss materialized with a left-footed delivery from left wing Andrew Robertson and left nailed to the goal line for Rico, unable to do anything before closing, practically at point blank, players with origin in Kosovo.
Liverpool maintain an unbeaten run in the Premier and, waiting for Manchester City and Chelsea to refute their commitments, placed competition leaders with 30 points, one above & # 39; Sky Blues & # 39; and three more than Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
The Fulham, meanwhile, sank a little more, because after Saturday's results, when Cardiff City and Newcastle won and Hudderfield Town and Southampton added, continued as the bottom, with five points, three from safety.
