Well, its a point, its a crap point. To be quite honest we didnt even deserve the point. Fulham deserved all 3 from that and we need to buck the hell up because if we play like that we arent getting squat this year.

Not a terrible result given Fulham were spotted a goal but really we could've been buried in the first half, hopefully not a sign of what is to come. Dreadful result in terms of any title challenge already, going to dig a hole like last year

Fulham look pretty good excluding the diving nonsense.

Not the best start, least we recovered enough for a draw.

60 minutes of that match we never got going. Midfield also mostly absent. Klopp has to start Nunez over Bobby, Nunez is clearly a player that doesn't need long to settle same as Diaz didnt

Serious issues in that squad. Something isn’t right. We’ll struggle to stay on pace with City at this rate and it’s going to be a very long season.

Lucky to come away with a point but it feels like a loss considering we've lost two league titles by a single point.

Trent sucked, the midfield sucked and Firmino sucked. How is he still getting game time? :o

Robertson and Salah played well but the difference Nunez made was ridiculous, we need to keep him fit this season.

Well that was mostly rubbish. Fulham ran all over us in the first half, which considering we had our first choice midfield + Firmino supplementing them was a bit concerning. We played well in spells in the 2nd half but at no point did we have any real control in midfield to sustain pressure. We were probably a bit unlucky with the two decisions around their goals (the challenge on Henderson was no less of a foul than their pen) but we didn't deserve to win that with the performance we put in.

They're mostly short term injuries but we could do with getting a few players back fit too. We started pre-season with a fully fit squad and now Konate, Kostas, Jones, Keita, Thiago & Jota are all out.

Fulham play like that all season they should comfortably stay out of trouble.

Liverpool play like that all season and City'll be laughing their way to another league title :p

That Nunez guy looks good!
