Last season runner’s up Liverpool came from behind twice to secure a draw against newly promoted Fulham thanks to a goal and an assist from Darwin Nunez.
Liverpool who bossed up last season Premier League champions Manchester City to clinch the Community Shield, found themselves behind when Aleksandar Mitrovic converted a Kenny Tete’s cross in the 32nd minute.
Luis Diaz had his effort hit the post after an earlier goal was ruled for offside when both sides were nil nil.

Nunez came in a substitute before equalizing for Jurgen Klopp side from close range. Mitrovic doubled Fulham’s lead from the penalty spot after he was brought down by Virgil van Dijk.
The former Benfica striker provided an assist ten minutes to time before Mohamed Salah salvaged a point for the Reds in their first Premier League clash of the season.
Fulham have been a constant threat to Liverpool back in 2021 by beating them but the win did not save them from facing relegation.
Klopp will now focus on regrouping his squad and focus on each game at a time. They will also recover from the departure of Sadio Mane who had been an important player in the club.
