Liverpool home defeat stretched by Fulham to six

Fulham pulled a shocking 1-0 win against Liverpool to condemn Jurgen Klopp side to a sixth home defeat as they struggle to make an impact in the Premier League.

Mario Lemina made the difference between the two sides when he dispossessed Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah and send the ball to the far right side of the goalkeeper.

It was the first win for Fulham at Anfield since 2012 as they sit in the bottom third of the table amid possibility of a relegation.

Liverpool who were on a roll last season suffered their first home defeat against Burnley and ever since they have been beaten by Brighton, Manchester City, Everton, Chelsea and on Sunday by Fulham.

Seven changes were made on Sunday by Jurgen Klopp following their loss to Chelsea but the visitors were the better side of the evening.

In what was to be a free kick saw Mohamed Salah caught unaware before the ball was taken from him and sent past Alisson who could not stop it.

Alphonse Areola denied Diogo Jota who was making his return since November when he acrobatically saved the ball before Sadio Mane had his header hit the post.

The loss leaves the Reds in seventh position with 43 points as Fulham settled for third last position with 26 points and level with Brighton who are one position above them.
