Liverpool boss Klopp: We didn't deserve a win at Fulham.

Updated: Aug 7, 2022

The Reds had to come from behind twice to seal a draw against Fulham.

Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice as Fulham threatened to hand Liverpool a defeat in their opening Premier League game of the season before Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah helped secure a point for the Reds.

Jurgen Klopp was pleased his Liverpool side got a point from their Premier League opener against Fulham on Saturday.

The Merseyside club, who beat the champions Manchester City in the Community Shield last weekend, had to come from behind twice at Craven Cottage as Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah found the net to cancel out Aleksandar Mitrovic's double [a header in the first half and a penalty in the second].

It was the first time Mitrovic scored a Premier League goal for Fulham at Craven Cottage since 29 January 2019, when he netted two headers in a 4-2 win against Brighton

Following the match, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp speaking told BT Sport: "The best thing about the game was the result. We got a point from a really bad game.

"The result was fine, I don't think we deserved more than that. The performance can be massively improved.

"We could have won the game because we had good chances but it was probably a bit too much today."

Speaking to BBC Match of the Day, the German said of Thiago Alcantara's injury: "I have no idea, it looks pretty bad. He didn't look too happy."

On drop in standards after Community Shield win, he said: "All I'm thinking is where did I go wrong. All the boys didn't want to play like this, so we will have to find what it was."

The mounting injury list at Anfield will bother Klopp with the season just kicking off. It remains to be seen whether Liverpool will change their thoughts on signings to alleviate injury woes.
