London -

Fulham menutup babak pertama laga kontra Liverpool dengan keunggulan 1-0, Sabtu (6/8/2022) malam WIB. Gol dibuat Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Liverpool langsung ditekan Fulham sedari menit awal. Bahkan gawang mereka nyaris bobol karena kesalahan Trent Alexander-Arnold yang gagal menjaga Aleksandar Mitrovic. Untungnya sepakan Mitrovic masih melayang ke atas mistar.

Liverpool kesulitan menciptakan peluang meski menguasai bola sepanjang laga. Pertahanan berlapis Fulham membuat Mohamed Salah dkk. frustrasi dan bahkan kerap diserang balik.

Luis Diaz sempat bikin gol di menit ke-14 tapi dianulir karena Andrew Robertson sudah terjebak offside saat mengirimkan umpan.

Satu peluang didapat Liverpool di menit ke-23 saat crossing Trent dari sisi kanan mengarah ke tengah kotak penalti. Tapi, Salah yang berada di tiang dekat malah mendului rekannya untuk menanduk bola, namun masih melayang.

Semenit kemudian Fulham membalas lewat tembakan Joao Palhinha dari luar kotak penalti, tapi bola membentu Joel Matip dan cuma berujung korner.

Gol! Fulham mengejutkan Liverpool saat membuka keunggulan di menit ke-32. Serangan cepat dari sisi kanan mampu membongkar pertahanan Liverpool lewat Neeskens Kebano dan Kenny Tete.

Tete lantas mengirimkan umpan silang ke tiang jauh dan disambut Mitrovic dengan kepalanya, untuk menjebol jala Alisson di sudut atas.

Liverpool lantas terpancing keluar untuk lebih menyerang dan nyaris menyamakan skor di menit ke-39, andaikan sepakan Luis Diaz tak menerpa mistar.

Hingga turun minum, Fulham tetap mengungguli Liverpool 1-0.

Susunan pemain

Fulham: Marek Rodak; Kenny Tete, Tosin Adarabioyo, Tim Ream, Antonee Robinson; Harrison Reed, Joao Palhinha; Bobby De Cordova-Reid, Andreas Pereira, Neeskens Kebano; Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Liverpool: Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Thiago, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Luis Diaz.
