Salah penalty rescues Liverpool from jaws of defeat at Fulham

Salah penalty rescues Liverpool from jaws of defeat at Fulham

Mohamed Salah’s penalty gained Liverpool a point as they came from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday.

A fierce finish by Bobby De Cordova-Reid on 25 minutes had handed the home team a lead their first-half ascendancy more than merited.

Sadio Mane could not keep a header down when picked out in the box by Curtis Jones and Salah flashed a hit wide after spinning on Trent Alexander-Arnold’s square pass.

But the Reds improved after the interval and eventually hauled themselves level from the spot, Salah converting following a handball to ensure it ended with one point apiece.

The Egyptian has now scored 10 goals in the Premier League from 11 matches.

Before the action began, there was a minute’s applause in honour of former Fulham and Senegal midfielder Papa Bouba Diop, who passed away last month.
