Slavisa Jokanovic says offside call at Liverpool was ‘disrespectful’ to Fulham

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp can finally claim to have turned the side from an exciting but defensively fragile outfit to one that has an excellent harmony between going forward and keeping them out.

Then, 13 seconds later, Liverpool were ahead.

Aleksandar Mitrovic thought he had given Fulham the lead in the 41st minute when he headed in, only to see the assistant referee raise his flag for offside.

After an impeccably-observed minute's silence to mark the centenary of the Armistice in World War I, it was Liverpool who started the stronger.

Roger Federer makes surprising admission about 100th title at ATP Finals
Anderson fired down an ace to save a second set point and, despite failing to convert a third match point, he would not be denied. Was that Roger Federer or Nick Kyrgios out there? Once I became world No 1 anyways.


"I don't want to compare it, but against Arsenal we scored a clearer goal which was not offside and didn't get it".

"The most important thing is reacting in a situation like that". You can not change it.

When the Reds did find the target, Fulham goalkeeper Sergio Rico proved tough to beat, standing up tall to block from Salah after some neat interplay with Roberto Firmino, and also denying the Egyptian's half-volley from a tight angle with a strong hand. In the end we were a bit lucky. We can not change it. Fulham can not change it.

- Liverpool have kept 10 clean sheets in 14 Premier League games at Anfield in 2018; as many as they'd kept in the last calendar year (10 clean sheets in 21 home league games). "The reaction was brilliant". They created the chances and scored the goals, but we didn't defend this counter-attack well, although this counter-attack shouldn't exist.

Man City 'untouchable', says United boss Mourinho ahead of derby
Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku has missed United's past two matches with a muscle problem, but could return against City. Asked what it was about Aguero he was not a fan of, Mourinho responded: "I keep [that] for me".


"I am happy to be out there; we have great centre-backs and even Joel is not even on the bench and that says a lot about our squad as well".

Liverpool proceeded to dominate the rest of the game, but could not add any more goals with Fulham looking more resolute at the back than in most previous games.

As the worldwide break now arrives, Klopp said he is happy for Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson, who both appeared as substitutes after hamstring injuries, to join up with their respective national teams.

Italian giants Juventus are willing to give Manchester United the choice of one of three players as they step up their attempts to re-sign France midfielder Paul Pogba. Hendo is 100 percent fit and needs games as well.
