Liverpool missed the opportunity to rise to the top of the Premier League table after a 1-1 draw with Fulham on Sunday in the competition’s twelfth stage.

Fulham imposed absolute control over the first half. He scored a goal through Bobby Reid, and the home team could have added more goals during this half had it not been for the brilliance of Brazilian goalkeeper Alison Baker, who responded valiantly to more than one dangerous opportunity.

The lack of physical fitness caused Fulham to be denied the three points in the second half, which saw the Egyptian international star Mohamed Salah score the equalizer for Liverpool in the 78th minute with a penalty kick.

Salah raised his scoring tally in the tournament this season to ten goals, to share the top scorer in the competition with South Korean Heung Min Son, the Tottenham Hotspur striker, with a goal difference behind Dominic Calvert Lewin, leaders of Everton.

Liverpool remained in second place in the competition’s ranking with 25 points, trailing by goal difference from Tottenham, equal to him in the same score, before the upcoming confrontation between the two teams in the next stage of the competition at Anfield, the stronghold of the red team, next Wednesday.

In contrast, Fulham rose to eight points in seventeenth place.
