Premier League scores: Live updates with Tottenham, Leeds, Newcastle in action after Liverpool thrash Fulham

The Premier League is back and the opening weekend got off to the best possible start for Arsenal with a 2-0 away win at Crystal Palace on Friday. Saturday started with a bang as Fulham showed that an away trip to a newly promoted team is no easy task even for a team like Liverpool. An early goal from Aleksandar Mitrovic set things in motion as Liverpool struggled until they made a double change in the 51st minute. Thiago felt something in his leg and was taken off for Harvey Elliott and Roberto Firmino was withdrawn in a tactical change for Darwin Nunez.

Nunez saves the first goal and help Salah save Liverpool a point

The Premier League resumed in typical style on Saturday with a 2-2 draw between Fulham and Liverpool at Craven Cottage. Nunez took the lead as he made a full start registering a goal and an assist with Mohamed Salah on the other end of each but a mistake from Virgil van Dijk proved costly.

Jurgen Klopp’s men took their time to progress and it was the newly promoted hosts who went ahead through Aleksandar Mitrovic’s header. As part of a double change early in the second half for Liverpool, Darwin Nunez made his debut and Uruguay did not need to draw the Reds level for long. Parity lasted less than 10 minutes, however, as Mitrovic doubled his tally from the penalty spot to leave the visitors in contention. Mitrovic lost the ball but a penalty was awarded and confirmed after a VAR review.

Nunez came to the rescue with nine minutes remaining as he teed up Mo Salah to level and maintain his incredible scoring record in all six Liverpool games. In the end, it was a point earned by Klopp’s men as Fulham went ahead on several occasions and Marco Silva’s Cottagers will be delighted with their spirited display. With most of their new signings on the bench from the start, it’s a great result to start the season, with quite a building block moving forward.
