Salah rescues Liverpool as Mitrovic shines in entertaining draw

Fulham came close to producing one of the biggest shocks on the opening weekend of any Premier League season as Aleksandar Mitrovic marked his return to the top flight with two goals in a 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Craven Cottage.

Mohamed Salah levelled for the visitors with 10 minutes remaining to deny Marco Silva's side a famous victory after a performance full of endeavour that celebrated Fulham being back in the top division.

Darwin Nunez came off the bench to open his account (64) and cancel out Mitrovic's first strike from Salah's cross while Jordan Henderson might have won it for Liverpool in second-half stoppage time when his curled effort cannoned off the crossbar.
