Premier League season with a defeat at Fulham's Craven Cottage, but in the last ten minutes of Matchday 1 came the Pharaoh, Mohamed Salah, to salvage a point that will do little good at the start of the year. The Reds struggled in the first half as Aleksandar Mitrovic scored in the 32nd minute, but Darwin Nunez restored the Anfield side's composure by equalising in the 64th minute.

In a team move Mohamed Salah sent in a cross and when the charrúa found the opportunity he deceived the Blancos by slamming home a back-heeled finish to equalise and score his first goal for his new team in masterly fashion.

However, the joy was short-lived when Aleksandar Mitrović's brace came. The striker was brought down in the box after receiving contact from centre-back Virgil Van Dijk, and he himself decided to put the ball on the spot to beat Alisson Becker and retake the lead in the 72nd minute.

The pressure did not work against the Liverpool FC players. In the next period the visitors went on the attack to try to get the score back on level terms, and when Darwin Nunez was given the space to send in a dangerous service Mohamed Salah did not miss the chance to send the ball into the net with ten minutes to go.

Dream duo

Thus, Nunez and Diaz showed that they are a duo that can solve games, although it will be necessary to see more time together on the pitch, if Jurgen Klopp decides so, for them to understand each other and complement each other completely, but in the meantime, they will be the duo that will make Liverpool fans dream.
