EPL 2022/23 Matchday 1: Salah secures a point for Liverpool against determined Fulham as rampant Tottenham thrash Southampton at home (Video)

Mohamed Salah secured a point for Liverpool against determined Fulham as rampant Tottenham thrashed Southhampton 4-1 at home on Saturday.

Liverpool had Mohamed Salah to thank once again as his late equaliser saw them rescue a point against a spirited Fulham side in an enthralling 2-2 draw in the first match of the 2022/23 season.

Tottenham Hotspur began their new Premier League campaign with a 4-1 win from behind at home to Southampton on Saturday afternoon, moving top of a very early table.

Aleksandar Mitrovic’s first-half header was cancelled out by Darwin Nunez after the break, and Liverpool had to come from behind once again after the Serb fired home a penalty which was no less than Fulham had deserved.

Salah and Nunez combined for the scrappiest of equalisers ten minutes from time to salvage a point from an otherwise uninspiring performance from Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Fulham began the game with the confidence they played with last season, with Mitrovic seeing a half-chance early on.

It was a very slow start from Liverpool, although Klopp’s men did have the ball in the back of the net 15 minutes in through Luis Diaz, whose nice finish was correctly ruled out for offside.

Despite an active transfer window, Antonio Conte didn’t start any of the club’s six new signings.

Southampton had three of their summer recruits in the XI but it was the familiar face of captain James-Ward Prowse that broke the deadlock in the 12th minute, crisply volleying Moussa Djenepo’s cutback into the turf and over the line.

Below are the Highlights of the game between Fulham and Liverpool:

An hour into the new campaign, Mohammed Salisu recorded a strong contender for blunder of the season. Tottenham’s counter-attack had slowed to a crawl by the time Emerson Royal rolled the ball across the box.

With time and space to take a touch or clear his lines, Salisu chose none of the above, tangling his own legs as he comedically sent the ball trickling over the goal line.

Spurs capitalised upon the disruption amid Southampton’s ranks as Emerson and Kulusevski dovetailed down the right, wreaking havoc in the space behind Djenepo, a natural forward at left wingback.

Kulusevski cut onto his feared left foot to curl in Tottenham’s fourth of the afternoon within two minutes of their third.
