A late Mohamed Salah penalty saved Liverpool from a shock defeat to Fulham.

Bobby Reid's first-half goal looked set to earn the hosts a famous win at Craven Cottage, until the Egyptian earned a share of the spoils.

So who were the best and worst performers from both sides?

✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCE

Jordan Henderson: 7.8

The Englishman is one of the most unsung players in football and he produced another generous performance versus the club he almost signed for earlier in his career.

He had more touches than any other player on the pitch and also made the most recoveries, in addition to having a shot on target.

BAD PERFORMANCE

Ruben Loftus-Cheek: 5.6

Loftus-Cheek has struggled to return to his best form since suffering a serious injury two years ago, and he has not made too much of an impact on loan at Fulham from Chelsea thus far.

He has only one goal and no assists this campaign, and again made no offensive impact against Liverpool. He completed just the one dribble and had just one touch inside the box before being taken off on 74 minutes.

STAR MAN

Fabinho: 7.9

The Brazilian filled in admirably in the centre of defence once again, despite almost conceding a penalty early in the game.

He won all three of his tackles, seven of his 10 duels and made five clearances to ensure that Liverpool didn't miss the injured Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez too much.
