Sadio Mane sets new record with opening goal vs Fulham

Intro

Liverpool took on Fulham in the first Premier League game on Sunday.

The Reds headed into the game knowing a win would see them go temporarily top of the Premier League as Manchester City were in FA Cup action on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will have been full of confidence heading into the game after beating Bayern Munich 3-1 in Germany earlier in the week.

Fulham, on the other hand, were the most out of form Premier League side heading into the game.

They also have the worst defensive record of anyone in the top flight.

Mane sets a record

As was to be expected on Sunday, Liverpool started the first half the better of the two sides.
