Even a day after it happened, I’m still stunned by this result. I didn’t keep up with the game and only saw the Match of the Day highlights, so it wasn’t until nearly 11pm that I knew the result.
Liverpool have had a bad run form lately, and this will be part of a sequence of seven games in which they’ve lost six (even if the other game was a 2-0 win against Man Utd). In contrast, Fulham now haven’t lost in six games. The Reds had two players sent off, but both came after Fulham were 2-1 up, and neither looked to be particularly bad decisions (Liverpool are appealing against them both).
With Zamora scoring (making up for missing a sitter last week) and Dempsey coming back to the team in great style to make plenty of pay and score the last goal, the team should be buoyed up ready for the Roma game on Thursday. They’ll be missing Damien Duff, who took a knock and came off at half time, but Gera came on to replace him and was involved in the second Fulham goal (scored by Nevland), so hopefully the Whites can put out a strong challenge in the Italian capital.
