FULHAM have made a flying start on their return to the Premier League with Aleksandar Mitrovic earning them a shock draw against Liverpool.

With less than 15 minutes to play in the first half, The Cottagers broke forward as Liverpool's defence scrambled to get back into position.

Neeskens Kebano received the ball on the right before playing it through to right-back Kenny Tete, who made an overlapping run before sending a fantastic cross towards the back post.

Reds defender Trent Alexander-Arnold was in position to clear it, but Mitrovic – who scored a record-breaking total of 43 Championship goals last season – came out of nowhere to beat him to the ball and head it into the back of the net.

Liverpool came back to draw 2-2 in a thrilling finish, but fans were furious with the 23-year-old's error, and some took to social media to share their outrage.

One wrote: "Aleksandar Mitrovic BULLIED Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Another added: "I’m not a Liverpool fan but if I was I’d be screaming for Trent Alexander-Arnold to be subbed off at half-time."

A third said: "Trent Alexander-Arnold really needs to be converted into a midfielder. He just struggles to much at 1v1 defending."

While some criticised Alexander-Arnold for his defending, many were quick to praise Mitrovic for the fantastic finish.

One said: "Mitrovic bossing Liverpool all day long."
