Scenes from Sunday’s Premier League match between Liverpool and Fulham that you might not have noticed. Liverpool’s thrilling victory over Fulham on Sunday helped them get their Premier League title challenge back on track.

The Reds won 3-1 thanks to goals from Ryan Gravenberch and Diogo Jota in the second half and an outstanding free-kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold. Due to the outcome, Jurgen Klopp’s team currently trails leaders Arsenal on goal differential, with one game remaining and Manchester City behind by one point.

But in the ninety minutes at Craven Cottage, a lot happened that was missed or overlooked.

The prophet Van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk is one of the best center-backs in the world, and his style of play is all on seeing danger coming. However, the captain of Liverpool has also long been known for his ability to see what’s going on across the pitch.

On occasion, Van Dijk may be seen celebrating a goal in back play while the Reds are on the attack before it has even hit the back of the net.

However, considering that he was celebrating Gravenberch’s goal before his countrymate had even lined up the shot, even the Dutchman’s prophetic ability was exerting extra effort. Virg, any chance you know this week’s lottery numbers?

Mourinho’s firm no

The sighting of Jose Mourinho at Craven Cottage raised a lot of curiosity, not least because the Portuguese manager is now unemployed after being fired by Roma earlier this year.

Even though Mourinho is a local and was merely watching a Premier League game, he was immediately connected to the soon-to-be open position of Reds manager.

However, Liverpool fans’ response on social media indicates that they would much rather see the former Manchester United and Chelsea player stay in the seats than accept a position in the Reds’ dugout. Jose, no way.

Harvey class

Even though Harvey Elliott left Fulham nearly five years ago at the age of sixteen, the boo boys still pick him apart everytime he goes back to his old team.

Once more, several home fans were taunting Elliott with jeers at every move, albeit the one who assisted Gravenberch’s goal eventually managed to quiet them.

However, Elliott demonstrated that there were no ill will by thanking the Fulham supporters and giving his shirt to a local following the game. A sophisticated move.

unified dissatisfaction

Even supporters of Liverpool would readily concede that Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final between Manchester United and Championship team Coventry City was hardly the most memorable match in London’s history.

And when Coventry scored in the final minute of extra time, the away end couldn’t help but sing a song that brought back memories of what they believe to be Manchester’s core values until the heartbreaking VAR disqualified the goal.

As Alexander-Arnold celebrated their opening goal, Andy Robertson was inadvertently hurt when substitute Curtis Jones jabbed him in the eye. The left-back then joked, “I still can’t see,” when sharing an image of himself and his teammate after the game.
