The Reds, as things stand, are top of the league.

There will be three additional (and thoroughly unnecessary) minutes in this contest.
Liverpool win a corner. Alexander-Arnold's effort doesn't make it past the first man.

Liverpool counter in numbers and the ball falls to Robertson, who is breaking into the box on the right. Rico saves his attempt at a placement.

- Yellow cardCalum ChambersFulham
Chambers sees yellow for a foul on Salah. A free kick around 30 yards from goal is being lined up.
Liverpool have now had 76.4% of possession. Fulham had sone semblance of control before the opening goal, but that is slowly slipping away.
- GoalXherdan ShaqiriLiverpool
A beautiful volleyed finish from Shaqiri! Robertson sends a cross into the box from a deep position and the Swiss has plenty of space to send his first-time effort into the net from around eight yards!
Shaqairi picks out Mane around 25 yards from goal. His powerful shot is tipped over the bar for a corner!
Salah aims for the far post with the free kick, but it sails off target.
Shaqiri wins a free kick from a challenge from Chambers near the edge of the box.
THE SECOND HALF BEGINS!
Firmino takes the first touch as the Reds look to make more of an impact in the Anfield sunshine. Fulham, meanwhile, will be bouyed by the way they frustrated the hosts in the opening half.
Replays suggest Mitrovic's goal was actually onside.
That's a cruel blow for Fulham, who have put in one of their best performances of the season.
Liverpool will go into the break frustrated that they haven't made more of an impact on this game.
Just 13 seconds separated Fulham's offside goal and Salah's onside one.
Cairney feeds Mitrovic in the box and his shot is smothered by Alisson!
There was a matter of a few seconds between the offside decision and Liverpool's goal. A furious counter attack!
- GoalMohamed SalahLiverpool
Liverpool immediately break from the offside decision, with Salah charging down the right to slot low past Sergio Rico!
THE BALL IS IN THE NET!
Mitrovic heads in a Schurrle cross and the flag goes up but....
Fabinho is called up for a foul on Anguissa. Schurrle finds the ball on the right and sees his cross headed out for a corner by Van Dijk.
Robertson plays the ball to Mane in the box, who cuts a cross back across goal. It falls to Shaqiri on the edge of the area, but his shot is dragged wide.
Sessegnon breaks into the box and has a wayward shot into the Kop.
The travelling Fulham fans should be happy with the performance so far. They could easily be ahead.
Chambers concedes a free kick to Fabinho on the edge of the box, around 25 yards out. Shaqiri blasts it into the wall.
Salah uses his pace to blast down the right flank and works his way into the box. The Egyptian goes down under a challenge from Christie just inside the box, but the ref waves it off. It looks like the right call.
Schurrle is given time on the edge of the box to unleash a shot, which Alisson parries into traffic. Van Dijk comes to the rescue, but that was another warning sign for the Reds.
Mitrovic heads a goal kick into Sessegnon's path and he is through on goal! However, Sessegnon's shot is blasted wide. That should have been 1-0 to the visitors.
With a quarter of the game gone, Fulham are in it with a clean sheet. They are giving away plenty of space to Shaqiri and Alexander-Arnold, but all things considered, this is not a bad start from the Londoners.
Oh. Instead of the corner, play restarts with a free kick to Fulham.
Liverpool win their first corner as Sergio Rico deflects a fierce Salah shot from the right!
After some patient build-up play, Fabinho lifts the ball into the area, where Alexander-Arnold heads just over the bar!
Sessegnon might have done better to track the run, but that was another nicely worked move.
Firmino and Salah pull off a wonderful interchange which puts the latter clear through on goal, but the ball is smothered by Sergio Rico. That would have been a beautifully worked goal!
Shaqiri picks up the ball 25 yards out and unleashes a shot. It flies wide and the Alpine Messi wants a corner, but it isn't given.
Klopp's concerns about lunchtime kick-offs appear to be valid: it's very quiet at Anfield so far.
Schurrle delivers a corner which is swatted away by the first man Robertson. A poor quality set piece.
Alexander-Arnold has a lot of space to operate on the right flank. He tries to latch on to a ball from Shaqiri but is frustrated when it runs too long.
Shaqiri picks out Alexander-Arnold's run into the box but the England youngster puts his cross over the bar.
Alexander-Arnold pumps the ball in from the right. Firmino lays it off to Mane, who drags his shot wide!
Fulham have started brightly, with Schurrle and Mitorvic combinging well on the left flank. The visitors appear to be line dup in a 4-2-3-1, much like the hosts.
After an impeccably respected silence, referee Paul Tierney blows his whistle and Mitrovic takes the first touch.
Anfield is observing a minute of silence.
The players are taking to the pitch at Anfield, where it is currently 10C with plenty of sunshine.
Kick-off is moments away!
Fulham have taken just one point from their last 18 league games against the Big Six. They are just one of three English league teams who have yet to keep a clean sheet this season (along with Macclesfield and Sheffield Wednesday).
Fulham have yet to play the same defensive line in consecutive games this season. They have conceded 29 goals so far - no Premier League team has ever conceded more after 11 games.
“We are bottom of the table and we need some kind of reaction," says Jokanovic. "I won’t tell you our formation but we want to be more solid while still playing our football."
Regardless of Klopp's attitude to early start times, he has led Liverpool to victory in all eight league home games against promoted sides he has faced. The Reds will be looking to extend their unbeaten home streak to 27 league games today.
Jurgen Klopp is not a big fan of lunchtime games: "I would be lying if I said 12 midday is my favourite time to kick-off in a competitive football match. I would be more truthful if I said I didn’t like it at all. But it is what it is, and all of us must now make the best of it.”
Jokanovic: "In the last game we chose a really ugly way to lose. You must fight until the last moment, you must give extra effort. We didn't show the effort and we must now wake up.
"My mentality is always the same. I want to find brave people around me. We must move out of our comfort zone, push harder and be more competitive."
It's a very attacking Liverpool starting XI against a very defensive Fulham one. Liverpool appear to be playing a 4-2-3-1, with Shaqiri playing wide and Fabinho and Wijnaldum pivoting in front of the back line.
The Reds have scored 14 goals in their last four encounters with the Cottagers.
Liverpool will look to continue their undefeated Premier League streak with the visit of a rock-bottom Fulham side who have lost their last six outings.
The Cottagers have won only once in 54 league visits to Anfield: a 1-0 win in May 2012 courtesy of a Martin Skrtel own goal.
