Uruguayan player Darwin Nunez came off the bench to score one and create another for Liverpool in their 2-all draw against newly promoted Fulham in the Premier League this morning.

Liverpool was forced to battle back twice to salvage a point in a chaotic game according to the BBC.

The Reds, who pushed champions Manchester City all the way in the title race last season, fell behind when Aleksandar Mitrovic got the better of Trent Alexander-Arnold to head Fulham ahead after meeting a superb cross by Kenny Tete.
