To add insult to injury, Liverpool quickly responded with a rapid break up the pitch and some poor Fulham defending helped Salah go clean through and he coolly slotted the ball into the back of the net to give Liverpool the lead.
Manchester City are now flying high at the top of the Premier League table but they're not the only unbeaten team in England's top division this season.
Liverpool have won all nine home Premier League games under Jurgen Klopp against newly-promoted teams, scoring 27 goals and conceding just three.
Fulham were still well in the game after a solid first half but Liverpool wrapped-up the three points less than 10 minutes in to the second period when Shaqiri fired home a stunning volley to make it 2-0 from a wonderful Andrew Robertson pass. "It's hard to tell", Klopp said.
Even Liverpool fans can agree the league needs VAR: the Reds saw Sadio Mane's legitimate goal called incorrectly offsides against Arsenal last week, a decision that would have been overruled by the review system. It was hard to see for the ref, but it was a clear foul on Robbo [Andrew Robertson] because Robbo is the second free man to go there and avoid the cross - and he couldn't. "The reaction was brilliant". I'm not sure which Fulham player kept him.

"In the end we were a bit lucky and maybe because of Robbo it is not 100 percent offside because of his heel". But before that somebody had held him.
Although Fulham look like a very poor team at the moment, there are six others of a similarly low standard at the bottom of the table - so you can not write any of them off'. "We had to work hard", he said. Probably yes. It was a crucial moment and we went from being one goal up to one goal down.
Fulham have now conceded two or more goals for the 10th time in 12 matches this season, and almost had to pick the ball out of the back of the net again when Roberto Firmino found Robertson on the counter, but Rico was on hand to keep the score at 2-0.
"Joe had all the games".
"It was the first time in the season I think that they played like this, with four or five centre-halves".
