LONDON (AP) — New Liverpool signing Darwin Nunez came off the bench to score one goal and set up another as the Reds salvaged a 2-2 draw at promoted Fulham in the opening round of the Premier League. Aleksandar Mitrovic put Fulham ahead twice as Marco Silva’s team threatened an upset. But Nunez first met a low cross from Mohamed Salah with a backheel flick into the top of the net to make it 1-1 in the 64th minute, and then helped his Egyptian teammate net the second equalizer in the 81st. Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson came close to an injury-time winner when his curling long-distance shot hit the crossbar.
