Martin Skrtel's own goal earned Fulham their first top-flight win at Anfield as Liverpool warmed-up for the FA Cup final in the worst possible fashion, reports the BBC.

In a much-changed side, Liverpool were flat throughout and went behind when Skrtel turned in following John Arne Riise's cross after five minutes.

Andy Carroll's header was saved and Brede Hangeland cleared off the line.

But Kerim Frei hit the post and Clint Dempsey should have scored only to be denied by Alexander Doni.

In a flat game, Liverpool failed to continue the momentum gained by a 3-0 victory at Norwich last Saturday.

And the defeat continued a poor run which means Kenny Dalglish's side have only won three Premier League games in their last 13.

Liverpool have only won five league games at Anfield this season while Fulham, who recovered from a 4-0 defeat by Everton last weekend, move level with their hosts on 49 points.

Meanwhile, Cameron Jerome came off the bench to earn Stoke a point at the Britannia Stadium.

Former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch's own goal put Everton in front just before half-time.

Other than Rory Delap's long throws Stoke struggled to create decent chances until Jerome was brought on in a treble substitution midway through the second period.

Moments later the striker burst clear to finish from just inside the area.
