Liverpool and Fulham both won the first legs of their Europa League last-32 clashes.

Reds’ striker David Ngog’s goal nine minutes from time eventually broke the resistance of a determined Unirea Urziceni at Anfield in the Europa League.

The 1-0 win gives Liverpool some breathing space as they head to Bucharest for next week’s last-32 second leg.

Fulham striker Bobby Zamora struck a brilliant winner to round off a miserable trip to London for Europa League champions Shakhtar Donetsk.

Just two days after the squad was denied entrance into Harrods – owned by Cottagers chairman Mohamed Al Fayed – for looking scruffy, Shakhtar lost a match they looked destined to win comfortably.

Zoltan Gera fired the opener after just two minutes. Luiz Adriano pounced for the equaliser and a second seemed imminent as the Ukrainians dominated, but Fulham survived and Zamora struck the decisive blow in the 63rd minute, unleashing a thunderous 20-yard shot that rattled the crossbar and crashed home.
