Liverpool back atop Premier League with 2-1 win at Fulham

The defeat for Fulham was their third in succession since caretaker manager Scott Parker took charge, leaving the club 13 points adrift of safety and staring at near-certain relegation back to the Championship a year after they were promoted via the play-offs.

However, Fulham's equaliser did arrive on 74 minutes following a mix-up between Virgil van Dijk and Alisson which allowed Babel to tap into an empty net. A brilliant afternoon I have to say.

And, yes, it leaves Liverpool two points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Andy Robertson feels Liverpool head into the global break on the back of "a massive week" as they remain in the hunt for a Champions League and Premier League double.

It is hard to see them getting points from this game unless Liverpool get the basics wrong.

"First half we dominated them and even the second half we were very much in control until probably the unexpected mistake".

Most of the visitors' attacking threat came down their left side through Mane and the Senegalese proved the source of the breakthrough on 26 minutes. We were in a position then to get the right side of it.

"I think the club has lost a little bit of what we had last season". "I still support them as a fan so of course I showed them respect".

Mohamed Salah's tame effort was spilled by Fulham goalkeeper Sergio Rico, who went on to pull the oncoming Mane down to the ground, resulting in referee Craig Pawson pointing to the penalty spot.

Brazil's Richarlison headed Marco Silva's side in front from close range in the 49th minute after Kepa Arrizabalaga had kept out striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin's powerful header from Sigurdsson's corner.

The Argentine has 28 goals in all competitions this season including a 93rd minute victor in the FA Cup quarter finals against Swansea City.
