Liverpool 2-1 Fulham player ratings: Lallana dynamic and Alexander-Arnold menaced

Fulham team news: key forward back in training after recording from illness

But you need to stay in the game against Liverpool.

Nevertheless, we move on to the player ratings - as compiled from reports from the Independent, the Express, the Mirror and the Echo.

The Cottagers will go into this game as the firm underdogs against Jurgen Klopp's side who will be fired up, knowing that a win will take them to the top of the standings.

"If as a manager you finish second a bunch of times, reach Champions League finals without winning them and miss out on the League Cup or FA Cup, then you can not be seen as a great". Mane was the man again, central to both Liverpool goals, but this was a performance that required a late collective effort which no one would have thought necessary after a stroll of a first half at Craven Cottage.

Liverpool FC were 3-1 winners against Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday night after Sadio Mane scored twice to help seal their place in the last eight.

However, as a torrential rain shower swept over the banks of the Thames to make playing conditions hazardous, Liverpool's slender lead proved a unsafe one.

The recorders, also known as black boxes, were sent to France because the BEA has extensive expertise in analyzing such devices. The investigations into both 737 Max crashes are underway, and expected to focus on the automated controls.

Disaster seemed to have struck for Liverpool when Van Dijk's header back towards Alisson didn't have enough purchase and Babel stepped in with the break of the ball to tap into an empty net.

"Yeah, Ryan was trying to be clever I think when he said that", Van Dijk told BeIN Sports.

It was his 17th Premier League goal, putting Mane level with Salah and only one behind Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero. "After the equaliser we were much clearer than before the equaliser".

It was Mane's seventh goal in the last five games and that run has been well timed considering Mohamed Salah's now seven-game drought.

But like Alisson before him, Rico erred and Milner drove a redemptive spot-kick down the middle of the goal.
