Liverpool's Klopp: No concern over players' nerves after Fulham win

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

They required a late James Milner penalty to secure all three points at Craven Cottage but Jurgen Klopp insisted afterwards that his side's nerve is "not in doubt".

Toward the end of the game, a litany of errors led to Fulham's equaliser, with ex-Red Ryan Babel knocking home after a mix-up involving Virgil van Dijk and Alisson.

Do you think Liverpool will go on and win the Premier League this season?

"I have enough confidence to say I am the right manager for Liverpool at the moment, though in football we all constantly have to prove ourselves".

"The first half, we dominated them and even in the second half we were very much in control up until the unexpected mistake".

Fulham's terrible defending all season is the reason they are heading back to the Championship after just one season back in the top flight, and the hosts gave Juergen Klopp's men a much-needed gift when goalkeeper Sergio Rico bundled over Mane and Milner secured all three points from the spot.

"I saw the reaction of my players and I'm really pleased with that", added Klopp. It is about intensity. Obviously beating Burnley at home was hard, as they are in a similar position to what Fulham are in, and we fell behind there.

Liverpool have 76 points from 31 games, two more than champions Manchester City who have a game in hand.

Steyer's op-ed pushed back on Pelosi's claim that a move to impeach would not have Republican support. Kayleigh McEnany, national press secretary for the Trump campaign, said in a statement.

But they almost suffered a very costly European hangover against a Fulham side still 13 points adrift of safety.

Former Liverpool FC defender Carragher described Mane as the best player in Europe on current form after his victor at Craven Cottage.

The Senegal forward exchanged a blistering one-two with Roberto Firmino before he buried his shot from seven metres past Fulham keeper Sergio Rico, who then denied Andy Robertson and Van Dijk either side of halftime.

Liverpool were caught out and without Salah's help, Fulham's chances of equalising would have been greatly higher.

The Dutchman beat Alisson to the ball and refrained from celebrating against his former club after stroking the ball into an empty net. Porto should not be underestimated - Klopp makes it his business to ensure his players do not underestimate anyone - but they appear the least unsafe opponents and Liverpool won 5-0 at the Estádio do Dragão en route to last season's final.

Another howler, this time by Rico, decided the contest as the keeper spilled a tame Mohamed Salah shot and then hauled down Mane who pounced on the rebound, leaving Milner to stroke home the victor from the spot.

Defeat for sixth-placed Chelsea left them with 57 points from 30 matches, a point behind Manchester United above them and three points behind Arsenal in fourth.
