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

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

Sadio Mane gave the visitors a first half lead but ex-Liverpool forward Ryan Babel took advantage of a mix-up between Virgil van Dijk and Alisson to equalise for Fulham before James Milner's 80th-minute penalty earned Klopp's men all three points.

The Senegal forward made it 11 goals in his last 11 games by converting a cut-back from Roberto Firmino in the 26th minute at Craven Cottage.

Jürgen Klopp praised his players' reaction to shipping an unlikely equaliser at Fulham and welcomed a "sensational result" as Liverpool rallied late to move two points clear at the top of the Premier League.

City travel to Fulham - who are 13 points away from safety - after the global break on March 30 and Klopp thinks that if they can add an end product to their passing game they could make it hard for the reigning champions.

Salah should have got a much-needed confidence boost when released clean through by Mane during the second half, but Rico saved low to his left. But you need to stay in the game against Liverpool.

And the Cottagers thought they'd levelled on 65 minutes when Aleksandar Mitrovic diverted Zambo Anguissa's effort past Alisson, but the Serbia global was flagged offside.

European Union leaders urge clarity from Britain before Brexit delay
However, as things stand, the law has not been changed, as Wednesday and Thursday's votes were not legally binding. Campaigners for a new referendum are divided over whether the time is right to push for a second Brexit vote.

Despite Van Dijk's error against Fulham, Mike Walters believes Klopp's men still have the best defensive records in all four divisions.

They had given as good as they got in the opening 25 minutes, with Jean Seri curling over from a good position and Babel industrious in his determination to produce against his former club.

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.

Not that it mattered anyway: just as viewers were getting anxious about Fulham showing some competency, they stuffed it up and gave away a daft late penalty that James Milner converted for a nervy Liverpool win in west London.

"I am not in any doubt about my players' nerves".
