Because Manchester City played in the cup this weekend, the Reds now find themselves on top of the Premier League by two points.

"We conceded a goal, which is never good, but to be able to bounce back and show our character was good for us".

The two north-west clubs go into the global break just two points apart at the summit of the table and it is fair to say that both sides are putting together season's that belong in the record books.

Liverpool have been emphatic this season as their manager has successfully plugged all the holes that stopped the Reds from winning the Champions League last season. We go for perfection but it is rare that you get it. People will say we need to be more convincing, but we are at the start of a development, not the end.

Mane shaved the crossbar with a glancing header before a calamitous Van Dijk error gifted Fulham a 74th-minute equaliser, as his poor header back to keeper Alisson Becker was intercepted by former Liverpool winger Babel.

Kyle Kuzma , the Lakers' second-leading scorer with 18.8 points per game, also has missed two games with a sprained ankle. James was Bosh's longtime teammate in Miami. "Why me? You know, how do you tackle this?" Let's take a step back.

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.

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 Jurgen Klopp's men a much-needed gift when goalkeeper Sergio Rico bundled over Mane and Milner secured all three points from the spot.

The loss was Fulham's seventh in a row, which is a club record in the Premier League, and it appears only a matter of time until their Championship return is confirmed.

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.

James Milner's penalty nine minutes from time saw the visitors leapfrog Manchester City to return to the summit before the global break and maintained Liverpool's recent record of summoning wins after exertions in the Champions League.
