Players Getting Tired, We Need Injured Stars Back - Former Liverpool Midfielder

Liverpool's James Milner celebrates scoring his side's second goal

A below-par Liverpool had gone ahead through Sadio Mane's first-half strike, but a poor error from Virgil Van Dijk was capitalised on by former winger Ryan Babel to level for Fulham in the 74th minute.

Fulham look destined for relegation this season as they are in 19th place on the standings and 13 points adrift of safety.

Mohamed Salah's goal drought continued as the Egyptian has scored just once now in his last 10 games, but it was his shot that Rico spilled before the Spaniard unnecessarily pulled down Mane.

Mane scored his ninth league goal in as many games when he fired the visitors into a 26th-minute lead with a classy finish which typified Liverpool's attacking mentality under Klopp.

And speaking after the game, Fulham boss lauded the performance from Liverpool and claimed that the Jurgen Klopp led side is now the best counter-attacking side in Europe.

"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".

"I have no doubt about my players' nerves. We go for perfection but it is rare that you get it". How the boys dealt with it was brilliant.

"Average game, sensational result", said Klopp of his side's performance.

Then it was James Milner penalty which saved the day for Liverpool and the Anfield outfit picked up a very important win at Craven Cottage. "That's our job to do".

"Maybe a few years ago we might only have won one of those games". Second half we were a bit clearer, had better chances, so that's...

Still only 24, Sterling has been the key player for the Man City squad this term with 15 goals and nine assists to his name in the Premier League alone, no player has been involved in more goals this season. The goal was what we deserved. "It's trying to embrace it, soak it all up and hopefully we'll be successful at the end of the season".
