Football experts select Van Dijk over Sterling, Aguero as EPL's best player

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

In the top-four mini-league meanwhile, Chelsea's game-in-hand defeat to Everton means the Blues still trail rivals Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United; with eight games to go, just two points separate the quartet fighting for Champions League football in 2018/19.

With title rivals Man City playing in the FA Cup quarter-finals against Swansea City yesterday, Jurgen Klopp's men had the opportunity to go into the global break top of the Premier League with a win at Craven Cottage.

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.

Andy Robertson feels Liverpool head into the worldwide break on the back of "a massive week" as they remain in the hunt for a Champions League and Premier League double.

Liverpool were in complete control at the break, but Fulham woke up in the second half and began threatening - with Babel leading them on the counterattack.

Add to that three goals in the Champions League and you have perhaps the most important and best player in the Premier League given Sterling's age and potential for improvement still to come.

Fulham vs Liverpool highlights - Liverpool earned a valuable three points to go to the top of the Premier League table.

"I think there is a bigger picture and we have just got to build".

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. We were in a position then to get the right side of it.

Mane darted towards a backpedalling Timothy Fosu-Mensah and slotted a pass to Roberto Firmino, continuing his run to convert the Brazil forward's cutback from the byline.

But Fulham goalkeeper Sergio Rico handed Liverpool a lifeline when he dragged Mane down in the box with 10 minutes remaining - and Milner slammed home the penalty.
