James Milner rescues Liverpool after rare Virgil van Dijk and Alisson blunder

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

There was a little movement in mid-table thanks to wins for the Hammers, Everton and Leicester on a weekend where Wolves and Watford were triumphing in the FA Cup, meaning those five teams are separated by just four points and lined up neatly like a Saturday morning bank queue.

Ahead of the worldwide break, Liverpool moved above Manchester City to the top of the table after a late 2-1 win against Fulham on Saturday.

The Reds were pinned back in the second-half by former player Ryan Babel after he capitalised on Virgil van Dijk and Alisson's mix-up.

It was his 17th Premier League goal, putting Mane level with Salah and only one behind Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero. Obviously beating Burnley at home was hard, as they are in a similar position to Fulham, and we fell behind there.

Fulham look destined for relegation this season as they are in 19th place on the standings and 13 points adrift of safety. "I don't think that matters", Molby said on LFC TV after the win at Fulham, when contrasting Liverpool and Manchester City's push for the title.

"I'm not the most experienced manager but I've had similar problems after Champions League games - the first-half was a bit rusty".

Liverpool now hold a two-point lead over City, but the champions have a game in hand.

Barcelona captain Lionel Messi reportedly urges the club's board to sign Sadio Mane from Liverpool after being impressed by his performance against Bayern Munich. 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.

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.

Fulham's recent results against Liverpool do not make for impressive reading.
