FULL TIME: Fulham 1 – 3 Liverpool

It took until the 53rd minute of their Premier League clash with Fulham at Craven Cottage for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to eventually pull away and clinch a very important victory in their pursuit of the title.

The Reds knew they had to beat the Cottagers in order to keep pace with their title-chasing rivals, and it was never going to be an easy encounter, but they found a way through.

Liverpool kept pace in the Premier League title race with a 3-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s sumptuous free-kick on 32 minutes opened the scoring, but the Reds were pegged back on the stroke of half-time as Cottagers right-back Timothy Castagne slotted home after the visitors could not get an Alex Iwobi cutback clear.

With Jurgen Klopp turning to his bench, where his big hitters – Mohamed Salah, Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Darwin Nunez – sat, it was Ryan Gravenberch who put Liverpool back in the driving seat with a curling effort on 54 minutes to restore their advantage.

Diogo Jota broke free down the left channel with 18 minutes remaining, and his low drive squirmed through Bernd Leno to make it three and secure the victory that keeps Klopp’s side in the hunt for the title.

The Reds are now up to second in the table, off the top only on goal difference, with themselves and table-toppers Arsenal even on 74 points.
