Liverpool chose to stroll through the final 20 minutes as their unbeaten top-flight run at Anfield was extended to 27 games with a victory which will keep them top heading into the worldwide break, if rivals Manchester United can do them a favour against City later today.

It means the champions are top of the table by two points from Jurgen Klopp's team, with a goal difference already 13 superior, heading into the global break.

'They are the champions and the best team in the league but we will try everything to be as good as we can, ' said the Holland captain.

The attacking midfielder has settled into the Liverpool squad well and has quickly become a fan favourite. With Joe we are not sure, we are in talks about that. "It is completely absurd situation that we needed to defend".

"At the beginning we moved the ball too slowly, so it is easy for the opposition to defend and impossible for us to be risky", bemoaned Sarri.

Liverpool are targeting their first league title since 1990 and while Torres wants both of his former sides to lift the trophy, he has revealed he'd prefer Jurgen Klopp's side to win it this season.

"You can not change it, the most important thing is reacting that quick in that situation and it was brilliant: Alisson, Trent, Mo and done". He has been doing well and we are very happy to have him.

"So far, Fulham have always had a football-playing idea and today you saw it - after winning the second ball they were on their toes, they played football but with a lot of long build-up, a lot of long situations and Mitrovic did outstandingly well in these situations". We can not change it, Fulham can not change it.

Fulham switched off and within 20 seconds and two passes, Liverpool had raced up the other end to score as Alisson played the ball out to Alexander-Arnold, who released Salah to dart clear of Denis Odoi and slot through the legs of Rico on 41 minutes.

"It was the first time in the season I think that they played like this, with four or five centre-halves".

"Most of the players only have one game: England and Brazil have two games, which is not too good, especially with the latest game on Tuesday night so it is good Brazil are in England and not elsewhere, so the travel stress will not be too much".

Indeed a rare mistake from Joe Gomez presented Fulham with the game's best chance midway through the half. Hendo is 100 percent fit and needs games as well.
