Liverpool spank Fulham to stay on course in title race

After a tough week, that saw Liverpool eliminated from the Europa League, Jurgen Klopp's men needed a win against Fulham to bounce back.

They nearly scored early on, but Luis Díaz's header sent a fine header just past the post.

Trent Alexander-Arnold broke the deadlock with a brilliant free-kick and both teams had chances in the first half, and the hosts leveled proceedings just before the break.

Timothy Castagne took advantage of a bouncing ball in the box and fired past Alisson to send the home fans into ecstacy.

In the second half, Ryan Gravenberch put Liverpool ahead again with a well-taken goal. Diogo Jota added a third goal to seal the three points.
