'I didn't see any panic' - Liverpool composure impresses Klopp

'I didn't see any panic' - Liverpool composure impresses Klopp

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.

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.

Jurgen Klopp's side couldn't have afforded to drop any more points in this title race against Manchester City - and they relied on a late James Milner penalty to get past Fulham.

Fulham's terrible defending all season is the reason they are heading back to the Championship after just one season back in the top flight, and the hosts gave Juergen Klopp's men a much-needed gift when goalkeeper Sergio Rico bundled over Mane and Milner secured all three points from the spot.

"Football is sometimes like this", he told a media conference.

"I have seen some massive positives". That doesn't say we are sensational. I was sure we would not panic and show the nerves you are all waiting for us to show.

Beto O'Rourke Nabs First Congressional Endorsement from Kathleen Rice
Telling the diners that this is his first visit to Iowa, O'Rourke told them that he wanted to hear what's on their minds. But that's not the case with Beto O'Rourke, the former Texas congressman who threw his hat in the ring late Wednesday .

"Maybe a few years ago we might only have won one of those games".

"We had a very intense week going to Munich and coming back, travelling to London".

Liverpool moved two points in front of Manchester City, who were in FA Cup action this weekend, while second-bottom Fulham are marooned 13 points from safety after a seventh consecutive loss. We changed things around a little bit and were in the ascendancy. "That's always a different game".

Don Balon claims that Messi has identified Mane as a player who could increase Barcelona's pace in attack as they look for an alternative to the misfiring Philippe Coutinho.

"Now reflecting on it we're really disappointed in the result".

"We had to run a lot in a week where we ran a lot", added Klopp to justify an at times lacklustre display at such a pivotal stage of the season. That's how they got promoted.
