Liverpool required an 81st-minute penalty from James Milner to secure a 2-1 win at relegation-threatened Fulham and return to the top of the Premier League today.

Alexander-Arnold added: 'At the business end of the season, three points, especially on days like that when you get tested, concede a goal, which is never good, to be able to bounce back and show our character was good for us.

The two north-west clubs go into the worldwide break just two points apart at the summit of the table and it is fair to say that both sides are putting together season's that belong in the record books.

The Merseyside outfit have played a game more than Manchester City, who will return to Premier League action after the worldwide break with a trip to Fulham on 30 March. It's a bit cliched, but that's the main thing for us.

"You don't get to say that many times in your career". Liverpool came again, with Sadio Mane winning the crucial penalty that allowed James Milner to score the victor.

But in another goalkeeping error, Fulham's Sergio Rico only parried Mohamed Salah's weak shot then dragged down Sadio Mane - the scorer of Liverpool's opening goal - to the ground.
