Fulham 1-2 Liverpool - What the media and statistics say

Collymore says Klopp will only be seen as a great if he brings trophies to Anfield Liverpool retake EPL lead | Sports

The Netherlands defender has backed his Reds teammate to start scoring again soon.

Now, it's time that glowing adulation of van Dijk is eased a little and the praise is aimed exclusively at Mane, who has been the one reason that Liverpool remain in with a chance of claiming Premier League glory, and the African sensation can be the player to try and launch them to league success.

However, Fulham's equaliser did arrive on 74 minutes following a mix-up between Virgil van Dijk and Alisson which allowed Babel to tap into an empty net.

Liverpool's current No.10 took his tally to 20 goals for the campaign so far during Sunday's 2-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage, with 17 of them coming in the Premier League putting him level with Mohamed Salah in the top scorer charts, one behind leader Sergio Aguero.

The Egyptian is now on a seven-game goalless run and has looked bereft of confidence in front of goal in recent weeks.

With Manchester City not in action this weekend due to their FA Cup involvement, Liverpool knew a victory would see them return to the summit, and Sadio Mane kept up his impressive recent scoring record with his fifth goal in the past three matches.

Van Dijk is now away on worldwide duty with the Netherlands and he says he wanted his compatriot Ryan Babel to score for the Cottagers in order to give him a confidence boost for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers.

"People can say all they want but I think all the teams in the Premier League would love to have him in their side".

"Sadio has now got himself into a situation in which he's got an outside chance of getting it - although I don't think it's got anything to do with me telling him!"

"The goals will come".

"He's still scored plenty of goals for us, to be fair, so it's not like two like me! It is like this".
