“Massive win”, “Do it any way you can” – Liverpool fans react to dramatic 2-1 win at Fulham

Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League table after securing a dramatic 2-1 victory over Fulham on Sunday.

Fulham 1-2 Liverpool

Premier League, Craven Cottage
March 17, 2019

Goals: Babel 74′; Mane 26′, Milner pen 81′

Liverpool’s first visit to Craven Cottage since 2014 saw Jurgen Klopp‘s men get off to a slow start, only for the Reds’ man of the moment to inject a much-needed spark midway through the first half.

An exquisite one-two with Roberto Firmino saw Sadio Mane smash the ball into the back of the net to record his 11th goal in as many games.

The Reds controlled proceedings with ease for much of the opening 45, but their wastefulness in possession gave the home side a glimmer of hope.

And former Reds winger Ryan Babel was the man to capitalise on an inability to put the game beyond reach after taking advantage of a series of errors at the back.

But a late penalty converted by James Milner ensured the Reds left London with all three points and returned to the top of the Premier League table.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and on our forums.


Mane earned plenty of praise as he netted yet another goal…
