Reds return to the top of the league as late James Milner penalty seals narrow victory

James Milner scored a late penalty as Liverpool narrowly edged out Fulham to return to the top of the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp’s side took the lead after Sadio Mane coolly finished a brilliant reversed pass from Roberto Firmino.

Ryan Babel levelled for the Cottagers against his former club after a miscommunication between Virgil van Dijk and goalkeeper Alisson.

But substitute Milner made no mistake from the spot after Sergio Rico brought down Mane in the area and the Reds sealed a crucial three points.
