Fulham 1-3 Liverpool: Diogo Jota back with a bang as Reds keep up with Arsenal in Premier League title race

Fulham 1-3 Liverpool: Diogo Jota back with a bang as Reds keep up with Arsenal in Premier League title race.

Liverpool brushed off their European disappointment to move up to second in the Premier League level on points with table-topping Arsenal – after a 3-1 win against Fulham at Craven Cottage. Jurgen Klopp’s men bounced back from Thursday’s exit to Atalanta in the Europa League and last week’s home defeat to Crystal Palace as they continued their pursuit of Premier League glory.

Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s superb free-kick sent the Merseysiders on their way (32), but Timothy Castagne hauled Marco Silva’s side level on the stroke of half-time (45+2).

Last Sunday’s surprise home loss to Palace had handed the initiative to Manchester City, and while Mikel Arteta’s Gunners side moved top with victory over Wolves on Saturday, Liverpool kept up the pace with a dominant second-half display.

Ryan Gravenberch restored the visitors’ advantage when he collected Harvey Elliott’s pass to curl a sublime finish past Bernd Leno and in off the post (53).

With Alisson a spectator after the interval, Liverpool turned the screw as Diogo Jota put the contest to bed with a third, racing onto Cody Gakpo’s pass to fire low into the bottom right-hand corner.

The result means Liverpool move onto 74 points, along with Arsenal, but in second place by virtue of an inferior goal difference. City sit third on 73 points but having played a game less. Meanwhile, Fulham remain in 12th position on 42 points.
