Milner: Liverpool's play was 'mesmerising'

Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus celebrate Man City's 2-0 win over Everton

Salah should have doubled Liverpool's lead when Wijnaldum unselfishly squared when played clean through by Roberto Firmino on a rapid counter-attack, but the Egyptian miscontrolled and allowed the Bournemouth defence to regroup.

The weekend kicks off at Craven Cottage, with second from bottom Fulham hosting Manchester United.

By contrast, United were 11 points adrift of the top four when Jose Mourinho was sacked as their manager in December.

"We want to be there until the end". They then return to league action, travelling to Old Trafford to face Manchester United next Sunday. Getting Kevin de Bruyne back healthy has been key for a team that many now consider the favorite to win the league due to the form over the last two games and Liverpool's failure to earn points it was expected to.

No player has made more passes in the Premier League this season than Jorginho (who has 2,219), but Sarri is aware his side will find it hard to keep the ball at the Etihad Stadium.

"You can not go around it, you have to go through".

56' - MANE HEADER - Mane rises at the back post to meet Wijnaldum's cross, and he sends a header back across goal, just a couple of yards wide.

It would be shortsighted to make a judgement on Keita after little over half a season at Liverpool and his true quality came to the surface during the Bournemouth game. It's a good sign, even though we have to carry on to stay there.

"In the first match, we were lucky to score. Ole is himself. He's not acting and he's given joy and confidence to everyone", Pogba said. "He's taken a wee bit of time to settle in, but today was probably his best performance in a Liverpool shirt", he explained after the game. You can see on the pitch the effect (of him). We need to be very fast when we're recovering the ball.

"VAR will help us in those situations and I think that will benefit everybody", he said. Everyone forgets how young Naby is, he's only a young boy and he's already a fantastic player.

As far as this game is concerned, I am going to pick Liverpool to win this game.

"We want to keep moving forward and hang onto this fourth place".

I want him [De Bruyne] to play as much as possible.

For Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri, it was yet another frustrating day at the office. "We set up to try to frustrate them, to restrict the space and it worked quite well in the opening period". That is what I like about it. People say we underestimated Newcastle, or opponents in Europe, or whatever, but I say we are in the Carabao Cup final and still fighting in all the competitions. Sarri will be hoping for more of the same as we enter the business end of the season.
