There is no doubt who is Liverpool’s main man right now and how they needed Sadio Mane. He scored his 11th goal in 11 games - which is impressive enough but, crucially, the forward was also razor-sharp to earn the penalty that James Milner converted to send them back to the top of the Premier League.

How the angst would have enveloped them had they gone into the international break having not established a two-point advantage over Manchester City. In the first-half they seemed so in control, so superior to Fulham and yet their performance deteriorated, became sloppy and they made extremely hard work of this, relying on the penalty.

That has to be worrying even if the assessment of manager Jurgen Klopp could also be seen as a sign of encouragement when he said they did not “panic” and “did not show the nerves you are all waiting for”.
