UEFA to shake up Champions League? Klopp wants to stay at Liverpool

Liverpool have named their side and substitutes to go up against Scott Parker's Fulham side at Craven Cottage in a Premier League meeting this afternoon.

James Milner's penalty ensured that Liverpool took all three points and went back to the top of the Premier League, but van Dijk was still ruing his error.

Klopp was delighted with the outcome and his team's ability to grind out what could be a telling result in their bid to win their first league title since 1990.

Reflecting on Fulham's goal, van Dijk told Sky Sports: 'We won the game, mistakes happen it's football, obviously a couple of things happened and it is what it is but we go again'.

The Reds now sit two points clear of City, who have a game in hand, domestically and have a Champions League quarter-final against FC Porto on the horizon following their impressive victory over Bayern Munich in midweek.

"I think in the first half we could have maybe killed the game and scored a second goal and make it a little bit easier", he said.

However, if he manages to get points from this game, it will be a huge confidence boost for his side ahead of the final few games of the season.

"I am not in any doubt about my players' nerves". It is about intensity. "The goal, it's important I put it away and made up for that, but there's years of practice gone into my penalties and in the game you've just got to go back to what you've been practising, be calm and know what you're going to do". Fulham have 17 points and a mountain to climb if they are to avoid nearly certain relegation from the top flight.

Sadio Mane had given Liverpool the lead in the opening half-hour as he confidently slotted home from Roberto Firmino's reverse pass in to the box.

Andy Robertson was the provider as Georginio Wijnaldum headed a good opportunity over at the far post before Rico was called into action to deny Van Dijk.

The Dutchman beat Alisson to the ball and refrained from celebrating against his former club after stroking the ball into an empty net.
