Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri were both on target as Liverpool beat Fulham 2-0 at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday. "It's hard to tell", Klopp said.

"We can talk about this situation for hours, but the damage is done".

"We were a bit lucky and, because of Robbo, it's maybe not 100 percent offside - his heel or whatever".

Martial stepped up and sent Ederson the wrong way to continue his good form in front of goal but despite the introduction of Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez, United could not find a way back level and Gundogan finished things off late on with a goal following a 44-pass move.

Fulham have now conceded two or more goals for the 10th time in 12 matches this season, and almost had to pick the ball out of the back of the net again when Roberto Firmino found Robertson on the counter, but Rico was on hand to keep the score at 2-0. It was hard to see for the ref, but it was a clear foul on Robbo [Andrew Robertson] because Robbo is the second free man to go there and avoid the cross - and he couldn't. He is our second guy to go there and prevent the cross and he couldn't because a Fulham player stopped him. But before that somebody had held him. We can not change it, Fulham can not change it.

"The first half was a bit of a struggle but Mo popped up at the right time and the second half was a really professional performance".

Domestic football now pauses for the latest round of global fixtures, before Liverpool face a run of 11 matches in 40 days once they return to action later this month.

However, Liverpool are in discussions with the Football Association about whether Joe Gomez will feature in England's two fixtures next week after a taxing period.

Robertson was denied a third by a good Rico save, but Liverpool had few problems seeing out a ninth league win of the season, while concerns for Slavisa Jokanovic look to be building. Now he'll have another four or five days training and play a game.

"It is like it is, we don't have to think about it". "You can't put your finger on it but sometimes when you play against these big teams and you get a corner, it's a relief and then you switch off".

"I can not make the decisions for the managers of the different countries, so if they call them up then they go there".
