Liverpool came on the pitch shortly after Tottenham drew with Crystal Palace and needed a win against Fulham, away from home, to take the lead in the Premier League in isolation. However, the Reds also tied.
In an electrifying game with great performances from the two goalkeepers (Alphonse Areola and Alisson), the home team opened the scoring with Bobby De Cordova-Reid at Craven Cottage, and Mohamed Salah, from a penalty, defined equality in a duel valid for the 12th round
With the result, Liverpool reaches 25 points, trailing only on goal difference (14 to 9) compared to Tottenham, who will be their opponent next Wednesday at Anfield. The Reds have not lost in the Premier League for eight matches (four wins and four draws). The last setback was the 7-2 for Aston Villa on 4 October.
