Liverpool 2-1 for title after Fulham triumph

Liverpool left it late but will spend the international break on top of the Premier League after beating Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage.

Jurgen Klopp's side, 2-1 to claim the title, moved two points clear of Manchester City thanks to a James Milner penalty on 81 minutes as the Reds took advantage of the champions' FA Cup participation.

Former Liverpool man Ryan Babel had briefly put Fulham level following some calamitous defending by the visitors, cancelling out Sadio Mane's first-half strike, before Milner's winner.

City, whose game in hand is a trip to Manchester United, drifted to 4-9 with RedZone to retain the title.

It was a good day for the Merseyside clubs as Everton caused an upset at odds of 16-5 to beat Chelsea 2-0 at Goodison Park.

Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson, after his initial penalty had been saved, were on target to leave Chelsea in a difficult spot as they look to qualify for next season's Champions League.

The sixth-placed Blues are three points behind Arsenal in fourth and drifted to 2-1 for a top-four finish. According to the odds they are now more likely to reach the Champions League by winning the Europa League, for which they are 15-8 favourites.

Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri was cut to 4-6 by Sky Bet to be the next Premier League manager to leave his current position while it's 9-4 that there are no more top-flight departures.
