With Manchester City not in action this weekend due to their FA Cup involvement, Liverpool knew a victory would see them return to the summit, and Sadio Mane kept up his impressive recent scoring record with his fifth goal in the past three matches.
The 26-year-old has been particularly aided by his understanding with fellow Liverpool forwards Salah and Roberto Firmino, with the trio creating a devastating attack in the last two seasons.
Mane has scored more outfield goals than any other player in the Premier League this season. "I've been saying from the start of this game far too much space in wide areas and Liverpool have exploited it".
Liverpool is two points clear of City, which has a game in hand in what looks to be a two-team race for the title.
"He's not just form man in the Premier League, he's the form man in Europe", Carragher told Sky Sports.
Fulham's bad defending all season is the reason they are heading back to the Championship after just one season back in the top flight, and the hosts gave Juergen Klopp's men a much-needed gift when goalkeeper Sergio Rico bundled over Mane and Milner secured all three points from the spot.
The Dutchman beat Alisson to the ball and refrained from celebrating against his former club after stroking the ball into an empty net.
"What has gone before I feel is probably my fault".
The hosts were a transformed side after a poor opening half and went close two minutes after the restart with Arrizabalaga pushing away midfielder Andre Gomes's stinging left-footed shot from distance.
It was his 17th Premier League goal, putting Mane level with Salah and only one behind Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.
