There was nothing fancy about James Milner's match-winning penalty, nothing fancy about the three points it secured for Liverpool.
The Cottagers might be dead and buried at the foot of the table, but this game was no walkover and Liverpool could have easily dropped points against Scott Parker's outfit.
"First half we dominated them and even the second half we were very much in control until probably the unexpected mistake. That's our job to do".
"I am not the most experienced manager and I have similar problems after Champions League games. I don't think that matters", Molby said on LFC TV after the win at Fulham, when contrasting Liverpool and Manchester City's push for the title.
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.
Liverpool started the second half with greater intent to try and put the game to bed.
However, as a torrential rain shower swept over the banks of the Thames to make playing conditions hazardous, Liverpool's slender lead proved a unsafe one.

And the Cottagers thought they'd levelled on 65 minutes when Aleksandar Mitrovic diverted Zambo Anguissa's effort past Alisson, but the Serbia global was flagged offside.
"It's one of those situations where you try to head it back".
"I am not giving excuses".
However, the league leaders showed why they are in the running to end a 29-year title drought to get a vital three points with the help of some erratic goalkeeping from Rico.
Such has been the Egyptian's phenomenal impact since his arrival at Anfield in the summer of 2017, he stands on the brink of becoming the quickest player in the club's history to reach 50 Premier League strikes. "After the equaliser we were much clearer than before the equaliser".
But like Alisson before him, Rico erred and Milner drove a redemptive spot-kick down the middle of the goal.
