Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish conceded Liverpool were fortunate to take maximum points in their Premier League fixture with Fulham.

The win lifted Liverpool into seventh, their highest position of the campaign as Dalglish secured his first triumph on home soil since taking over the reins on a temporary basis.

And the Reds chief accepted his latest three-point haul in his second stint in charge came via a gift on his opponent's part.

Dalglish said "I think Fulham might feel injustice and maybe they could have come with something from the game."

But the Reds boss also felt his side had enough of a case to suggest they were worthy winners on Wednesday night.

He added: "In the first half we had six good chances, Fernando gets one chalked off which was onside.

"The lads put in a great effort and they threw their bodies on the line and they didn't want to lose a goal."

The Scot admitted luck was on their side during the encounter, including two gilt-edged chances squandered by Moussa Dembele, as well as Brede Hangeland having his effort cleared off the line by Raul Meireles.

Dalglish claimed: "They've worked hard all season and I think that's one of if not the only game where they've had some good fortune."

"But we're delighted to be up to seventh and the players have been on a hard four games so they can be happy with the work and the three points."
