LONDON (AP) — Steven Gerrard scored a last-minute penalty as Liverpool followed up its weekend thrashing of Arsenal with a gritty 3-2 win at last-place Fulham in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Gerrard stroked home the spot kick after Sascha Riether fouled Daniel Sturridge in the 90th minute.

After routing Arsenal 5-1 at Anfield on Saturday, Liverpool had to come from behind twice for a precious victory at Craven Cottage.

Liverpool's Kolo Toure gifted Fulham the opening goal as the defender sliced the ball into his own net from Kieran Richardson's cross.

Sturridge leveled before the interval, slotting home off the post after Gerrard had played a superb defense-splitting pass into his path.

Richardson put the Cottagers back in front in the 63rd minute, only for Philippe Coutinho to equalize in the 72nd.
