Salah left on the bench in Liverpool’s return
Mohamed Salah was left on the bench for Liverpool’s first game in 106 days as the Reds failed to move within one win of the Premier League title following a 0-0 draw at Everton.

The Egyptian is Liverpool’s top scorer in the league this season with 16 goals.
