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.

Salah’s place in the front three alongside Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino goes to Takumi Minamino, while Andy Robertson also misses out at left-back with James Milner deputising.


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

Jurgen Klopp’s men could’ve ended a 30-year wait to win a league title this week with victory in the Merseyside derby and at home to Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
