Liverpool miss chance to go top after Everton Draw

Liverpool could not break down a stubborn Everton in Sunday’s Merseyside derby, with Jurgen Klopp’s side denied the chance to reclaim top spot in the Premier League.

Manchester City’s 1-0 win at Bournemouth a day earlier moved the defending champions back to the summit, meaning Liverpool had to win at Goodison Park on Sunday to go top once more.

But with Mohamed Salah wasting the clearest chance of the game for Liverpool, Everton prevented their rivals from taking another step towards the club’s first title of the Premier League era.

Salah should have given Liverpool the lead when played through by Fabinho, but the Egypt star could not find the right angle to beat Pickford as the Everton goalkeeper made himself big.
