Liverpool missed the chance to return to the top of the Premier League table as they battled to a 1-1 draw against Manchester City on Sunday. 

The Reds had sat top of the standings before Arsenal defeated Brentford 2-1 on Saturday, but victory for either side at Anfield on Sunday would have moved them top.

City took the lead on Merseyside when John Stones reacted quickest to a clever Kevin De Bruyne corner to tap past Caoimhin Kelleher.

Pep Guardiola’s side went into the break ahead, but their lead didn’t last long after the interval as Liverpool were awarded a penalty when goalkeeper Ederson mistimed a challenge on Darwin Nunez.

Alexis Mac Allister converted from the spot to level things up, before both sides missed chances to secure all three points.

The result means that just a single point separates the top three sides going into the final ten matches of the season.

Off the pitch, though, it appears that Liverpool are preparing for significant interest in one of their most important players.

Salah is expected to be the subject of interest from Saudi clubs once again this summer

According to Football Insider, the Merseyside club have effectively been told to ‘name their price’ for forward Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian was the subject of a £150 million bid from Al-Ittihad last summer and, although the offer was rejected, the Saudi Arabian side are expected to renew their interest this summer.

Salah’s contract is set to expire next summer meaning that he could sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club in January, but the report claims that the 31-year-old would likely still command a fee in excess of £100 million if he was sold this summer.

Since joining the Reds from Italian side Roma in 2017, Salah has scored a remarkable 205 goals in 335 matches across all competitions, as well as registering 89 assists.
