Liverpool moved three points clear at the top of the Premier League table by beating Newcastle United 4-2 on Monday evening. 

The Reds missed the chance to go ahead early on when Mohamed Salah’s penalty was saved by Martin Dubravka, before the Egyptian eventually broke the deadlock after the break.

Alexander Isak drew the visitors level at Anfield, before quickfire goals from Curtis Jones and Cody Gakpo put the Reds back in front.

Defender Sven Botman then pulled another goal back for the Magpies, before Salah added a second from the spot after a dubious penalty was awarded for a foul on Diogo Jota.

The result moves Liverpool three points clear at the top of the Premier League, and off the pitch manager Jurgen Klopp may have been handed some more good news.

Mbappe is reportedly open to the idea of joining Liverpool

According to French outlet Le Parisien via The Mail, Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe is open to the idea of a move to Liverpool.

The Frenchman has established himself as one of the best players in world football over the past few years, scoring a remarkable 233 goals in 282 matches for PSG across all competitions.

Having been close to departing the French capital in the past, Mbappe has now entered into the final six months of his current contract and the 25-year-old is therefore able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any club outside of France.

Spanish giants Real Madrid have been regarded as the player’s most likely destination when he does leave PSG, but the report claims that the player himself is ‘not indifferent’ about the possibility of joining Klopp’s side.

Liverpool reportedly perceive Mbappe as the kind of statement signing that they need to make in order to keep up with rivals Manchester City in coming seasons.

The Reds also face the prospect of losing their own talisman – Salah – as the Egypt international continues to be the subject of intense interest from Saudi Arabian clubs.
