Liverpool held by Everton, fails to grab top spot from City
LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Mohamed Salah wasted scoring chances as Liverpool failed to regain top spot from Manchester City after being held 0-0 by cross-town rival Everton in the Premier League on Sunday.
Seeking to end a 29-year wait for the top-flight title, Liverpool trails defending champion City by a point with nine matches remaining after a fourth draw in six matches.
And Salah’s search for a 50th league goal for the club continues.
When Everton’s Morgan Schneiderlin got caught out of position in central midfield, Fabinho slipped through a pass, but Salah narrowed the angle too much and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford pulled off a good save.
Everton, which has gone 17 derbies without a win, is in 10th place.
