Mohamed Salah avoids serious ankle damage in Liverpool’s Leicester win

Mohamed Salah avoids serious ankle damage in Liverpool’s Leicester win

Of the Senegal forward, who will be in Singapore as the Teranga Lions take on Brazil in a friendly at the National Stadium on Thursday, the German said: "Even though he is obviously not in good shape at the moment, he was still there in a really tough game".

However, Milner stayed cool with nearly the last kick of the game to seal Liverpool's 17th straight Premier League win and open up an eight-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table.

A 40th-minute strike from Mane had given Liverpool a first-half lead but Brendan Rodgers' return to Anfield looked like it might have been a successful one when James Maddison slotted in a low finish with 10 minutes remaining. That was in January, while Liverpool last failed to win a match home or away in March. After a delay for a VAR check, Milner held his nerve from the penalty spot. "City have stayed at that level of great consistency [but] I think Liverpool [will win the Premier League]". "His whole ambition was to win the Champions League and he felt that he would have a better opportunity to win it at Liverpool".

It looked as though Liverpool would continue a winning streak that dates back 216 days thanks to a characteristically superb piece of attacking play five minutes before the interval.

Enforcement proves tricky in a city where masks have often been used since a deadly respiratory disease outbreak in 2003. The ban, which took influence Saturday, induced chaos for a third straight day in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory.

Brighton's other goals were scored by 19-year-old Irish striker Aaron Connolly in his first league start.

"Liverpool have got Leicester, Manchester United, Tottenham and Man City in their next five league games, so that's going to be a true test for them", McAteer told the Racing Post.

"He was brilliant. Then you see what he has done". Andre Gray missed an open goal for Watford early in the game.

In other results, Aston Villa thumped Norwich City 5-1, Burnley edged Everton 1-0 and Crystal Palace won 2-1 at West Ham United.
