Salah’s Liverpool dropped points from their Premier League meeting with Leicester City on Wednesday night, but still sit 5 points clear on top of the league.

The Scousers increased their lead in the title race after Manchester City were beaten 2-1 by Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle side midweek.

Pogba, meanwhile, has been enjoying better form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced José Mourinho as United manager a month ago.

The Sun claim Pogba now wants a new deal at United.

Posing for pictures with Liverpool players is not be a popular thing to do, but can you imagine the uproar had Pogba posted this a month ago when he wasn’t performing at his best?
