However, it was even more damaging for struggling Stoke, whose point failed to see them escape the bottom three. With all their relegation rivals having games in hand, their top-flight future looks bleak. Jurgen Klopp's side still require a maximum of four points from their last two matches - including next week's crucial trip to Chelsea - but equally worrying were injury scares for Jordan Henderson and Salah ahead of Wednesday's Champions League semi-final second leg which they lead 5-2.
