There’s more! Virgil van Dijk gets in on the act to add a sixth for the hosts

Goal Liverpool 5-0 Leeds

Origi slides to the ball first – breaks off the keeper and defender into the path of Mane who fires into an empty net.

Gooooaaal Liverpool 4-0 Leeds

Salah finds Henderson, who plays a great first-time ball across the box and Mane finishes emphatically!!

Second Half

The second 45 is underway!

Half-time

Liverpool 3-0 Leeds

A well-placed penalty from Salah, as he nets his second of the night, curling the ball into the top-right corner. Class!

Penalty for Liverpool

Mane is running in on goal, past Ayling and although it looked as if the forward was off balance when Ayling made contact, the penalty is awarded and Ayling is booked.

Another goal! Liverpool 2-0 Leeds

Matip giraffe’s his way up the pitch, plays it to Mo, keeps going gets on the end of Mo’s through ball and he puts it past the keeper.

Gooooal Liverpool 1-0 Leeds

Clinical from the spot from Salah, who sends Meslier the wrong way. Liverpool have been below par so far but they have the lead.

Kickoff!

The Reds have bided their time, with 16 points from a maximum of 18 over the last six matches, waiting for leaders Man City to falter. The Citizens did just that over the weekend, falling at the last second to Tottenham 3-2 and leaving Liverpool with a chance to further close the gap.

With a six-point margin between the clubs at the top of the table, Liverpool has a chance to cut that lead in half and move to within a single game of Man City.

Team News

Should be a cracker tonight at Anfield if last season’s 4-3 is anything to go by.
