Leeds United vs Liverpool




Liverpool thrashed Leeds United 6-1 at Elland Road on Monday night to keep their slim hopes of a European spot alive. The Reds were ruthless in front of goal, scoring four times in the second half to condemn Leeds to their 16th defeat of the season.


The visitors took the lead in the seventh minute when Mohamed Salah converted a penalty after Junior Firpo fouled Cody Gakpo in the box. Leeds equalised in the 22nd minute when Luis Sinisterra volleyed home from a Jack Harrison cross.


But Liverpool regained their advantage just before half-time when Diogo Jota headed in from a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner. The second half was a one-sided affair, as Liverpool ran riot against a hapless Leeds defence.


Salah scored his second of the night in the 51st minute with a low shot from inside the area after a neat pass from Jordan Henderson. Gakpo made it 4-1 in the 59th minute with a curling effort from the edge of the box that left Illan Meslier stranded.


Jota completed his brace in the 73rd minute with a tap-in from a Roberto Firmino cross. And Darwin Nunez added further gloss to the scoreline in the 90th minute with a powerful strike from close range after a mistake by Rasmus Kristensen.


Liverpool moved up to eighth place in the table, five points behind fifth-placed Tottenham with two games in hand. Leeds remained 16th, two points above the relegation zone with six games left to play.


The result was a huge boost for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who had faced criticism for his team's poor form this season. The German praised his players for their clinical performance and said they still had a chance of qualifying for Europe.


"We played very well today, we were focused and determined. We scored some fantastic goals and we defended well too. We showed our quality and our character. We are not giving up on anything, we still have a lot to play for," he said.


Leeds boss Javi Gracia was disappointed with his team's display and admitted they were outclassed by Liverpool. The Spaniard said they had to improve quickly if they wanted to avoid relegation.


"We were not at our level today, we made too many mistakes and we paid for them. Liverpool were superior in every aspect and they deserved to win. We have to learn from this game and try to do better in the next one. We are in a difficult situation but we have to fight until the end," he said.
