A rampant Liverpool closed the gap on leaders Manchester City with a 6-0 win over Leeds United
The Reds won their sixth Premier League match in a straight, cutting City’s lead at the top to three points.
Liverpool could have scored far more than six goals as they ripped apart Marcelo Bielsa’s side from start to end.
Following a handball by Stuart Dallas, Mohamed Salah scored from the penalty spot after 15 minutes.
Egypt’s Salah turned provider to make it 2-0, laying out an inch-perfect ball to Joel Matip.
Salah’s night only got better as he scored another penalty, this time after Sadio Mane was hauled down by Luke Ayling.
Leeds would have been aggrieved if they had not been awarded a penalty for a challenge on Dan James early in the second half.
Salah then blew a wonderful opportunity to win the contest by lifting the ball into the stands after a nice one-two with Curtis Jones. It didn’t matter, though, since Sadio Mane scored for Liverpool after 80 minutes.
Mane scored his second goal after ten minutes with a straightforward tap-in, and Virgil van Dijk added a sixth after being left unmarked to head home Andy Robertson’s corner.
Jurgen Klopp was obviously overjoyed following Liverpool’s six-goal thrashing of Leeds United.
The German said that he got a little ‘carried away’ with his fist-pump celebration at the end of the game.
