Liverpool 6-0 Leeds

Premier League, Anfield
February 23, 2022

Goals: Salah pens 15′ & 35′, Matip 30′, Mane 80′ & 89′, Van Dijk 90′


Jurgen Klopp‘s team faced a vital Premier League clash against the Whites, looking to go within just three points of Man City.

They did exactly that, as their relentless form continues.

Mohamed Salah fired Liverpool in front from the penalty spot after a handball by Stuart Dallas, before Joel Matip added a second after a trademark run forward.

It was 3-0 before half-time, as Salah buried his second spot-kick of the night, all but putting the game to bed.

Sadio Mane bagged a brace late on, as Leeds‘ humiliation continued, and Virgil van Dijk completed the scoring with a stoppage time header.
