Liverpool raised its score to 10 points, equal to the leaders Manchester United and Chelsea.
Liverpool, seeking to restore the local league title from its neighbor, Manchester City, maintained its unbeaten record in 14 consecutive games, an extension of last season, including five consecutive victories outside its stadium. He also did not lose in 33 matches in a row, which saw the participation of the Dutch defensive duo Virgil van Dijk and Cameroonian Joel Matip as key players side by side.
In the absence of injured Brazilian Roberto Firmino, Portuguese Diogo Jota took part in the Liverpool squad.
The start was quick from both sides, and Leeds had the first chance after a quick counter-attack in which the ball on the right flank reached the Brazilian Rafinha, who passed a defender from Liverpool and passed an elegant ball towards the Spaniard Rodrigo, but the latter shot a left ball into the hands of Brazilian goalkeeper Alison (6).
Liverpool responded after a wonderful joint game between Salah and Jota, which reached the last unattended in the area, and he shot it on the “fly”, but Leeds’ French goalkeeper Ilan Millier blocked his attempt brilliantly (15).
Liverpool made a quick counter-attack when Matip walked the ball for a long distance and passed it towards Trent Alexander-Arnold and from him cross towards Salah, who followed it with his left into the net (20), raising his score to 100 in the English Premier League.
Salah scored his 100 goals in 162 matches. Only four players have succeeded in overcoming the 100-goal barrier in fewer matches: Alan Shearer (124 games), Harry Kane (141), Argentine Sergio Aguero (147) and French Thierry Henry (160).
Salah is four goals away from equaling the record for the best African scorer in the English Premier League, recorded by the Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba, the former Chelsea striker (104 goals).
The Brazilian Thiago Alcantara scored a goal with his head, but the referee canceled it due to Salah’s offside, who passed the ball to him (23).
And Miller intervened to save his goal from a sure goal by the young Liverpool player, 18-year-old Harvey Elliott (25).
Salah and Mane exchanged the ball and the latter shot with his left from the outskirts of the area outside the three blocks (31).
Liverpool began the second half and ended the first with a pressing attack. The Senegalese, Sadio Mane, almost doubled his team’s advance, but stumbled before paying, as his teammates demanded a penalty kick, but the referee did not care about them. And from a corner kick directly after that, Fabinho added the second goal from close range (51).
Elliot suffered a horrific injury after a joint ball with Leeds defender Pascal Stroek (60), which necessitated the entry of the medical staff to Liverpool to give him first aid without obtaining permission from the referee at the request of Salah, who was the closest to the incident.
Patrick Bamford almost reduced the difference when he snatched the ball from Thiago in the middle of the field and hit a ball behind the advancing goalkeeper, but the latter managed to save it at the last moment (75).
Liverpool continued its advantage, and missed a number of goals, especially through Mane, before the latter concluded the festival of goals in the second minute of stoppage time after a joint game between Jordan Henderson and Thiago.
The stage concludes, Monday, with Everton and Burnley meeting.PUT 1xbet
