Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw by Leeds in a result that might be critical if the Champions League remains a functioning entity next season.
Under the shadow of their acceptance into the European Super League, Jurgen Klopp’s side moved into a first-half lead as Sadio Mane broke his lengthy goal drought.
Leeds pressed in the second half and ultimately levelled with three minutes remaining as Diego Llorente headed home a Jack Harrison cross to deny the Merseyside Reds three points.
✔️ Trent Alexander-Arnold: 7.8
Since being dropped by England, Alexander-Arnold’s form has generally been impressive, one notable slip against Real Madrid aside.
Here, he showed his attacking qualities with an excellent assist to create the opening goal for Mane.
Overall, he was one of Liverpool’s most active players and is knocking on the door of the national side still.
✔️ Sadio Mane: 7.4
Ended a nine-game run without a goal by opening the scoring midway through the first half of the match.
He was the recipient of a brilliant first-time cross by Trent Alexander-Arnold and dispatched it perfectly.
Replaced with 19 minutes to go by Mohamed Salah
⭐ Diego Llorente: 7.9
Llorente had neutrals all round the country off their feet with three minutes remaining as he converted Harrison’s corner, completing a deserved route back into the match for a Leeds side that had pressed and pressed throughout the second half only to be foiled by an in-form Alisson.
His goal was Leeds’ 200th in the league under Marcelo Bielsa.
