This weekend Liverpool began their title defence with a 4-3 win over Leeds United. In typical fashion the Reds seemed intent on making it as difficult as possible for themselves, leaving it until late to score the winner having led three times in the game. One man in particular was in electric form; Twitter has reacted after Mo Salah tore Leeds United apart.

Opening day chaos

After 33 minutes on Saturday, Liverpool were 3-2 up at Anfield.

The hosts went into an early lead when Mo Salah converted a penalty he won but the visitors soon clawed one back with an excellent goal from Jack Harrison.

It was then Virgil van Dijk’s turn with the Dutchman firing in a commanding header from an Andy Robertson corner on 20 minutes.

The towering centre half was at fault when Leeds United equalised ten minutes later.

Mo Salah whacked one into the top corner shortly after half an hour and the Reds maintained their lead until a well taken strike equalised for the Whites in the 66th minute.

The game was decided with just a few minutes remaining when Mo Salah converted another penalty to sent Leeds United home empty handed.

Mo Salah masterclass against Leeds United

From the first whistle Mo Salah looked like a man possessed against Leeds United.

The Egyptian King ran rings around the visitors, skipped past defenders and always looking to get on the ball.

He took both penalties emphatically and the goal in between was a superlative effort, an instinctive finish.

It was just yet another Mo Salah masterclass.

One fan pointed out that the winger equaled a Premier League record for consecutive opening day goals.

 

Another insisted that he is a legend of the club.

This supporter believes that he is still underrated.

He just has that instinct.

Fans just can’t stop watching his second goal.

The Anfield Wrap made an optimistic prediction.
