90+4 mins: There goes the whistle, Leeds fought back to equalise three times but Liverpool went one better. It’s been a belting game and a good welcome back for Leeds Utd. Unfortunately for them Liverpool take the victory and three points.
Mo Salah was the star on the pitch scoring his third Premier League hat-trick.

90+2 mins: It’s Liverpool’s turn to sit in now but Leeds aren’t pressing quickly enough to cause them many problems. Two minutes to go.
Michael Jones12 September 2020 19:19
90 mins: Trent Alexander-Arnold goes off with Joel Matip shutting it down for Liverpool in the closing minutes. There’s going to be a minimum of four minutes added on.

Liverpool 4 – 3 Leeds – Salah
88 mins: GOAL! Salah completes his hat-trick! Liverpool get their fourth, will it be a winner? I think so.
