Liverpool were the better team

Leeds did work hard and gave Liverpool a good game, but in the end, the difference in quality showed and the Reds deservedly won the Premier League match.

Liverpool were also helped by the dismissal of Pascal Struijk in the 60th minute for a challenge on Harvey Elliott.

Sadio Mane himself took 10 shots and scored just once.

It would not have flattered the Reds if they had won by a bigger margin.

Liverpool’s strong start to the Premier League campaign continued, while Leeds will have to start winning matches and kickstart their season.
