Liverpool vs Leeds LIVE!

Liverpool suffered a shock 2-1 defeat by Leeds after Crysencio Summerville's 89th minute strike in their Premier League clash at Anfield on Saturday that took the visitors out of the relegation zone.

Liverpool got off to another disastrous start after four minutes when Joe Gomez played a blind backpass to Alisson who had moved out of his goal and slipped, leaving a gaping space for Rodrigo to run in and tap the ball into the empty net.

Mohamed Salah levelled for Liverpool 10 minutes later when Andy Robertson crossed for the Egyptian international to hook a volley into the net from close range, igniting the Liverpool supporters as their team began the chase for a winner. Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier kept his side in the game almost single-handedly in the second half, pulling off a string of fine saves and setting the scene for Summerville to steal the three points with a last-gasp poacher's finish.

There’s only one word to describe that picture of the away end: pandemonium!

Full time!

21:40 , Marc Mayo

Leeds win it at the death!

They go out of the bottom three and Jesse Marsch can breathe a big sigh of relief - that’s their first Premier League win since August...

A penny for Jurgen Klopp’s thoughts?

21:38 , Marc Mayo

90+5 mins: Henderson fires a very, very hopeful shot high and wide from 30 yards.

Cue away end cheers.

21:37 , Marc Mayo

90+3 mins: Meslier patched up, we’re back underway... and the clock is ticking on Liverpool.

21:35 , Marc Mayo

90 mins: Five minutes added on, Ayling replaces Summerville for Leeds.

And we have a break in play as Robertson connects with Meslier. He’ll need treatment.

GGGOOOOOAOAAALLLLLLL!!!!! Liverpool 1-2 Leeds | Summerville

21:32 , Marc Mayo


Gnonto causes problems down the left before Bamford creates uncertainty, Summervlle picking up the ball and gently rolling it past Alisson.

The away end goes mad!


21:32 , Marc Mayo

88 mins: Guess who!? Meslier gets down smartly to deny Firmino’s powerful header, and grabs the loose ball as Liverpool strikers lurked.

21:30 , Marc Mayo

85 mins: Meslier there again! Salah rolled in down the left this time and he is a bit too far out to make a shot across goal work, the Leeds goalkeeper getting down with his feet to divert it away.

There was certainly a handball in that build-up, it wouldn’t have stood.

21:26 , Marc Mayo

82 mins: Firmino has been quiet all day but gets his chance to be the hero, a ball dropping slightly awkwardly in the box and his volley is not quite perfect. Meslier can land on it.


21:24 , Marc Mayo

80 mins: Oh dear... Bamford looks to control the ball in a fabulous position in the box after a fine Leeds break.

And he simply gets it all wrong. The chance goes. A real lack of sharpness from the striker on show, there.


21:22 , Marc Mayo

78 mins: Meslier acrobatically denies Nunez as he cuts inside from 20 yards and lets fly with a fine effort that would have nestled neatly in the top corner.

Leeds old boy Milner comes on for Alexander-Arnold.

21:18 , Marc Mayo

74 mins: Hmmm. If there is any moment to sum up the slight malaise around Salah lately, that is it.

Beating two defenders with a quick touch into the box, he goes for a toe poke across goal. Neither a shot nor a cross, it drifts out of play.

21:16 , Marc Mayo

72 mins: Harrison off for Leeds debutant Gnonto, the 18-year-old Italy international signed from Zurich in the summer.


21:15 , Marc Mayo

70 mins: Jones links up well with Salah and the goal opens up for the Egyptian, only for a diving Leeds leg to get a touch as he poked a shot over.

Liverpool want a corner for that, the replays make it hard to tell - let alone in real time.

21:12 , Marc Mayo

68 mins: Two mis-kicks almost get Liverpool ahead, Nunez’s errant header landing at Henderson by the far post, whose cross back in actually looks like it might have gone in had Meslier not got a low hand to it.

Something big coming from the Reds?


21:10 , Marc Mayo

66 mins: Meslier saves the day!

Cooper gets done all ends up by Salah, facing his own goal. The ball is rolled into Nunez and his low effort is denied by the goalkeeper.

21:09 , Marc Mayo

65 mins: Leeds on top in this period, Alexander-Arnold muscling the ball out for a corner after Harrison threatens again.

The winger, as his fans sing his name by the corner flag, loops an overhit cross out of play. As you were...

21:05 , Marc Mayo

61 mins: Jones looks to make an early impact with a mazey run from right to left, Robertson picking up the move and driving a shot straight at the keeper.

21:03 , Marc Mayo

59 mins: Harrison sets about the Liverpool defence and feeds Bamford, who spins and shoots early to catch Alisson out - but lands his shot right on the Brazilian’s chest.

Here comes those subs - Elliott and Fabinho off, Henderson and Jones on.

21:01 , Marc Mayo

57 mins: A bit of a rise out the home fans after that decent Leeds spell.

Salah dances his way past a couple of defenders but his touch takes him a bit away from goal, and he skews hit shot high and wide.

Klopp turns to his bench...

20:59 , Marc Mayo

54 mins: Not the most technical of games but plenty of intrigue as Leeds can certainly win this.

Summerville rolls an imperfect ball to Kristensen in a good position on the right and Liverpool scramble it into touch.

20:54 , Marc Mayo

51 mins: Marsch is already turning to his bench as Leeds swing in a corner, Gomez clearing before Salah is felled by Roca.

Bamford set to come on shortly. Off comes Rodrigo, the early goalscorer. He comes off not walking too cleanly, an injury perhaps?

20:53 , Marc Mayo

49 mins: Liverpool on the front foot early in the half with Nunez peeling off down the right, placing a cross into Meslier’s arms.

Leeds still look pretty energetic themselves, the pattern of this game still very much as it was in the first period.

Kick off!

20:48 , Marc Mayo

No changes for either side as the second half gets underway.

First-half highlights

20:45 , Marc Mayo

A seventh goal in four starts against Leeds for Mo Salah.

Leeds no doubt the happier of the sides in that half

20:42 , Marc Mayo

The question is, can they sustain their energy levels - and maybe take a chance on the break?

First-half highlights

20:40 , Marc Mayo

A mad opener from Rodrigo after Gomez’s error.

Half time!

20:33 , Marc Mayo

Aaronson sets Rodrigo on the counter and he bares down on Gomez, firing a low shot that Alisson is equal to.

And with that, the first half is complete! All square at the break, a sub-par Liverpool level thanks to Mohamed Salah after that early opener.

20:31 , Marc Mayo

45 mins: Two added minutes with the home team on the attack.

20:31 , Marc Mayo

44 mins: Close for Liverpool!

Robertson bombs down the left, nutmegging Adams before his cross balloons up off a deflection, and tickles the outside of the far post with Meslier beaten all ends up.

20:28 , Marc Mayo

42 mins: Something of a fracas in front of the dugouts as Robertson reacts to Aaronson winning a foul off him by kicking the ball into the Leeds man.

Adams flew into it for the visitors before Klopp dragged his defender away. Michael Oliver calms it all down without any bookings.

20:25 , Marc Mayo

38 mins: Klopp is certainly showing some vocal chords, getting right on Fabinho’s case with Liverpool not fairing too well in the midfield battle.

Salah takes aim from 20 yards but lands a shot gently in the goalkeeper’s arms.

20:22 , Marc Mayo

35 mins: A half chance again for Liverpool as Thiago sends a Robertson ball back across the six-yard box... and the first leg to it is a Leeds one.

Minor suggestions of the home crowd getting more interested in this one, the atmosphere more reminiscent of a midday kick-off than a fervent Saturday night under the lights.


20:18 , Marc Mayo

31 mins: Strong from Kristensen as Salah chases a ball through from Nunez, his slide tackle diverting the ball home to Meslier.

Minor calls for a pass-back are waved away by Michael Oliver.

Soon after, Nunez is in another good position but finds Meslier right in his face before he can get a shot away.

20:14 , Marc Mayo

28 mins: It just isn’t happening for Liverpool as Salah cuts inside with a bit of space but misplaces a short ball to Firmino and the momentum of the attack dries up.

20:11 , Marc Mayo

24 mins: Honours even at four shots, two on target and a goal apiece here.

Leeds more than holding their own.


20:07 , Marc Mayo

20 mins: Aaronson rattles the crossbar with a chance from a delightful ball off the right wing!

Liverpool’s defence had no answer to that but survive nonetheless before Alisson denies Harrison as Leeds come again.

20:03 , Marc Mayo

17 mins: Liverpool continue their pressure before Elliott loses the ball by the edge of the box and Leeds break - Harrison’s long run forward only ended by a stunning tackle by Thiago as he tracked back into his own D.

GGGOOOOOAAALLLLL!!! Liverpool 1-1 Leeds | Salah

20:00 , Marc Mayo

14 mins: WE’RE LEVEL!

After the corner, Liverpool continue to load balls into the box and eventually one falls for Salah to slot home!


19:59 , Marc Mayo

13 mins: A lovely pass around the corner from Nunez reaches Firmino through on goal, he tries to dink Meslier from close range but the goalkeeper smothers it.

19:57 , Marc Mayo

11 mins: A lot of confidence for Leeds as Liverpool’s midfield of Elliott, Fabinho and Thiago does a poor job of keeping space tight off the ball.

Harrison cuts inside and curls a 20-yard hit wide.

19:57 , Marc Mayo

9 mins: A long crossfield ball towards Robertson goes out of play in front of the Leeds fans, who are loving life right now. No sign of any Marsch chants while they amuse themselves with goading the quiet home support.

GGGOOOOOAALLLLL! Liverpool 0-1 Leeds | Rodrigo

19:50 , Marc Mayo

4 mins: HOW ABOUT THAT?!

It’s Christmas come early at Anfield! After Cooper’s gift goes unpunished, Gomez lays a chance on a plate for Rodrigo with an awful pass along his own goalline that the Spaniard slots home.

Deary me...


19:47 , Marc Mayo

1 min: Meslier comes out to collect a long ball and Copper bafflingly heads it past the goalkeeper!

Salah chases it down and tries to finish from a tight angle but has his shot cleared by Struijk on the line. A real scare for Leeds.


19:46 , Marc Mayo

We’re underway for Liverpool vs Leeds!

Here come the players!

19:42 , Marc Mayo

A packed-out Anfield greet their heroes.

Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool’s diamond formation

19:41 , Marc Mayo

“There’s no system where the players can rest, it makes sense in this moment. We have a limited amount of strikers, for the three boys it’s the best possible position for them.

“Up until the last line nothing changes, so we can rely on things from the past that were very good and it gives us a chance to use our strikers in their best position.”

Jesse Marsch previews the game

19:37 , Marc Mayo

“When you look at the table, if we can get a couple of results we can be fine. If we perform at our best then everyone will feel like we’re moving in the right direction. It’s a big task, we believe in ourselves.”

Ten-minute warning!

19:34 , Marc Mayo

Liverpool have dropped to ninth in the table with today’s results but will lift themselves up to seventh with a victory.

Wolves’ draw earlier on has sent Leeds to 19th and they can go 15th if they pull off a shock win.

Around the grounds

19:30 , Marc Mayo

A goalless draw between Fulham and Everton in the 5.30pm kick-off continues today’s bumper Premier League action.

Earlier on, Kevin De Bruyne struck Manchester City’s winner at Leicester before Brighton thumped old boss Graham Potter’s Chelsea and Tottenham came from behind to beat Bournemouth.

The warm-ups are underway!

19:25 , Marc Mayo

The Anfield atmosphere is building nicely ahead of kick-off.

What can we expect of this man tonight?

19:20 , Marc Mayo

A fifth start in six games for Harvey Elliott, in which time he has bagged two goals.

The 19-year-old has made himself one of Jurgen Klopp’s trusted midfielders after injuries helped open up his opportunity.

Is a shot at the England World Cup squad within his reach?


Anfield looking good ahead of kick-off!

19:15 , Marc Mayo

We are half an hour away from the players stepping out on that hallowed turf.

Marsch wants to ‘seize the moment'

19:09 , Marc Mayo

Jesse Marsch currently leads the bookies’ odds on the next Premier League boss to lose their job.

Without a league win since August, will that change tonight?

“We keep finding ways to lose,” said Marsch.

“Every game’s been in the balance but when the players’ stress levels are high their attention span isn’t. And when we get the breaks, we’re not seizing the moment.”

Klopp expects Leeds fightback

19:03 , Marc Mayo

Jesse Marsch is fighting for his job and Jurgen Klopp does not expect an easy game tonight against the American’s Leeds team.

"When we talk about our situation, how can we improve it, it sounds like we just have to play better and then - ah, there's still an opponent," said the Liverpool boss.

"And Leeds are really going for it, Leeds are super lively, super aggressive. I think Jesse at Salzburg, Leipzig was a lot of high press, stuff like this.

“Now it's a lot of midfield press, make spaces really small, going for counter-attacks, a lot of really good players, talented players.”

Three changes for Leeds

18:58 , Marc Mayo

Luis Sinisterra misses out for Leeds tonight as Tyler Adams, Liam Cooper and Rodrigo Moreno come through late fitness tests.

Crysencio Summerville starts on the flank with Luke Ayling replaced by Rasmus Kristensen and Adams in for Sam Greenwood.

Thiago returns

18:54 , Marc Mayo

Good news for Liverpool as Thiago Alcantara, as expected, makes Jurgen Klopp’s line-up.

The Spaniard is the only change from the win at Ajax, replacing Jordan Henderson who is on the bench after a knee knock.

Adam Forshaw and Stuart Dallas are expected back later in the year.

Early Liverpool team news

17:52 , Marc Mayo

Jurgen Klopp will have Thiago Alcantara back for the visit of Leeds but Ibrahima Konate is a doubt despite appearing off the bench in midweek.

Jordan Henderson’s availability after a knock to the knee is also up in the air while Luis Diaz, Arthur, Joel Matip and Diogo Jota all remain out of contention.

How to watch

17:47 , Marc Mayo

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the Sky Go app.

Hello and welcome!

14:35 , Marc Mayo

Liverpool host Leeds in the Premier League as both teams look to fire up their underwhelming league form.

Not since the last days of summer has Jesse Marsch won a league game with the Whites languishing in the dropzone ahead of the match.

Jurgen Klopp has steered an inconsistent Liverpool side with their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League very much in doubt at this stage.

Kick-off from Anfield comes at 7.45pm BST.
