Leeds knock Liverpool out of the Premier League

Jesse Marsch will be able to sleep more peacefully. The American coach of Leeds, who seemed very threatened because of the multiple poor performances of his team, 18th before moving to Liverpool on Saturday, saw his personal situation strengthen considerably after the unexpected success obtained by the Whites (1- 2) at Anfield, as part of the 14th day of the Premier League.

This victory, which allows Leeds to climb to 15th place in the standings, owes a lot to its French goalkeeper Illan Meslier, author of a capital performance punctuated by 9 saves, and to a late goal from the young Dutch winger Crysencio Summerville (20 years old). ), who took advantage of the passivity of the Reds defense to score from the right in the 90th minute (1-2).

But this result is also due to an overall poor performance by Jürgen Klopp’s players, who, once again this season, conceded the opener early following an individual error. Namely a pass in the ill-adjusted axis of Joe Gomez by Alisson, which turned into an offering for Rodrigo (0-1, 4th). The equalization of Mohamed Salah (1-1, 14th), on receiving a cross from Andy Robertson, proved to be anecdotal, since then we hardly saw the Egyptian, while Darwin Nunez (67th, 79th) and Roberto Firmino (82nd, 89th) kept coming up against Meslier.

Liverpool fall one place

This defeat, combined with Brighton’s victory against Chelsea (4-1), pushed the Reds down one place (they are now ninth) and extinguished the hopes of a revival that had been raised by their splendid success against Manchester City (1-0, October 16).
