Liverpool have broken their five-game winless run with a remarkable 6-1 win against Leeds United on Monday. The game saw Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah score twice each, while Cody Gakpo and substitute Darwin Nunez also got on the scoresheet. The victory was Liverpool‘s first in all competitions since they thrashed rivals Manchester United 7-0 in March, and it marks an important moment for Jurgen Klopp‘s side, who were beginning to face questions about their form in recent matches.

The game started with both teams remembering the 34th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster. Then, Liverpool took control of the game after a controversial moment in the 34th minute. Trent Alexander-Arnold appeared to use his arm to control the ball before crossing for Gakpo to score. However, the goal was allowed by the referee despite Leeds’ appeals for a handball to be given against the defender. Liverpool‘s second goal came from a superb left-footed finish by Salah, after Jota robbed Weston McKennie in midfield.

Leeds were determined to get back into the game, and they managed to reduce their deficit at the beginning of the second half. Luis Sinisterra showed strength and composure to score past Alisson after Ibrahima Konate was caught in possession. However, Liverpool quickly restored their two-goal advantage through Jota. The Portuguese forward raced on to Curtis Jones’ defence-splitting pass and curled a first-time shot beyond Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier.

Liverpool continued to dominate the game and came close to scoring again when Salah had a goal ruled out for offside. The visitors put the result beyond doubt in the 64th minute, when Andrew Robertson’s cross was helped on by Gakpo, and Salah converted his 15th league goal of the season at the far post. Jota then scuffed in a fifth goal from Jordan Henderson‘s cross in the 73rd minute, and substitute Nunez added a sixth goal late in the game.

The result is a huge blow for Leeds’ hopes of avoiding relegation, as the club slips towards the relegation zone. However, for Liverpool, the win is a sign of the team’s resilience and hunger to regain their form and confidence after a recent dip in form. The six goals scored by Liverpool also make a statement, showing they still have the attacking firepower to compete with the best teams in the league. The victory will provide a much-needed boost for Jurgen Klopp and his players as they look ahead to their remaining fixtures this season.
