LEEDS (REUTERS) – Mohamed Salah’s 100th Premier League objective assisted Liverpool with cruising to a 3-0 triumph at 10-man Leeds United on Sunday (Sept 12) in a match that was damaged by a dreadful physical issue to teen Harvey Elliott.
After a lightning-quick beginning to the game, Salah turned into the 30th player to join the Premier League’s 100-objective club in the twentieth moment, tapping home from short proximity from a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross.
The guests botched a large group of opportunities to make it two in the primary half, before Fabinho made the most of one right off the bat in the subsequent period to put Juergen Klopp’s side on course for three focuses in West Yorkshire.
There was a stressing sight later in the half as Elliott required extended treatment on the pitch following a tackle from Leeds’ Pascal Struijk, with the hosts’ substitute shown a straight red card for the test by the arbitrator.

Liverpool recovered to add a stoppage-time third through Sadio Mane to put the seal on a triumph that moved them above Manchester City into third in the standings, while Leeds sit seventeenth without a success from four association coordinates with this season.
