Liverpool ended its five-game winless run in all competitions with a 6-1 victory against struggling Leeds United in the Premier League on Monday, April 17 at Elland Road, England. Liverpool had not tasted victory in the Premier League in more than six weeks, since routing Manchester United 7-0.
To Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp, it was the “best game” his side has produced in a topsy-turvy 2022-23 campaign. After a not up to scratch run of form, Liverpool looked dedicated to show the rest of the Premier League that it is still in with a chance of securing a place in the Champions League next season and the Reds kept their foot on the gas in search of another goal.
Alexander-Arnold shone in a new hybrid midfield role and had 153 touches in the game, becoming the second-most of any player in a Premier League match this season.
Leeds United now has to avoid relegation. Its head coach Javi Gracia said that his players must improve their levels, as the club stands at the 16th place and with just two points above the relegation and facing a tough run-in to the season.
On the other hand, Klopp was pleased and said, “It was a really good game, sensational goals. Counter-pressing-wise, the best game for decades.”
