Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has tipped Leeds to survive in the Premier League after the Reds were made to work hard for a 4-3 victory at Anfield against the top-flight newcomers. A Mohamed Salah hat-trick was eventually the difference between the two sides.

Klopp said on Sky Sports: “What a game, what an opponent, what a performance from both teams. A proper spectacle, I loved that.

“It is pretty rare you see that many goals in a game, we have left space for improvement in our defending but that is not unusual for a first game.

“Our players have played a few days ago for their countries so it is possible.

“The opponent forced us to make mistakes, we can do better, we will do better but I loved a lot about the game against a well-organised, passionate side like Leeds.

Meanwhile, Leeds striker Patrick Bamford believes there are lots of positives they can take from the match.

He explained: “We just said in the changing room we can take positives from the game but we’re going to be down tonight because we didn’t get a result.

“I should have scored before I actually scored.

“The fact we created chances, there are positives to build on.

“We do play energetic football and high pressing football. Both teams played a similar style.”
