Rampant Liverpool Thrash Leeds United to Close The Gap on City

Rampant Liverpool cut the deficit on leaders Manchester City to three points with a 6-0 thrashing of Leeds United at a noisy Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s side warmed up for Sunday’s Carabao Cup final with an extremely overpowering performance that included three first-half goals in 20 minutes.

Mohamed Salah scored two of them on penalties and also set up defender Joel Matip for his first goal since December 2020.

Sadio Mane added two late goals, while Virgil van Dijk completed the scoring with a header in additional time.

Liverpool’s margin of victory ensures they have a better goal difference than championship rivals City, who they will face on 9 April at the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool presently lead Pep Guardiola’s side by a score of +50 to +46 after 26 games.

“It is three points [the gap at the top] until the weekend and then City will probably win and then it will be six points. If we win all our games pretty much there will be a chance for us: Klopp said

“I think for people outside it is better to have a three or six-point gap than to have a 20 or 30-point gap so it is more exciting but we have to win a lot of the games against all the difficult opponents and that will be a tricky task.

“We will give it a try.”
