Liverpool vs Leeds United | Liverpool’s Anfield Leeds United stunned a poor Liverpool and won 2-1 at Anfield thanks to an outstanding effort.

Despite travelling to Merseyside having lost their previous four games, Jesse Marsch’s team shown their continued support for their coach by outplaying the hosts and snapping their 29-game undefeated home record.

Four minutes in, Rodrigo took advantage of an Alisson error to put the ball into an empty net, giving them the lead.

Through a volley from Mohamed Salah, Liverpool swiftly pulled even. Despite this, Leeds remained competitive as time ran down.

And their effort was rewarded in the 89th minute when Crysencio Summerville superbly controlled before poking home to erupt the away end.

Liverpool has to take action in January

Liverpool’s outstanding results over the previous several years have trained us to anticipate a significant shift in gear this season.

However, it is becoming more and more obvious that the Reds won’t be able to return to their peak without some retooling with each passing week and dismal performance.

A group that just seems to have lasted a year too long has to be reenergized in January, and it will likely take more than one player to turn things around.

If Liverpool’s problems had already been solved at the club, then their decline would have already been halted, thus it is hard to foresee things suddenly turning around.

Midfield issues persist

Liverpool vs Leeds United The centre of midfield is undoubtedly the team’s top contender for immediate surgery in the middle of the season.

Liverpool faced Leeds with an issue that has plagued them throughout this campaign’s early stages: a total lack of control in the park’s middle.

Since August, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho have appeared to be shells of their former selves. Additionally, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, and Fabio Carvalho are too young to be expected to perform at a high level, and Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-fitness Chamberlain’s records prevent us from relying on them.

Another addition in this part of the field is unquestionably required, with Arthur Melo’s injury effectively preventing him from having any significant impact.

Otherwise, more sluggish, listless performances would follow in which the opponents are effectively given the most crucial area of the field.

Leeds is completely behind Marsch

Even though Liverpool will likely receive a lot of attention for yet another devastating defeat, it’s crucial to acknowledge the game-changing efforts of their opponents.

After four straight losses, Leeds found themselves in the bottom three coming to Anfield, and boss Marsch was being discussed as an early-season contender to be fired.

However, his squad put up a fantastically brave performance that allowed them to compete on their home field against the Champions League finalists from the previous season.

These players undoubtedly have their manager’s full support, and both of them and the team should be commended for an outstanding performance that earned all three points.
