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.

“We used our skills to cause them problems, we could have scored more and in the end we used set-pieces which is fine by me.
“It is not like riding a bike, you can lose something in pre-season and it takes time to all come together again. I am really positive about this game.
“Leeds will have a good season if they can keep up that intensity and they did it in the Championship with more games so why not?”
