Jota celebrates after Liverpool beats Leeds 6-1 at Elland Road.

Jota scored for the first time in over a year, and Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez also scored as Liverpool won their second away win in 2023.

Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah scored twice each in Liverpool’s resounding 6-1 triumph over lowly Leeds United on Monday, the Yorkshire club’s biggest home Premier League loss at Elland Road.

Jota scored for the first time in over a year, and Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez also scored as Liverpool won their second away win in 2023.

It now has 47 points from 30 games, nine points behind Newcastle United in fourth place for Champions League participation.

Leeds had chances in the first half, but the defence was far too vulnerable, as it had been in their previous 5-1 home loss to Crystal Palace.

Chelsea is not ‘broken,’ therefore Boehly should address the squad: Lampard Javi Gracia’s side is two points above the relegation zone after 31 games. Just after the break, Leeds winger Luis Sinisterra made it 2-1 before Liverpool scored four more goals.

“We played pretty well in the second half,” Jota told Sky Sports. “We held possession and attempted to put ourselves in advantageous positions.” We scored some fantastic goals.

“It has been a difficult season for myself and the team, so scoring is a relief.” I always want to be involved; I had an assist in the first half as well, but I’d like to score more.”

Salah now has nine goals in six league games against Leeds, a joint Liverpool record with Gordon Hodgson, and has moved to 26 in all competitions for the season after two clinical finishes, the first set up by Jota.

Leeds alleged a handball from Trent Alexander-Arnold in the build-up to Liverpool’s first goal from Gakpo in the 35th minute, but because the fullback was not the scorer, the Video Assistant Referee did not interfere.


It was Liverpool’s first win in six games in all competitions, and while their chances of qualifying for the Champions League look slim, there was some confidence in the performance that had been missing away from Anfield this season.

Liverpool won their fourth away game of the season after leading 2-0 at halftime. Liverpool struggled to create chances in the first half-hour, but once Gakpo put them ahead, they began to rip Leeds apart at will.

Manchester United suffers as a result of reports that the Glazers have abandoned their selling plans.
Salah supplied Alexander-Arnold down the right, and despite the fact that the ball touched his arm, the winger was allowed to continue and offer a tap-in for Gakpo at the back post.

Jota robbed Weston McKennie and led a counter-attack that resulted in Salah’s second goal, before a mistake by Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate allowed Sinisterra to equalise early in the second session.

Leeds may have believed that would be the turning point, but they were unable to keep the visitors at bay in the second half.

Jota restored Liverpool’s two-goal lead after latching onto a fantastic cross from Curtis Jones and sweeping the ball past custodian Illan Meslier, adding a second with a scuffed drive from the edge of the box.

Salah and Nunez added to the anguish on a rapidly deserted Elland Road.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game. Leeds defender Robin Koch remarked, “We started with a clear plan and sought to get them on the counter.”

“But we gave up two goals, and it’s a difficult game against a side like Liverpool.”

“It’s difficult for us, but we have to put this game aside.” We’ve got three big games coming up (against Fulham, Leicester City, and Bournemouth).”
