Happy after scoring a hat trick this Saturday, in Liverpool’s 4-3 victory over Leeds United, Mohamed Salah said that despite the good game, his team suffered a high number of goals. “We shouldn’t have suffered three, but this is the game”, he told the English press after his Premier League debut.
The Egyptian striker ensured victory in the 88th minute by converting his second penalty goal at Anfield Road on Saturday (12). “It’s a difficult team, to be honest. They played a great game. They reacted very well and scored three goals against us, that’s great,” praised shirt 11.
Leeds United returned to the English football elite after 16 years, having been the second division champion the previous season, and showed a good performance on the field. It was the first team since 2008 to climb to the main series and score three goals against the defending champions away from home.
