Battle Of The Champions, Gameweek One.

Leeds after a 16 year long hiatus from Premier League football faced the   defending champions Liverpool away at Anfield. The match seemed like another customary 3 points for the Merseyside club but the Bielsa lead Leeds turned the match on its head by getting one goal back, every time Liverpool scored a goal. They managed to equalize at the 66th minute mark making it 3-3 and the match was heading towards a draw but Rodrigo’s lunge on Fabinho in the penalty box gave Liverpool the penalty in the penultimate moments of the game, which Mohammed Salah converted to complete his hat-trick and take Liverpool to all the 3 points on the first matchday.
