Liverpool Held To Draw By Leeds

After Sadio Mane had given Liverpool the lead one minute after the half-hour mark, Diego Llorente’s equalizer three minutes from time denied Liverpool a place in the top four of the Premier League with six games to go – as uncertainty reigns over what that would mean following the announcement of the European Super League.

Liverpool are one of 12 clubs to agree to join a breakaway ESL, and UEFA has said it could ban the clubs from European competition for their defection.

Fans of Leeds and other clubs gathered outside Elland Road to stage a protest – during which a Liverpool shirt was burned – and a plane flew over the stadium displaying an anti-Super League message.

Liverpool host Newcastle in an early kick-off on Saturday, while Leeds welcome Manchester United to Elland Road the following day.
