Liverpool 1 Leeds 2: Summerville bags late winner as Whites rise out of drop zone and Reds’ Prem plight continues

L

THIS WAS trick or treat night at Anfeld and Crysencio Summerville walked away with all the goodies

And his 90th minute strike left Jurgen Klopp horror-stricken a couple of days before Halloween.

The German’s side gifted a lifeline to opposite number Jesse Marsch and his struggling Leeds United side.

First thanks to a howler from Joe Gomez.

Then with seconds ticking into time added on diminutive Dutchman Summerville stole in to plunder victory as Liverpool’s season.

Anfield boss Klopp Was looking for a win that would  announce Kop problems were easing, instead they only got worse after the defeat that followed the 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest a week earlier.

Marsch tried to laugh off comparisons between him and the tactically useless American manager Ted Lasso in the build- up to this clash.

Lasso somehow succeeded in the TV show that depicted his success with fictional Prem side AFC Richmond.

He thinks such jibes are unfair yet the defending of his side just 41 seconds in was a true joke.

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson fired forward a long ball for Mo Salah to chase although he had little hope of catching it.

Yet for no reason anyone at Anfield can have imagined Alisson’s opposite number Illan Meslier charged 30 yards from his goal just as Liam Cooper sent back what should have been a simple header to clear the danger.

Meslier was caught in no-man’s land and Salah was able to deliver the shot that a relieved Pascal Struijk just managed to hook off his line.

So, all a bit of a laugh, then.

Except that crazy moment, no doubt based on tension and nerves, had nothing on what happened next with Gomez taking kamikaze defending to a new, surreal level.

Less than three minutes after Meslier’s moment of madness the Liverpool centre back neatly robbed midfielder Brendan Aaronson on his side’s right touchline.

Then, without looking, he sent the ball backwards towards Alisson, who was so stunned by the blunder that he slipped trying to get to the mis – placed pass.
