Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told BBC Live’s coverage of his side’s 6-1 win over Leeds United that his favourite moment of the match was watching his players win the ball back from Georginio Rutter in the 92nd minute.
Leeds suffered a second successive heavy defeat on Monday night to the Reds, conceding six goals after letting five go in against Crystal Palace. The Whites looked beleaguered in defence towards the end of the match at home.
Two for Diogo Jota and Mo Salah, and one apiece from Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo ensured Leeds remain right in the thick of the relegation scrap. How quickly things can turn – looking good after a win over Nottingham Forest.
With all the goals scored, Liverpool continued to push for more and were still working in hard. Football Daily posted a clip of Klopp in awe of his players dispossessing Rutter in the middle of the pitch, crowding the Frenchman out.
Klopp said after the match – as per BBC – that the tackle on Rutter was his best moment of the entire 6-1 bout: “My favourite part was in the 92nd minute we chased the poor boy on the ball from Leeds. Really happy with that game.”

Leeds looked like a team bereft of confidence. The feel-good factor of the Forest win is well and truly gone and we are now right in the mix of relegation. Gracia has won three of his eight league games – winning 10 possible points.
Luis Sinisterra scored again and Max Wober was on the bench and could be in line for a start against Fulham this weekend. But, that is about as far as the positives go. Can Gracia pick this set of players off the floor before then?
