    Liverpool are making it extraordinarily difficult for themselves, it is almost annoying to watch. Some chances are being made and bad decisions at the end scupper the efforts. In fact Leeds could feel unlucky not being one up after a fine, rather speculative effort hit the post with Mignolet well beaten. Leeds have had more of the play in the second half and Liverpool need to buckle down and start working. They are being beaten to the ball and Leeds have a greater impetus in the game. Mane has had only scraps to feed on and has had little impact on the game. 69 minutes gone and no score. This can not surely be the way that Klopp envisaged the game. Liverpool do not need extra time!

    Finally a goal in the 70 + minute mark and in the 81 minute, a first senior team goal for Ben Woodburn. Wonderful moment for him. Liverpool being a little sloppy in possession, almost got caught out but the ball shot harmlessly over the bar. Unnecessarily nervy moment.
