Jesse Marsch lavished praise on his players after Leeds United registered a spectacular 2-1 victory at Liverpool on Saturday.
The Reds fell behind early when a defensive mix-up between Alisson and Joe Gomez allowed Rodrigo to open the scoring in the fourth minute.
However, the visitors’ lead didn’t last long as Mohamed Salah equalised by volleying in Andy Robertson’s cross.
The home side threatened to add to the scoreline, but they were denied by the brilliance of goalkeeper Illan Meslier.
And when Leeds got an opportunity in the 89th minute, Crysencio Summerville didn’t make any mistake to fire the winner and send the away support wild.
Marsch was delighted with the performance of his players at Anfield and lavished praise on them for showing ‘real resolve’.
“Meslier needed to make some big saves, but the mentality to stay in the match and see if we could find a way to get three points was really strong.”
They were booed off by the home supporters after a 3-2 defeat against Fulham last Sunday.
However, the Yorkshire outfit produced a great response this weekend, coming away with three points from Liverpool.
Meslier produced a masterclass between the sticks while Brenden Aaronson, Tyler Adams and Summerville were also top of their game.
Leeds have now moved out of the relegation zone with the victory and now have 12 points from 12 matches.
