Jamie Redknapp praised Liverpool for their ‘fantastic’ and ‘wonderful’ performance in the 3-0 win over Leeds at Elland Road.
The Reds managed to weather an early storm before Mohamed Salah gave them the lead after 20 minutes. That was followed by goals from Fabinho and Sadio Mane in what turned out to be a comfortable win.
Impressed, Redknapp believed that ‘it was too easy for Liverpool’ and that they ‘outclassed’ Leeds – who suffered another heavy defeat at the hands of a ‘Top 6’ side.

The former Reds midfielder said after the game on Sky Sports: “Liverpool was fantastic both as a team and individually. They were magnificent. They showed class, quality, how to play against a team man who flags you.
“Thiago was incredible today. The first 20 minutes Liverpool dug deep and then the second half was fantastic.
“It could have been more, Leeds was outclassed. They are a joy to watch, but sometimes you have to change it. Bielsa did a great job, but there are times when you get outclassed. It was too easy for Liverpool to open them.’
Despite the game being overshadowed by Harvey Elliott’s horrific injury, Jurgen Klopp was pleased with his team’s performance, but admitted there is still ‘room for improvement’.
The Liverpool boss said: ‘We were really good today, we played a top game. With Harvey out and everyone in shock, we lost the rhythm but still controlled the game. We’ve given them too many set pieces, but who cares?

“In the end 3-0 is a top result, we are not so greedy to say that we should have scored 5 or 6 goals. We had a lot of shots, but not good enough. We have room for improvement, but the football we played was exceptional.’
Liverpool are now unbeaten from their first four league games and top the league table on 10 points alongside Manchester United and Chelsea.
Klopp’s team will receive AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday evening and will welcome Crystal Palace at Anfield next weekend.
