The Reds were worthy 3-0 winners in a game which saw Pascal Struijk sent off for the hosts. Here we rate the Whites players man for man.
Illan Meslier – made some good saves to keep it to three 7
Luke Ayling – sloppy at times when Leeds were but stuck at it and finished the game as an emergency centre-back, where he might be needed on Friday 6
Diego Llorente – booked shortly before succumbing to another muscle injury, he found it hard against Liverpool' s fast and fluid forwards 5
Liam Cooper – booked early on, he too struggled to contain the Reds 5
Junior Firpo – with Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold down his side, it was always going to be his hardest Premier League game 5
Kalvin Phillips – ran hard throughout and did his best to stem the tide 7
Raphinha – with his team under the cosh he was unable to have much impact 6
Stuart Dallas – blameless in the defeat 6
Rodrigo – an early miss and he let Joel Matip go to create the opening goal 5
Jack Harrison – threatened at the odd incision but made way for Dan James 6
Patrick Bamford – his long-range effort when he was basically playing as a midfielder showed Leeds's spirit 6.
Pascal Struijk (for Llorente, 33) – sent off but it looked a harsh decision 6
Tyler Roberts (for Rodrigo, 46) – steered a second-half shot wide but he came into a very tough situation 5
Dan James (for Harrison, 68) – showed real willingness but the game had gone when he was introduced for his debut 6
