In just the third minute of Leeds’ first Premier League tie in 16 years, the Yorkshire outfit are behind after conceding a penalty to Liverpool.
Mohamed Salah picked up the ball in the box before wheeling away from his man, the winger let off a strike towards goal, which struck the arm of Robin Koch – on the centre-back’s debut no less.
The referee quickly pointed to the spot, Salah used a powerful long run-up before smashing the ball into the back of the net.
Take a look at the Egyptian superstar’s spot-kick and the incident leading to it below:
Welcome back to the Premier League, #LUFC!
It's the worst possible start as Salah gives #LFC the lead from the spot.
Was it a penalty for handball? ?

This start is about as perfect as Jurgen Klopp’s side can get.
