Jesse Marsch had wished for a show of unity and intent to lift the clouds hanging over his Leeds reign. The under-pressure manager got more than he could possibly have imagined at Anfield where Crysencio Summerville, on the eve of his 21st birthday, delivered Leeds’ first win against Liverpool in 21 years.
The Dutch winger pounced in the 89th minute to condemn Liverpool to a first home league defeat since March 2021. He lifted the load on Marsch and his team out of the relegation zone in the process. It was no more than Leeds deserved as they savoured a first league victory since beating Chelsea in August. Illan Meslier was inspired in the visiting goal but this was a supreme collective effort that supported their manager’s belief that his team are on the right path.
