Liverpool defender Joel Matip delighted with goal in Leeds rout

Liverpool defender Joel Matip was delighted after scoring in their rout of Leeds United.

The Reds won 6-0 on Wednesday night.

Matip crowned one of his line-breaking dribbles from the back with a goal as he netted the Reds' second in their 6-0 win.

“I went forward and Mo (Salah) gave to me just a brilliant pass," Matip recalled to Liverpoolfc.com post-match.

“I didn't have to stop at all, I just could continue my run and it was the best pass. I didn't have to think a lot because the ball directly came in front of me and I am happy that after a few tries, the ball finally goes in!"

Matip also said: "We know Leeds is always a hard challenge with the way they play and the quality they have, but we did it good over the 90 minutes and yeah, it was a wonderful night I would say.

Yeah, they have a really special kind of [way of] playing but it works for them and with the quality they have they are a threat for every team. It's quite hard to get adjusted but if you use it right, you can also have success with it.
