Premier League champions Liverpool started their title defence with an impressive 4-3 win over newly promoted Leeds United. Jurgen Klopp's side opened the scoring through Mohamed Salah's early penalty, after the Egyptian was brought down inside the box.
Leeds equalized through Jack Harrison, who was released down the left by a sublime ball by Kalvin Philips. The Reds then restored their lead through Virgil van Dijk, who nodded home Andrew Robertson's corner.
Marcelo Bielsa's side then equalized through Patrick Bamford, who capitalized on a defensive mistake by Van Dijk. Salah then restored Liverpool's advantage after smashing home a perfect volley from inside the box.
The newly promoted side equalized once more through Mateusz Klich, but Leeds' effort went in vain as Salah bundled home another penalty in the 88th minute to seal the three points for the Anfield outfit.
Twitter, as you would expect, exploded after a phenomenal game of football. Here are the best tweets:
