DIEGO Llorente's late header rescued a deserved point for Leeds in a 1-1 home Premier League draw against Liverpool last night.

The Spain defender powered home Jack Harrison's corner with three minutes left to cancel out Sadio Mane's first-half opener for Liverpool.

It was Llorente's first goal for Leeds and it denied Jurgen Klopp's side the win that would have lifted them back into the top four.

Where Klopp's side will finish this season and what it will mean is anyone's guess after the European Super League dropped its bombshell on Sunday.

But, as it stands, Liverpool's Champions League hopes were dealt a blow.

Several hundred fans, including some Liverpool supporters, gathered outside Elland Road before kick-off in protest at the Super League proposals.

The Leeds players also made a clear statement in the warm-up, as they wore t-shirts with 'Football is for the Fans' written on the back.

Liverpool swarmed all over their opponents in the opening exchanges. Thiago Alcantara's swerving drive was tipped over the crossbar, while Diogo Jota's close-range effort was blocked.

Leeds created their first real chance in the 24th minute when Kalvin Phillips' lovely weighted pass sent Patrick Bamford clear on goal, but Alisson produced a crucial block.

But Liverpool carried the greater threat and were rewarded with the opening goal in the 31st minute.

Trent Alexander-Arnold charged in behind on to Jota's superb through ball and squared the ball for Mane to side-foot home his 13th goal of the season in all competitions.

Firmino was denied by Illan Meslier's near-post save at the start of the second period and Jota headed narrowly over from the subsequent corner.

But the home side soon stepped up their pursuit of an equaliser.

Alexander-Arnold escaped a penalty appeal against him for handball, before Tyler Roberts and Harrison combined brilliantly in the box, but Alisson saved with his legs.

Leeds continued to dominate, with Bamford's fine touch and volley striking the crossbar and Alisson saving again from Roberts.

But Llorente rose highest to send a thumping header from Harrison's corner into the roof of the net to equalise in the 87th minute.
