Leeds beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield to climb out of the bottom three

And Leeds, who took the pressure off boss Jesse Marsch, aptly kicked off Whigfield’s ‘Saturday Night’ in their dressing room after the game.

Leeds shared a video on Twitter of goalkeeper Illan Meslier and Summerville interviewed by Sky Sports after the famous victory.

In the background, you could hear the 1994 No. 1 hit playing near full volume.

Marsch’s men haven’t had much to cheer about lately as they entered the clash with Liverpool in 18th place.

They had been winless since the third week of the season in August to leave the American gaffer hanging on to a job.

But after shooting all the way to 15th in the table – and just four points behind the Reds – the Leeds players celebrated in brilliant fashion.


The Summerville match winner, who turns 21 on Sunday, told Sky Sports: “It’s a huge moment for me and my family.

“Scoring at Anfield is a big moment for me. It happened so fast.

“When you’re in the box, you have to think fast. It just happened.

“When I was young I played for Feyenoord. It was always my dream to play in the Premier League, but scoring the winner at Anfield is a dream for every player.

“My family is in Holland but I will visit them tomorrow. My birthday [on Sunday] it’s going to be special!”

Meslier commented: “I’m glad we can bring the three points back to Leeds.

“Everyone said we had nothing to lose, but we came up with a plan. It’s very difficult to play against this team, but our counterattack was very good.

Incredibly, Leeds inflicted a first defeat at Anfield on Virgil van Dijk, with the Dutch defender unbeaten in 70 games as a Liverpool player before the game.
