Liverpool's hat-trick hero Mohamed Salah happy with the result against Leeds.

Egypt forward Mohamed Salah says playing without fans is so tough.

Mohamed Salah helped Liverpool get off to a winning start in the Premier League by scoring a hat-trick against newly-promoted Leeds United.

The Reds forward was handed the match ball after the 4-3 encounter at Anfield on Saturday.

Salah's brace from the penalty spot and his thunder strike in the first half as well as a header from Virgil van Dijk helped Jurgen Klopp's Reds grab a win over Marcelo Bielsa's Whites.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the final whistle, the Egyptian reflected on playing behind closed doors amid the COVID-19 chaos.

The 28-year-old said: "Without fans, it's so tough – especially at Anfield, everybody knows that. But it's a good start for us.

"A tough team, they press high as well, so the intensity was really high. We had a good game.

"We shouldn't have conceded three but this is the game, we have to react for that and we did a good job.

"It's a tough team, to be fair. They had a great game. There are no fans but they play, they react really well and they scored three goals against us – that's huge.

"I'm happy about the result and we have to keep on improving and try not to concede as many goals."
