Liverpool roar back to beat LASK with Nunez, Diaz and Salah on target


It felt as though it was going to be a long evening for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side as LASK took the lead in just the 14th minute through the bright Florian Flecker, but an important second-half comeback followed to ensure that the Reds got their UEFA Europa League campaign off to a strong start away from home. Darwin Nunez scored from the penalty spot before Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah netted.

Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah were all on target as Liverpool once again came from behind to beat LASK 3-1 and get their UEFA Europa League Group E campaign off to a positive start in Austria.
Jurgen Klopp made 11 changes to the side that won 3-1 at Wolves at the weekend and the visitors took a long time to settle and find their rhythm.

LASK rarely threatened but stunned the Merseysiders on 14 minutes when Florian Flecker sizzled a stunning strike into the far corner.

Liverpool dominated the first 45 minutes, but struggled to carve out clear-cut opportunities, although Nunez was unfortunate to see a close-range header brilliantly kept out by Tobias Lawal.
The Reds have grown accustomed to trailing this term, but once again found a way back to triumph for the fourth time in their last five outings.
First Nunez powered home a soft 56th-minute penalty following a foul on Diaz, before the latter slammed home a first-time finish from Ryan Gravenberch’s lovely cross seven minutes later.

Substitute Salah then made sure of the points with a neat finish two minutes from time.
The result means Liverpool remain unbeaten this term as they return to Premier League action at home to West Ham on Sunday. The Reds’ next match in the UEFA Europa League is on October 5 when they entertain Union SG.
