But just when it appeared as if Leeds would take a well-deserved point back to West Yorkshire, a loose challenge from record signing Rodrigo resulted in another penalty which Salah tucked away with unerring accuracy.
While Leipzig has lost significant quality in person of Timo Werner (Chelsea) and Patrick Schick (Leverkusen), all hopes remain on Moenchengladbach's shoulders.
LONDON, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- Liverpool have completed the signing of Spain international Thiago Alcantara from Bundesliga side Bayern Munich, announced the English Premier League champions on Friday.
Frank Lampard's expensively assembled Chelsea side also began the new season with three points, winning 3-1 away at Brighton & Hove Albion in the Monday evening kick-off.
"I think it's an amazing feeling. I was waiting for this moment for a long time and I am very, very happy to be here," Thiago told the Liverpool club's website.
"It's an agreement by our clubs and investors. We are expecting to help them get reasonable control of the spending. Besides that, all of us want a more balanced league. Under the cap, the teams are encouraged to pay more attention to their youth training system instead of buying players."
Earlier this month, Huang claimed the title with 8.28m at the 2020 Chinese Athletics Street Tour Nanjing meeting, while Wang finished third at 20 centimeters short.
Thiago also thanked his former club, with which he had spent the previous seven years.
"I just came back from the training camp of the national team and everything is so familiar to me," said the 20-year-old side hitter, who helped China claim the World Cup title a year ago in Japan. "I will work with my teammates and get well prepared for the upcoming games."
