(CNN)Mo Salah scored a hat trick to secure a 4-3 victory for English Premier League champion Liverpool in a breathtaking opening day match with Marcelo Bielsa's swashbuckling Leeds United side at Anfield on Saturday.

The away side came from behind three times and looked set to be earning a precious point until Salah converted an 89th-minute penalty after Leeds' club record signing Rodrigo fouled Fabinho to concede the spot kick.

Both sides were showing defensive frailty and it was another indifferent clearance from a free kick that afforded Salah the opportunity for his second goal, controlling quickly before powering his shot into the top left of the Leeds net.

The second half was a calmer affair, with Leeds matching Liverpool for possession and deservedly leveling through Klich's fine strike until striker Rodrigo, making his debut, mistimed his challenge to concede a needless penalty that Salah was never going to miss.

It is the second time Lacazette has scored the first goal of the Premier League season, achieving the feat in 2017-18 against Leicester City.
