Liverpool were handed a blow in their pursuit of a top-four finish after Diego Llorente’s late strike earned Leeds a deserved point.
Sadio Mane gave the Premier League champions a first-half lead amid protests against the announced European Super League.
Leeds players came out for their warm-up wearing shirts emblazoned with the slogan “Earn It” under the Champions League logo – a reference to the fact that the proposed 20-club Super League will have 15 permanent members with no relegation.
The result left Liverpool sixth on 53 points from 32 games, one behind fifth-placed Chelsea who have a game in hand and two adrift of West Ham in fourth. Leeds stayed 10th on 46 points.
