Mohamed Salah stuck twice as holders Liverpool survived a major Champions League scare to defeat Salzburg 4-3 at Anfield.Sadio Mane, Andrew Robertson and Salah goals had seemingly put Jurgen Klopp’s side in complete control in what was their first European game on home soil since triumphing in last season’s competition. They were left stunned, however, when the visitors responded via goals from Hwang Hee-chan, Takumi Minamino and substitute Erling Haaland. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Ox-rated!

Game!9′ Mané25′ Robertson36′ Salah39′ Hwang56′ Minamino60′ Haaland69′ Salah#UCL pic.twitter.com/VuN6bFT3Pl— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) October 2, 2019The visitors served an early warning via Minamino’s long-range shot, yet by the ninth minute the Reds were ahead after Mane drove towards goal down the left before playing a one-two with Roberto Firmino and slotting inside the right post.Robertson doubled the advantage in the 25th minute, finishing a slick move he had started near the halfway line when he swept home Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross from six yards out.Liverpool made it three 11 minutes later and had Salzburg goalkeeper Cican Stankovic to thank as he parried Firmino’s header into Salah’s path and the Egypt forward made no mistake from close range.Salzburg gave themselves some hope six minutes before the break thanks to a superb individual goal from Hwang, who cut inside Virgil van Dijk before firing home.The home side made a complacent start to the second half and they were punished when Minamino sent a rasping volley into the ground and beyond Adrian.That was enough to prompt the introduction of in-form Haaland and he soon had his goal, tapping in from close range for his 15th of the campaign to silence Anfield.But Salah came to the rescue when he latched onto Firmino’s flick-on to have the final say in a pulsating match.What does it mean? Relief for Reds as they escape unscathedThey might have got the result, but Jurgen Klopp will be far from impressed with his team after seeing them surrender a three-goal lead before Salah spared their blushes.After losing to Napoli on matchday one, it has been a somewhat unconvincing start to the defence of their European crown – though it should be said the Reds were mesmeric for much of the opening half here, building on their fine domestic form. Qualifying from this group should still be a formality.Sadio on the Mane against old clubMane took all of nine minutes to remind Salzburg what they are missing with a stunning goal – his seventh of the season in all competitions, The Senegal international scored 31 goals in 59 league starts for the Austrian side, earning himself a Premier League move to Southampton for just £11.8million. The rest is history, of course, but what a bargain fee that looks now.Uncharacteristic lapses from RedsSalzburg might be Europe’s goal kings, having scored 55 times in their 12 previous outings this season, but Liverpool would have expected to keep them at bay at fortress Anfield. The likes of Joe Gomez and Fabinho had nervy moments, while even the usually unflappable Virgil van Dijk was troubled at times.Key Opta facts- Liverpool have won their last 12 home matches in all competitions, their best winning run at Anfield since an 18-game streak between April and November 1985.- Salzburg became only the fourth team to score three goals away at Anfield in the UEFA Champions League (also Barcelona, Chelsea and Real Madrid).- Since the start of the 2017-18 season, Roberto Firmino is the only player to have both scored (14) and assisted (10) at least 10 goals in the Champions League.- Salzburg’s two Champions League matches this season have seen 15 goals (9 scored, 6 conceded), more than any other team.- Andrew Robertson is the first Scotsman to score for Liverpool in European competition since Gary McAllister in the 2001 UEFA Cup final.What’s next?A trip to Genk on October 23 in what is the first of back-to-back Champions League matches against the Belgian side awaits Liverpool, who return to Premier League action against Leicester City on Saturday.

The work was originally exhibited by the notorious art collective at the London Institute of Contemporary Arts in 1976.Back then, it also included rusty knives, used syringes and sanitary towels, and bloodied hair, while prostitutes were asked to walk around the gallery and mingle with guests.The collective’s members, including Cosey Fanni Tutti – who features in many of the pornographic pictures – and Genesis P-Orridge, claimed that they were making a comment on art as a form of prostitution.But the group was denounced in the House of Commons as “wreckers of civilisation”, while MPs questioned the abuse of public money and how exactly it was allowed to go ahead.The collective, which was founded in Hull, later performed under the name Throbbing Gristle, a pioneering noise band with a repertoire that featured a song about the Moors Murderers. There are still a couple of pieces that would outrage people, but now it is what you see on social media most of the timeDavid Sinclair, Humber Street Gallery curator Hull is spending more than £30 million on a year of events and hopes to attract one million visitors.The city will also host the Turner Prize as part of the celebrations. Martin Green, chief executive of Hull 2017, said: “All those people who come will spend money here and stay, drink and shop here. So this is great, world-class culture being used as a regenerative and economic boost to the city.”The exhibition is open until March 22 at the Humber Street Gallery in Hull. David Sinclair, the curator at the Humber Street Gallery, said the show, which took two years of planning, was a “real insight into COUM and their journey to Throbbing Gristle”.But he admitted that some pieces were still likely to cause outrage. “There are explicit content signs up and there are a couple of pieces that require parental consent, but you put it in a historical context and understand it is 40 years ago,” he said.“It would have been outrageous at the time and there are still a couple of pieces that would outrage people, but now it is what you see on social media most of the time.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
