FT: Brighton 0-2 Liverpool, Salah scores 20th goal of the season, Diaz also on target

Full Time – Brighton 0-2 Liverpool

Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah’s goals help move Liverpool three points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Goaaaal! Brighton 0-2 Liverpool

Salah doubles Liverpool’s lead from the spot after Bissouma handled Keita’s shot.

Second Half!

We are back for the second 45!

Halftime

Jurgen Klopp’s side are ahead at the break thanks to Luis Diaz’s brave header.

Kops on top

Mane does brilliantly to flick the ball away from Veltman in midfield and run away from the defender, but his shot is tame. Liverpool on top after a difficult start.

Should this have been a red card?

Gooooaaaaal – Brighton 0-1 Liverpool

What a great header from Luis Diaz. He is down hurt, unbelievable bravery from Diaz. What a pass from Joel Matip

Kick Off

We are underway!

Jurgen Klopp is offered a really rather favourable fixture in his attempts to keep up with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.

Klopp’s Liverpool side travel to a Brighton team in no sort of form at all, having lost their last four on the spin.

That’s not to suggest Graham Potter’s outfit do not boast quality, as the thrilling 2-2 draw at Anfield proved earlier this season, but Liverpool will surely fancy their chances of leaving the Amex Stadium with all three points.

There will, however, need to be an improvement on the performances they put out against West Ham and Inter Milan respectively if Liverpool are going to overthrow City.

Still, a win against Brighton would close the gap down to three points ahead of City’s game against Crystal Palace on Monday night, thereby ramping up the pressure.
