Liverpool are back to winning ways after back to back two defeats in all competitions. Mohamed Salah converted the penalty successfully at the 50th minute of the match and it proved to be the winning goal at the end of the match. Liverpool were nowhere near their best in this match.
Pascal Gross committed a bad foul in the penalty box which resulted in the penalty for the Reds. The Egyptian star footballer Mohamed Salah scored from the spot to level his tally of 14 goals with Harry Kane and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. He is surely in the contention to win the Golden Boot in this season.
Brighton’s manager wished to get at least one point from this encounter. Chris Hughton’s plans almost worked despite that bad mistake of Pascal Gross. The home team tried to make a comeback in this contest. The manager of Brighton and Hove Albion brought in Florin Andone and Anthony Knockaert in place of Glenn Murray and Solly March. Jurgen Klopp also brought in James Milner in place of Xherdan Shaqiri to keep the clean sheet.
With this win, Liverpool are now seven points clear at the top of the Premier League. The second placed side Manchester City will face Wolves on Monday to reduce the gap to four.
