Liverpool and Brighton share the spoils after hard-fought draw

The Reds were prepared to face a stern test from the Seagulls, who have impressed this season. They currently sit in the top four in the Premier League table. However, Jurgen Klopp’s men were not expecting to sit on the back burner as early as the fourth minute.

The visitors opened the scoring, with Leandro Trossard receiving the ball from Danny Welbeck and unleashing a shot into the bottom right corner. The forward took out Alexander-Arnold with a touch, sending the Liverpool right-back in the other direction before putting his effort past Allison.

Trossard was on hand to double the scoring with just 17 minutes on the clock. This came after Alexander-Arnold gave the ball away and failed to track back efficiently to stop the attack. The fast counter saw Solly March play the ball into Trossard from the edge of the area. The Belgian footballer blasted it past Alisson and into the goal.


The Reds began their comeback 33 minutes, with Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah linking well to put the sword to the Brighton defense. A poor touch from Salah put the ball in Firmino’s path after Seagulls goalkeeper Sanchez had rushed out early. The Brazilian wasted no time in chipping it over the onrushing defenders and into the goal.

Firmino scored his second goal of the game in the second half after receiving the ball from Luis Diaz. The Brazilian forward opened himself up in the box before placing it low into the bottom corner.

An own goal from Adam Webster eventually gave the Reds what might have been the winning goal of the game.

However, Trossard was not done with his remarkable showing, and he secured his hat-trick with a powerful shot that Alisson couldn’t keep out. Although the Reds tried to find the winning goal once more, it was not to be, as both sides went on to share the spoils.

Liverpool have now won just two out of their seven league matches this season and are ninth in the table.
