Liverpool vs Brighton, Premier League

Brighton and Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton was disappointed his team could not land another blow on a Premier League heavyweight in their 1-0 loss at Liverpool.

But it was the kind of hard-fought three points that Liverpool will need to pick up throughout this season if they are to mount a real challenge to Manchester City in the title race.

It was hardly vintage Liverpool, with Brighton fresh from their victory over Manchester United last week, well-organised at the back and frequently frustrating Jurgen Klopp's front three.

Speaking at his pre-match news conference before Liverpool FC's clash with Brighton on Saturday, Klopp said: "Dejan is coming closer but he is not really around team training in the moment".

"At that stage you can crumble a little bit, particularly here with the quality they've got, but we stuck in there".

"You have to learn from it, but it is a soft goal".

"I'm not 100 per cent sure what he is doing today because we are the day before the game, so he will not be involved in that [Brighton] game".

Early in the second half Anthony Knockaert sliced wide as Brighton went in search of an equaliser, while Alisson had to be at his best to keep out substitute Pascal Gross' header.

"Over 90 minutes you know they'll have chances, we had chances as well".

The Reds played a four-man backline, but both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson played most of the game as wing-backs or even as wingers at times. They made changes towards the end of the game to get that extra goal - but we finished really strong and we won't have many opportunities like that. So much positivity around here at the moment, and I like that, but we have to be awake and ready to work.
