Liverpool laboured but Mo Salah’s 29th goal in 29 Anfield appearances was enough to see off a determined Brighton
And with that, this MBM reaches its natural end. A great day for Liverpool as they make it three wins from three, even if the performance was a little stodgy. A disappointing one for Brighton, but they’ll take great heart going forward from a fine performance. All that’s left is to point you in the direction of Paul Wilson, who was at Anfield. Here’s his report. Nighty night!
Chris Hughton speaks! “I am proud but disappointed as well. You don’t get too many opportunities to get something from the game. We had chances, and I though we finished really strong. We won’t have many better opportunities. Most people would have expected Liverpool to push on, but we got stronger as the game went on. If we were a little more clinical we’d have got something. It was a poor goal, but it’s important to move on as quickly as possible. The team could have buckled but they didn’t. It’s a very difficult division, and we’ve been very good in our last two games, so it’s not a bad thing to be good against Manchester United and Liverpool! If we get that level of performance, we’ll be fine.”
