Liverpool 0-1 Brighton Highlights: Steven Alzate finishes off incredible team goal

Liverpool lost 0-1 to Brighton at home in their Premier League clash at Anfield last night. Steven Alzate’s goal in the second half proved to be the match-winner for the Seagulls, as the defending champions have now lost back to back home games in the English top division.

Liverpool dominated possession throughout the game but it was Brighton who had the bigger, and better chances and they eventually registered themselves on the score sheet when Steven Alzate applied the finishing touches on a magnificent passing move.

Brighton put on a display of well-coordinated passing to feed their chief creative outlet Leandro Trossard, who found Alzate in the box for him to slot the ball home. It was scruffy contact from Alzate, as the ball ricocheted off him into a teammate, and then back to him before it eventually went in.

Liverpool v Brighton starting lineups

Liverpool failed to draw themselves level, while Brighton could not get themselves a bigger lead despite getting chances. Caoimhin Kelleher kept out Graham Potter’s team at numerous occasions to make sure that Liverpool kept themselves in the game, but it was not enough as Jürgen Klopp’s team have hit a screeching halt in the title race while rivals Manchester City and Manchester United go rampaging ahead.

It was a huge result at both ends of the table, as Brighton claimed a very important win at Anfield, which is a fortress no more: Liverpool have now lost back to back home games after being unbeaten for 68 games at home in the Premier League over a span of two seasons.

Fourth-placed Liverpool welcome leaders Manchester City on Sunday, seven points off the pace having played an extra game. Brighton, now 10 points clear of the bottom three, go to Burnley on Saturday.
