PREMIER LEAGUE: LIVERPOOL VS BRIGHTON

Albion have miraculously stayed unbeaten against Liverpool this season thanks to a shock win at Anfield. Klopp went to Vegas with his team selection last night ,dropping Allison for Kelleher and choosing Phillips in a center back partnership with Henderson. It was Phillips’s failure to clear the ball that led to Alzate’s winner in the 56th minute. I was a bit confused at how the Reds lined up here. They went for an unfamiliar 4-4-2 with Salah and Firmino spearheading the attack. There was no focal point of the attack, Salah was constantly peeling off to the right winger position and Firmino constantly deep in midfield. Well the game against Man City on Sunday may have influenced team selection for Klopp. The introduction of Origi saw the balance return a little to Liverpool. In the end Brighton resorted to crowding the box to great effect. Liverpool restricted to only 1 shot on target the whole match, bested by Brighton’s 3. Sadio Mane sorely missed here.

Trossard was playing fantastic football. Manager Porter saw the vulnerability in the Liverpool backline and encouraged his side to test the inexperienced goalkeeper.
