Match Report: Brighton 0-1 Liverpool (Watch All Goals)
Mohamed Salah’s penalty extended Liverpool’s lead at the top of the Premier League to seven points after a workmanlike display at Brighton.
Having lost their previous two matches in 2019, the Reds were frustrated in a tight first half at the Amex Stadium.
But Jurgen Klopp’s men restored a seven-point advantage thanks to the excellent Salah, having bided their time in the face of an often-impeccable defensive display from Brighton.
The Egyptian duly lashed the spot-kick left-footed across his body and high into the net for a 17th goal of the season.
Brighton did not manage a shot on target and Liverpool will now wait and see if title-rivals Tottenham and Manchester City can close the gap when they play on Sunday and Monday respectively.
