Liverpool, Top of the Table | Liverpool back at the top of the table: – Have seriously taken command

LIVERPOOL – BRIGHTON 2-1:

Brighton got a dream start to the game when Welbeck fired them into the lead before two minutes had been played, but in familiar style, Jürgen Klopp’s men fought back to secure the three points.

Scores from Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah turned the game around for the Reds and ensured that Liverpool took over the top of the table from Arsenal.

The aforementioned Arsenal visit the Etihad for the top-flight clash against Manchester City later on Sunday. The result of that match could have a huge impact on the title fight.

– Liverpool have seriously taken command in the battle for the league title, and are putting pressure on the other teams, summarizes Viaplay’s Andreas Toft after the match.

Nightmare start

Liverpool have had a habit of going behind early this season, and today’s game was no exception.

Less than two minutes had been played when the ball fell to Danny Welbeck in the box, and the Englishman took care of the opportunity and sent Brighton into an early lead.

– It’s a clean hit with the ankle. He whips it up in the far corner, was Pål André Helland’s verdict during the break.

The home side did not seem to be affected by the early cold shower, and produced chances on a regular basis.

The equalizer came after about half an hour played, when Luis Diaz appeared in the right place at the right time in the field and poked the ball into the goal.

Canceled scoring

In the second half, “Brighton killer” Mohamed Salah took charge and sent the Reds into the lead. The score was his ninth against today’s opponent in the Premier League.

Former Manchester United player Roy Keane was impressed by both the finish and the pass from MacAllister up front:

– MacAllister is such a smart footballer. I am incredibly impressed with him. Salah’s first touch is also beautiful. It’s sexy football, this, Keane commented on the BBC’s broadcast.

A short time later, Salah took on the role of court master and served up Luis Diaz, who easily scored his second of the day.

At least he thought so, but after a VAR check, the refereeing team concluded that the Colombian was narrowly offside, and the score did not stand.

Despite some Brighton dangers towards the end, Liverpool managed to pull off the victory, taking over the top of the table from title rivals Arsenal.
