/ The Egyptian Liverpool FC star, Mohamed Salah, succeeded on Sunday in putting his team temporarily at the top of the English Premier League, by scoring the valuable goal of the victory over Brighton 2-1 in the thirtieth stage.

Liverpool fell behind to an early and surprising goal by Danny Welbeck after less than two minutes, before Colombian Luis Dias equalized in the 27th minute, and Mohamed Salah gave his team the win midway through the second half.

Liverpool raised its score to 67 points, three points ahead of Arsenal, which will face Manchester City at the latter’s stadium later in a summit match.

Thus, Liverpool regained the tone of victories after losing to Manchester United 3-4 after extra time in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, before activity stopped during the international window, which deprived it of the possibility of achieving a wonderful quadruple in the final season of its German coach, Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool had won the League Cup by defeating Chelsea 1-0 after extra time in late November 2023 and reached the quarter-finals of the European League (Europa League), and is competing strongly for the local title as well.

Brighton surprised the hosts with an early goal after one minute and 27 seconds when Liverpool’s Dutch captain Virgil van Dijk failed to clear one of the balls and it was prepared for Danny Welbeck on the outskirts of the area, so he fired it directly into the roof of the net in his 100th match in the colors of his current team.

The loss is Brighton’s first in the last 4 visits to Anfield, specifically since losing to its rival 1-2 in November 2019.

Liverpool thus maintained its unbeaten record at home in the last 32 matches in various competitions.

MacAllister, one of the stars of the match, said, “We did not start the match properly, but we were facing a great team. But in the end, we succeeded in turning the score around and we are happy.”

Regarding his decisive pass to Salah, he said, “Salah asked me all week to pass the ball to him. We tried in the first half without success before he showed his heel height in the second.”
