Liverpool got back to winning ways thanks to Mohamed Salah‘s penalty and fans were simply delighted to rediscover form against Brighton.
Brighton 0-1 Liverpool
Premier League, AMEX Stadium

Goals: Salah pen 50′
The Reds were suffering with a handful of absences, but getting back on track in the Premier League was the only outcome worth thinking about after back-to-back league and cup defeats.
Jurgen Klopp‘s team dominated long stretches but found it hard to break down a very organised and resolute Brighton side.
Mohamed Salah won and converted a penalty early in the second half to put the Reds ahead and they saw out the game with customary conviction to, temporarily at least, stretch their lead at the top.
It’s a seven-point lead once more for the Reds and a return of confidence was apparent among supporters after the whistle.
Liverpool dominated possession, but fans were critical of a lack of one-dimensional play, particularly through midfield, as the Reds struggled to break down Brighton
Frustrating half for #LFC and that frustration was starting to tell. Brighton have been very impressive in keeping their shape and getting back quickly when they lose the ball.

Poor from Henderson so far – over hit balls, failure to open his body to the space behind, happy to play the way he’s facing with better options on around him. Needs to raise his level to help break down a well disciplined Brighton.
