For Liverpool, this is the next setback after the 1: 3 bankruptcy of the Brentford club.
The Reds suffered a 3-0 defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion in their second successive away game and saw Roberto De Zerbi’s side move up the table. Liverpool ranks eighth, while Brighton ranks seventh, two points behind.
The home team got off to a better start. Brighton practiced shooting the ball into the penalty area from close range by Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson, but one of the defenders intervened decisively (8 ‘).
Towards the end of the first half there is a lot of action in the Liverpool penalty area. Alisson tackles opponent March on the sixteenth (40). Referee Darren England then points the point. But after the VAR took control, the penalty didn’t last, Mars was offside when Lallana crossed the ball.
Brighton gets off to a great start after the break
Soon after switching sides, Brighton stabbed – this time the strike counted. After a construction error by the “Reds”, March completed a clean counterattack to make it 1-0 (47). Just a few minutes later, Marsh put together his double combination. The English winger hits the right corner from a distance of 14 meters (53).
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reacted and made four player changes as a result. But even this tactical trick does not work. Danny Welbeck (81′) gives Liverpool the third goal to make it 3-0.
Everton’s negative trend never ends
City rivals FC Everton likewise shine in a duel against Southampton.
The “Toffees” lose their game 1: 2 and are still deep in the cellar of the table.
Meanwhile, Leicester City suffered its fourth consecutive defeat (0:2) against promoted Nottingham Forest. Wolverhampton Wanderers scored important points in their battle against relegation in a narrow 1-0 win over West Ham United.
