Liverpool had 68 games unbeaten at Anfield when they lost to Burnley (0-1) two weeks ago. Now, however, he has fallen for two games in a row in his own stadium after the surprise that Brighton (0-1) has given against the 'reds' in a new day of the Premier League. Liverpool cannot find themselves: where they were stronger, they are more vulnerable now. On Sunday he receives Manchester City in his fiefdom and Guardiola's are seven points apart with one game less. It's the last train for the Premier League.

Alzate's goal came in the second half, almost on the rebound, breaking a statistic that lasted almost three decades. Liverpool had not lost in the last 12 games against Brighton in all competitions (10 wins, 2 draws). But a good play from Trossard left the ball to the midfielder 'seagull' and he kicked to beat Kelleher. Yes, you have read Kelleher right. Klopp found one more bad news on defense. Other. Without his four starting centers, the goalkeeper was still missing to fall. In the morning Alisson woke up ill and was unable to make himself available at Anfield, so his position was taken by the young Kelleher.

Liverpool tried to no avail. More than 10 shots in the whole game but just one on goal. The absence of Mané, injured, was very heavy. Brighton held on in defense led by an immeasurable Webster, with Robert Sánchez in goal and with Bissouma covering the entire midfield. A victory that takes the Southerners 10 points away from relegation.
