The newly-crowned Liverpool looked on course to win three more points


Liverpool continued to set a Premier League points record with victory over Brighton at Amex Stadium.

The newly-crowned champions looked on course to win three more points with ease when they went up two within eight minutes as Brighton made a nightmare start with Premier League safety sights set.

Naby Keita robbed Davy Propper in a risky spot to set up Mohamed Salah until captain Jordan Henderson of Liverpool immediately swept a superb second from 20 yards to his home.

Nonetheless, when Leandro Trossard fired a crisp finish from the outstanding Tariq Lamptey ‘s cross past Liverpool keeper Alisson, Brighton fought back with real zeal and deserved to pull back a point.

With a few astute substitutes, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp avoided Brighton ‘s advance, and a corner from one, Andrew Robertson, was headed in by Salah for the 19th-league goal of his season.
