Brighton's game plan of sitting deep meant the visitors dominated possession without any cutting edge before Pascal Gross hauled down Salah in the box and undid Chris Hughton's preparations.

Liverpool's 2-1 loss at City proved their first of a stunning Premier League campaign, and prompted an FA Cup loss at Wolves.

The Liverpool forward scored his 14th Premier League goal of the season from the spot-kick against Brighton and Hove Albion as the Reds claimed their first win in 2019.

The summer signing managed to thwart Glenn Murray, while Mohamed Salah scored a second-half victor to leave Liverpool FC with a seven-point advantage over Manchester City ahead of the defending champions' home clash against Wolves on Monday night.

"You have to be creative against a really good organised side with the counter-attack threat in your mind - plus the long balls that are always 50 per cent situations".

Notable admirers included team-mate Andy Robertson, "For somebody playing out of position, he covered so well, he cleared away and had so many good blocks".

That's seen a £15m price tag put on his head, but he won't have impressed Klopp with his defending against the Reds on Saturday.

The away crowd, believing he went down too easily, went on to boo Salah, with parts of the media drawing attention to recent penalty calls in his favour.

"It was our best game in the Premier League so far, and hopefully we will continue at the same level as of now".

"On the balance of play I thought we deserved to get something from it".
