Liverpool were defeated at home by Brighton at Anfield on Wednesday. Both Liverpool and Brighton & Hove Albion arrived on the back of wins. Liverpool were looking to pick up points after winning their previous two games against West Ham United away and Tottenham Hotspur away, by 3-1 and 3-1 respectively. Brighton & Hove Albion, on the other hand, were coming off the back of a 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur. As it stands, Liverpool are in 4th place on the table and has 40 points while Brighton & Hove Albion sit in 15th with 24 points after 22 matches.

After an uneventful first half, Brighton & Hove Albion continued to apply pressure the second half and were rewarded, beginning with a goal from Steven Alzate, 56 minutes in. They managed to see the game out with a clean sheet and a final score of 1-0.

Both teams used all their substitutes. For Liverpool Divock Origi, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Curtis Jones came on for Xherdan Shaqiri, Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino, while Brighton brought on Adam Lallana, Aaron Connolly and Andi Zeqiri to replace Solly March, Neal Maupay and Leandro Trossard.
