Liverpool were stunned by Brighton as the Reds let slip a 2-0 lead to draw the top-flight Seagulls 2-2 at Anfield as Mohamed Salah’s ten-game streak came to an end.
The phrase ‘a game in two halves’ could not have been more apt to describe the game, with the hosts scoring twice in a dominant first half but the visitors returning after the break to claim a point, well that a winner would not have been undeserved.
The Reds took a 2-0 lead thanks to Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane, but were secured just before the half-time break thanks to a superb goal from Seagulls ace Enock Mwepu.
Brighton stepped up their efforts after the break and were by far the better team in the second half, securing the goal their performance deserved thanks to an icy finish from Leandro Trossard.
Salah had entered that game after a streak of 14 goals in his last ten games, but has been kept silent at Anfield. The king of Egypt believed he had put Liverpool back in the lead in the second half to be ruled out for offside.
It wasn’t the only ruled out goal either, with Mane and Trossard both seeing what would have been their second goal in the ruled game after VAR checks.
Liverpool remain second with the point, but Chelsea are now three points clear at the top of the table after a 2-0 victory over Newcastle.
Brighton, meanwhile, are sixth after an impressive start that proved they are no longer Premier League forfeits.
