Brighton 2-2 Liverpool: Late Lewis Dunk goal denies Reds

Liverpool were held against Brighton after Lewis Dunk netted a second-half equalizer to earn his team a point at the Amex Stadium.

Brighton managed to rescue one point in an entertaining match in the Premier League at the Amex Stadium on Sunday. Jurgen Klopp’s side now has 17 points after 8 matches, while Brighton has 16 points.

Liverpool started the game slowly and Brighton scored in the 20th minute through Adingara. He pinched the ball off Mac Allister following a sloppy pass from van Dijk and guided the ball beyond an out-of-position Alisson from long range. This was the seventh time this season, Liverpool has conceded the first goal.

Liverpool managed to equalize against the run of play in the 40th minute. Szoboszlai, Diaz, and Nunez combined to set up Salah, who fired a clinical low shot into the bottom corner.

Just before half-time, Liverpool won a penalty after Szoboszlai was pulled down by the Brighton defender. Mohamed Salah scored his second goal in this match. The Egyptian now has scored against Brighton more than any other Reds player in history.

Gravenberch had a brilliant chance to score the third goal from Szoboszlai’s cross. But he somehow crashed the ball against the bar at the far post.

Brighton scored the equalizer against Liverpool in the 78th minute through Lewis Dunk. The defender scored in from close range after Robertson moved his leg out of the way of March’s free kick from the left.

Joao Pedro could score the winning goal for Brighton against Liverpool in the 84th minute, but he sent his shot over from eight yards out.
