Full-Time Score: 3-3
This afternoon, Liverpool will face Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield in their return to Premier League action.
After games against Chelsea and Wolves were postponed due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, it has been almost a full month since Liverpool played in the Premier League.
Following the hiatus for international action, this afternoon’s match marks the club’s first outing since Jurgen Klopp’s team defeated Ajax 2-1 in the Champions League on September 13.
Paul Gorst, Ian Doyle, and Theo Squires will all be at Anfield for the 3 o’clock start to offer you team news, analysis, and reaction in addition to live updates on the play.
The following players are on the Liverpool squad: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Tsimikas, Fabinho, Henderson, Thiago, Salah, Carvalho, and Firmino.
Alternate names: Adrian, Gomez, Milner, Elliott, Jota, Diaz, Nunez, Arthur, Phillips
Team Brighton: Caicedo, Welbeck, Caicedo, Estupinan, Veltman, March, Mac Allister, Webster, Dunk, and
Alternates include Steele, Lamptey, Colwill, Lallana, Sarmiento, Enciso, Undav, Mitoma, and Gilmour.
After the game, Jurgen Klopp said:
“The level of confidence is really high. In our situation, building on confidence is necessary. It was clear that the first and second goals were ineffective for that.
“Brighton’s setup caught us off guard. We didn’t know what they would do [under the new boss].”
The threat level for Trent Alexander-Arnold each week increases for Liverpool
Fans of the story were rubbing their hands together in excitement, according to Ian Doyle.
Only a few minutes remained, and after Fabinho had been thrown to the ground about 25 yards from the Brighton & Hove Albion goal, the setting was perfect for Trent Alexander-Arnold to cap off a trying week with a memorable accomplishment.
However, it was maybe a fair assessment of the afternoon for Alexander-Arnold and Liverpool in general when Robert Sanchez, the goalkeeper for Brighton, blocked his curling free-kick at full stretch.
Let’s be blunt about it. The right back had a poor performance in this match, and it was indicative of Liverpool’s terrible performance overall, which saw the visitors, who were appearing in their first game under new manager Robert De Zerbi, give Jurgen Klopp’s team the runaround.
Regarding Liverpool’s loss, Roberto De Zerbi “Our performance in the contest was excellent.
“Although we played at Anfield, we had the opportunity to score more goals. I am aware of how challenging it is here.”
