Surprise Home Draw As Brighton Came From 2-Goal Deficit To Level At Anfield

Posted by

In an action-packed game at Anfield, Brighton came back from two goals down to earn a merited point and deny Liverpool victory.

After Alisson had denied Solly March at the opposite end following Leandro Trossard’s defence-splitting pass, captain Jordan Henderson put the Reds ahead from 18 yards.

After a cross from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, on for the injured Naby Keita, Yves Bissouma, making his first appearance since September after recovering from a knee injury, had an effort tipped on to the post before Sadio Mane headed Liverpool into a 2-0 lead.

Brighton’s comeback began with Enock Mwepu’s first Premier League goal, a fantastic 25-yard effort that fooled Alisson. Graham Potter’s team were outstanding, and they drew level when Trossard slid home following an assist from Adam Lallana, a former Liverpool player.

Mane and Mohamed Salah both scored either side of halftime in a thrilling game, but both tries were called out for handball and offside, respectively. Brighton thought they had won it in a frantic conclusion when Trossard scored in front of The Kop, but the goal was ruled out for offside.
