“Boss three points” “One of Coutinho’s finest ever performances” – Fans on Brighton 1-5 Liverpool

Liverpool were in sensational form as they romped to a 5-1 win away to Brighton on Saturday afternoon, leaving the travelling Kop in raptures.

Brighton 1-5 Liverpool

Premier League, Amex Stadium
December 2, 2017

Goals: Murray (pen) 51′; Can 30′, Firmino 31′, 48′, Coutinho 87′, Dunk (OG) 89′

Following their convincing 3-1 win away to Stoke City on Wednesday night, the Reds produced a stunning performance to take all three points on the south coast.

A brace from Roberto Firmino, goals from Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho and a Lewis Dunk own goal put Jurgen Klopp‘s side on their way to a stunning victory.

Klopp made a series of changes to his starting lineup, including a makeshift back three of Can, Dejan Lovren and Georginio Wijnaldum, and was rewarded with a fine display only hampered by a questionable penalty call.

Here’s how supporters saw Liverpool’s 5-1 win in East Sussex on Facebook, Twitter and our forums.


Coutinho came in for considerable praise…

“Coutinho really is quite good at this football thing isn’t he?”

Klopp’s rotation was widely lauded…

“Who’d of guessed playing 2 midfielders in defence would be better than the normal CBs?”

And Liverpool’s display was deemed “truly excellent”…

“Knew we would bang this bunch.

Never in doubt.”

“I thought Brighton didn’t concede hardly any goals at home? Now they’ve faced a proper boss team and they’ve been well and truly spanked.

No Salah goals and we still bang in 5.”
