“Keita bossed that,” “92 points in July!” – Fans react as Liverpool win on the south coast

Liverpool ended a run of five away games without a win after netting three against Brighton, on a night where a number of Reds shone. 

Brighton 1-3 Liverpool

Premier League, AMEX Stadium
July 8, 2020

Goals: Trossard 45′; Salah 6′, 76′, Henderson 8′

Liverpool made the trek to the south coast to meet Brighton in a fixture which has returned maximum points in each meeting since their promotion in 2017, and history repeated itself once more.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side had gone five away games without scoring but they ended the drought in emphatic fashion with two goals in the opening ten minutes, with Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson reaping the rewards from Naby Keita‘s pressure acts.

The hosts would pull one back on the cusp of half-time thanks to some lovely build-up play, but Salah would restore the two-goal buffer mid-way through the second half to take his season’s tally to 19 in the league.

And the result moves the champions to 92 points with four games of the season remaining.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the victory on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s forum.
