Liverpool hosted Brighton at Anfield in the 30th round of the English Premier League. The Merseysiders needed to win, especially considering that Manchester City and Arsenal were playing each other later in the evening.

The beginning of the match was extremely unexpected for the hosts. Just 2 minutes into the game, Danny Welbeck put the visitors ahead. In the middle of the first half, Luis Diaz restored parity, and the teams went into halftime with the score level.

In the second half, the Reds steadily increased the pressure on the opponent's goal and achieved their goal. In the 65th minute, Mohamed Salah, assisted by Alexis Mac Allister, put the hosts ahead. A few minutes later, Diaz found the net again, but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review.

That's how it ended - a narrow, hard-fought victory for Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp's team topped the Premier League table, but their main rivals would start their head-to-head clash at 5:30 PM Central European Time.
