Liverpool keep Premier League title pursuit on track with win at Brighton

When coming up with a list of the more in-form final-third productivity merchants in the Premier League, Joel Matip probably isn’t the name who usually springs to mind.

Maybe that’s overstating it somewhat, but the newest Player of the Month has scored one and assisted twice now in his last five matches and it was he who found the time and clarity in his delivery to help Liverpool open the scoring at Brighton, en route to to 2-0 win.

It ended what had been a rather chaotic opening from the visitors, and it was a largely different game thereafter.

Jurgen Klopp will be happy with that result. Liverpool weren’t at their flowing best. The game was a little stop-start towards the end and the Reds weren’t very clinical in the final third.

Luis Diaz scored another goal to continue his good start at Liverpool and Mo Salah secured the points with a penalty.
