I mean, judging by the head to head results this should be a stroll. We are in pretty good form but Brighton were quite good against Utd (or were Utd just very poor?), so it could be closer than people think.

Another win and another clean sheet would be great to carry on our perfect start to the season.

Surely two of those were either Cup games when Brighton were on their arse or in like the 80’s.

Brighton are generally decent at home though, away it's a different story.

Brighton relied a lot on feeding long balls to Murray against Utd. If Van Dijk can take care of Murray in the air then I'd be confident of stunting most of what they'll throw our way. 

Going to say it'll be a comfortable 3-0 for us.

This match only goes one way. Brighton will lose probably more than half of their away games but it won't keep $ky from trying to use what will be a routine Liverpool win as the next "This shows that Liverpool's title ambitions are actually realistic" landmark result of the season. Unbearable cunts. I think Klopp has dealt with it very well so far.

Hate when keepers 'win' fouls for charging out their box and cleaning out players. Ryan just clattered in to Firmino and the referee was ready to blow his whistle for a free-kick before Firmino even jumped. 

It's as if it's not a contact sport for keepers and referees are far too lenient towards them. So many goals get disallowed purely because a player accidentally breathes in the vicinity of the keeper.

Brighton did well. One mistake cost them a goal but Liverpool would have found their goal one way or another.

I don't think I'm being "bitter" saying this but the way people are going on about routine Allisson saves as if they're world class and justify his fee is a bit cringe. For example, the commentator on my stream saying that that save from Pascal Gross was worth three points on it's own. Nah mate, if that header finds its way into Liverpool's net it's one of the goalkeeping howlers of the early season I'm afraid. Good save but one that any average Premier League goalkeeper makes.

Not vintage from us again. Most of what we tried didn't come off and it was only that piece of quality from Salah that gave us the three points. In a way, though, it's good to win 1-0. We only did that once last season, and teams don't seem to fold against us at 1-0 in the way certain teams do against our rivals, so for us to prove we can win by that scoreline is a positive.

That does my head in too, but it's not just Alisson that gets that treatment. People used to gush over Mignolet on the rare occasions he'd make a save even if it was literally right at him, but I think most goalkeepers get it to a greater or lesser extent. It's a bit cringe coming from fans, but from a broadcaster's perspective, it makes it seem more exciting if you say "That was a brilliant save!" than if you say "Yeah he saved it, but you'd expect any PL keeper to save that. Nothing to see here." At the end of the day, excitement is what they're trying to convey, so it's understandable.

Liverpool have started well and they look like they're going to really challenge this season but Liverpool fans talking of the title being guaranteed are talking too early in my opinion.

Best Alisson moment was the moment he bamboozled the Brighton attacker.

Yea, that was fine bit of skill there I have to say, any other day and you don't pull it off and it's ends up in the back of the net and you end up looking like a bit of a tit but fair play, nice bit of cool, calm control and for a keeper that's rare to see.. Lets be honest we all like to see things like that when they come off.. looks like Liverpool have found that keeper that gives the defence the confidence it never had at times last season... 

As with last week I didn't think that Liverpool were firing on all cylinders like we know they can do, They played well and were creative but thought Brighton played well enough just to stifle them a little and also did well to keep it down to just the one goal.. Again though despite not being at the top of their game they got the important goal and even more importantly kept the clean sheet, It was another one of those games where the margins were fine and could have ended in a draw last season..

I know it's only early doors and as Klopp said he never heard of anyone that won something for being top after 3 games of the season but points on the board at this stage is going to be vital because a lot of the more influential players like Salah, Kane, Hazard etc may be feeling it a bit come the end of the season after the World Cup tiredness starts to creep in and they may possibly lose a little of that sharpness and maybe even find themselves getting injured at times.. I don't see anyone getting carried away but have a good feeling about Liverpool this season.. They look more solid than previous seasons but the proof of the pudding will be in the eating when the more attacking sides like City rock up to test their title credentials...

I agree about the saves but his all round play is miles better than the other two and they deserves to be picked up on. He did get away with one on the first half today but his all round play on the ball is so much better and will make us a better team

  • The title was changed to Saturday 25th August - Liverpool 2-0 Brighton
  • The topic was unpinned

Another clean sheet :banana:

the improvement defensively from the early parts of last season is incredible really, Van dijk is brilliant and Alisson is looking very good so far. I'm just hoping we can get to around December without having a rough spell like the last couple of seasons we certainly have the personnel to avoid that now.
