Valiant Brighton fight back to draw at Liverpool
Brighton & Hove Albion fought back from two goals down to earn a surprise 2-2 Premier League draw at Liverpool on Saturday, as Enock Mwepu and Leandro Trossard spoiled what would have been a perfect week for the Merseyside club.
The result ended Liverpool’s four-game winning run in all competitions and left them second in the standings on 22 points from 10 games, three behind leaders Chelsea.
Brighton provisionally stayed sixth on 16 points.
Following a 5-0 drubbing of Manchester United on Sunday and Wednesday’s 2-0 League Cup win at Preston North End, Liverpool were full of confidence and early goals from Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane put them in control.
