Liverpool kept their lead intact at the top with a 1-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion  at the American Express Community Stadium. They now have a seven point lead over Manchester City, but the latter are yet to play their game of the weekend.

Here are three things we learned from Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

3. First win of the month

Having lost to both Manchester City in the Premier League and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup this month so far, Liverpool were in danger of spiralling out of control. However, thanks to a penalty from Mohamed Salah, a blunt Liverpool team were still able to take three points from the game, and letting them keep control of the title race.

Chris Houghton’s side showed how to marshall Liverpool’s front three and blunt their chances of having clear opportunities. The team was setup to intensely close down Liverpool and they denied any time on the ball for the opposition attackers. 

If it wasn’t for the unnecessary penalty that they gave away, Brighton could well have come away from this game with at least a point.

Liverpool had the major share of the ball in both halves, but barely did anything with it. In fact, they failed to register a single shot on target in the entire first half. If it wasn’t for Salah’s skills, that drew the foul from Pascal Gross that gave them the penalty, it is unlikely that the Reds could have got the goal they needed to get all three points.
