Jurgen Klopp had a positive idea about his right-backs that he will be performing with full form after his England omission, however, Brighton secured a 3-3 draw. A lead of 2-0 in the first 20 minutes was offered by the Belgian later the Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino scored either side of the half time. Adam Webster, unfortunately, kicked his own goal making their opposition win but Trossard slammed the home making sure to keep the name high for Roberto De Zerbi. Liverpool lost 2 points with disappointment this season.

The Performers:

Roberto Firmino: Playing an important role for Liverpool, Firmino doesn’t look what used to be earlier. Brazilian is the one to bring the Klopp side back in the contest by slamming 2 goals bringing the team 2-2. Later right after halftime, a collect was seen from the substitute Luis Diaz. A standing ovation was seen for Firmino when he was replaced by Diogo Jota.

Leandro Trossard: Trossard was seen as the best in the form in this game, he truly had his game his way. As we say this, Belgian scored 3 left strikes and became the 3rd visiting player to score a hat-trick at Anfield this Premier League. Peter Ndlovu did a treble at Coventry in 1995 and Andrey Arshavin was seen with 4 goals to his name for Arsenal back in 2009. Roberto Martinez must be happy to see Trossard’s form in the early season making it profitable for the team. Trent Alexander-Arnold was in trouble as we were hoping to witness the same.

Luis Diaz: Luis Diaz was seen beginning the game and leaving Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota on the bench even after arriving late this Thursday from his international duty. Summoning Diaz was a smart move as Klopp had to make this decision as Liverpool was down 2-1 in the first half. Luis Diaz did set up the equalizer with a pass to Firmino to scorekeeping Brighton on the back foot for much of the second half.

The Losing side:

Trent Alexander-Arnold: Alexander-Arnold didn’t expect to see this afternoon that did not play in his favor, he tried to avoid spotlights after many discussions to his name. He did fine with corner deliveries in the game however there were some hurried imperfect passes, headers that did not go the way he wants, and some wider clearances which made him weak in the game.

Darwin Nunez: The Uruguayan performer scored 3 goals for Liverpool last time. The Reds were keen to sign Nunez for his epic performance seen for Benfica in April. He did seem unplayable as he opens the door to Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip. The entry here with this game was late off the bench as Liverpool tried to become a winner.

The Defence side:

Alisson Becker: Important saves from Welbeck and Trossard for the first half also could have tried harder for the 2 goals. A deserving hand for the winning team with this amazing performance.

Kostas Tsimikas: Deliveries could have been better, must have tried for the goal later was replaced by Milner.

Joel Matip: Seen better post first half, made a mistake and was towed by Brighton’s early responses.

Virgil van Dijk: Great block at 2-0 down but was slow in the early part of the game although did showcase strength in the second half.
