Liverpool FC is still in the earnings crisis in the English Premier League. After a month-long break in the league, coach Jürgen Klopp’s team had to face Brighton shortly before the end, despite having a home advantage and being in the lead
After an early brace from Leandro Trossard (4th/18th minute), former Bundesliga professional Roberto Firmino scored the equalizer with his two goals (33rd/54th) before Adam Webster scored an own goal in the 63rd minute gave the Reds the lead.
But Brighton didn’t give up and the outstanding Trossard (84th) rewarded himself and his team for a strong fighting performance.
In the 76th minute, Liverpool goalkeeper Alison (76th) prevented the guests from equalizing, but a little later the Brazilian international goalkeeper had no chance. His opposite number Sanchez made up for his own-goal blunder when, in the 91st minute, he clipped an Alexander-Arnold free-kick for a corner with his fingertips. Liverpool have ten points. It was the fourth draw of the season for the Klopp team, with only two wins and one loss. Brighton are currently fourth in the table with 14.
Arsenal FC, on the other hand, consolidated their lead in the table with their seventh league home win in a row. The Gunners beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 (1-0) in the London derby. Led by Gabriel Jesus, who was not considered for the Brazil national team, the home side were the better side, with Thomas Teye Partey (20′), Gabriel Jesus (49′) and Granit Xhaka (67′) scoring the goals.
For the Spurs, who had to play outnumbered after a red card against Emerson Royal for gross foul play from the 62nd minute, England captain Harry Kane scored with a penalty kick (31st) to make it 1-1 in the meantime. The forward set a record: Kane is the first player to score 100 away goals in the Premier League. For Tottenham it was the first defeat after 13 unbeaten league games.
Chelsea won 2-1 (1-1) at Crystal Palace with a goal by Conor Gallagher in the 90th minute. Southampton FC, coached by Ralph Hasenhüttl, lost 2-1 (0-0) to Everton FC.
