"We didn't concede a goal, nothing negative about that". I think the two teams can be compared in this way; both them have very fast transition, with very fast players up front.

"He's been brilliant since he came in", Robertson told Liverpool's official website, with Alisson's footwork - most notably an impudent dink over Brighton forward Anthony Knockaert - having also caught the eye.

Sadio Mane is a man in form for the Reds with three goals in Liverpool's opening two league games, while summer signing Alisson has kept two successive clean sheets.

Liverpool can not afford a slip-up at Anfield Road against a visiting Brighton team that are off to a great start.

Brighton should have salvaged a point in the dying minutes when Pascal Gross found himself unmarked in the area but his header was straight at Alisson and the Brazilian pushed it away to safety.


"We conceded a very poor goal and you have to make sure you stick in the game", he said.

Mohamed Salah scored Liverpool's only goal of the night as Chris Hughton's side only attacked the Liverpool goal with 20 minutes to spare. That's quite cool and gives us a few more opportunities.

"If we're being honest we probably weren't at our best but these are the games that are so important to win, because when you're not at your best and it's not quite going according to plan then it's important to go in front and obviously that's what Mo did for us", the Scotland global said. "I like him a lot and he will be in our squad".

"At 1-0 down at half-time most people expected Liverpool to push on but we got stronger as the game went on".

Like Anfield hero Steven Gerrard, who was with the Merseysiders until turning 35, Milner has adapted his game in recent years to provide more of a defensive option, with the former winger even offering solid cover at full back when required. "These things happen. You have to learn from it and get stronger in the game and that we did".
