Liverpool's Alisson Sent Off For Handling Outside The Box Against Brighton

The Reds were reduced to 10 men on 76 minutes when Alisson Becker was shown a straight red for handling outside of the box with the score at 2-0.

But the mood changed with 15 minutes remaining when Alisson was dismissed for a handball outside of the box, and from the resulting free-kick, Lewis Dunk halved the deficit, bizarrely catching sub Adrian out as he was organising his wall (79).

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has lauded his side for being willing to put in the hard yards to grind out a 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, while playing down the Reds' commanding lead at the top of the Premier League table.

But the 10 men held out for another vital three points to edge closer to a first league title in 30 years.

All that could be said for sure after Brighton were beaten at a surprisingly fraught Anfield is that this was the day the reigning Premier League champions disappeared from Jürgen Klopp's rear-view mirror. "We had unbelievable chances".

However, a red card for goalkeeper Alisson - who will miss the clash with Everton - and a goal from Lewis Dunk set up a tense finale.

"We carried on fighting and Adrian helped us with two really good saves and crosses he caught, but with his cold feet he couldn't kick the ball as far as he wanted".

"The boys threw everything on the pitch".

"In a lot of moments [it went well], always knowing about the very specific quality of Brighton; they don't care too much about the opponent they play".

The Merseyside outfit came within a whisker of winning the Premier League title last season but they ended up a single point behind Manchester City in the top-flight table. Pep Guardiola's side lost 2-1 in January, which sparked a 14-match winning run that took City to the title - a point ahead of Liverpool.

But Newcastle responded quickly on both occasions as Jetro Willems cancelled out Sterling's strike before Jonjo Shelvey swept home a well-worked free-kick two minutes from time.

"We do the same work we have done over the last few seasons. We tried to score more goals but it did not happen", said Guardiola, whose side failed to capitalise on almost 80 percent of possession.

If third-placed Leicester, which was tied on points with Man City, fails to beat Everton on Sunday, Liverpool will own a double-figure lead after just 14 of the 38 rounds.

However, the Toffees may take note of West Ham's decision to give Manuel Pellegrini an extra week to turn around his side's fortunes.

The Hammers travelled to Stamford Bridge on an eight-game winless run, but were the ideal blend of disciplined in defence and risky on the counter-attack to hold Chelsea scoreless in the Premier League for the first time since the opening weekend of the season.
