Liverpool set unwanted records with shock defeat

Liverpool set multiple unwanted records as Brighton secure shock win at Anfield

The Reds were condemned to back to back defeats at Anfield on Wednesday.

Premier League trophy holders Liverpool were dealt yet another blow in their title defense following Wednesday night's defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion. The Seagulls entered Anfield and condemned the Reds to their second consecutive defeat, running away with the maximum three points thanks to Steven Alzate's stunner.

Liverpool entered the mid-week's encounter hoping to make amends for the defeat they suffered against Burnley despite picking up successive away wins over West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur. A 1-0 loss to the Clarets ended their remarkable 68-game unbeaten run Anfield and placed them four points behind current leaders Manchester City who have since extended the lead to seven with a game in hand.

Upon returning to the sacred arena on Wednesday, Jurgen Klopp fielded a 'weak' starting line up with Sadio Mane and Alisson Becker missing out with an injury and illness respectively. The German manager's selection, however, failed to yield the desired result with a robust Brighton set-up keeping them at bay for the most part of the first 45 minutes. Less than 10 minutes after returning from the half-time break, the host found themselves at the wrong end of the scoreboard with Alzate tapping home Dan Burn's headed pass in the penalty area for his first-ever Premier League goal.

Liverpool failed to find their way back as Brighton sealed a memorable win to go 10 points clear of the relegation zone. It was the first time the Seagulls had beaten Liverpool in the Premier League as their last ever win over the Reds came in 1982. For the Merseysiders the result saw them pick up back to back losses in the Premier League at Anfield for the first time since 2012.

Klopp's men have also failed to find the back of the net in three consecutive home league games for the first time since October 1984.
