Alisson 'looks like' missing piece for Liverpool - Klopp

Fabinho was an unused substitute in Liverpool's 4-0 home win over West Ham United in their league opener, before the 24-year-old was left out of the squad for the 2-0 win at Crystal Palace and Saturday's 1-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion.

"We've had two very hard games and we've come out with a lot of credit".

It was hardly vintage Liverpool, with Brighton fresh from their victory over Manchester United last week, well-organised at the back and frequently frustrating Jurgen Klopp's front three. If we get that level of performance throughout the season, then we'll be fine. "One-nil is not a result we've had very often since I was in but I am very happy because it was the best we could get today". It led to Salah's 23rd-minute strike and Hughton was disappointed with the manner in which they conceded the goal.

Brighton kept a disciplined formation, frustrating Liverpool but creating little until a Pascal Gross header in the 88th minute forced a good save out of Liverpool keeper Alisson Becker.

Though Liverpool can blow teams away that attack them, the Seagulls showed late in the game that they can be vulnerable when put under pressure. Well, according to the Mirror, the Reds are now trialling a "specialist throw-ins coach" - no, seriously - to add even more goals to their game.

"First half was a good mindset, really patient in the right moment, and we scored the goal and could've score more and I don't think they had a chance in the first half".

"At 1-0 down, you expect Liverpool to push on, especially going into their favourite end of the ground, but we got stronger as the game went on and played a system that helped us".

So he makes sure that we are staying with both feet on the ground, work hard and tries to make us realise that we have to do a lot to play a good game.
