Liverpool beat Brighton 2-1 at Anfield despite goalkeeper Becker Alisson was sent off for a blatant handball outside the penlaty box area of the Reds.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were coasting to victory after two Virgil van Dijk headers from Trent Alexander-Arnold assists in the space of six first-half minutes.

But Alisson’s red card – for clearly handling outside his penalty area with Brighton substitute Leandro Trossard bearing down on goal – gifted the visitors a lifeline.

Substitute keeper Adrian’s first touch was to gather the ball out of his own net after Lewis Dunk’s cute free-kick left the keeper – who was still organising his wall – stranded, before Liverpool’s stopper saved late on from Aaron Mooy.
