Brighton 0-1 Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool have lost their last two outings at Manchester City and Wolves

Liverpool have been awarded four penalties in their last four league matches, with three coming for fouls on Salah.

"We played a lot of times against a 4-5-1, it's really hard".

Andy Robertson believes opponents are clutching at straws attempting to brand Mohamed Salah as a diver.

"I'm not sure if the Brighton players did say it was a dive or not and I'll need to see it back but I was at the edge of the box and for me it was a stone-waller".

Liverpool went seven points clear at the top of the Premier League and bounced back from two successive defeats in all competitions after a Mohamed Salah penalty gave them a 1-0 win at Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

"If people are starting to say Mo has gone down easily it's not fair because the one against Arsenal, especially, he got clipped three times on his way down and they still appealed it so it's a bit of desperation".

The young winger earned and scored a penalty kick in Liverpool's first win this year after the team struggled in their first two games against Manchester City in the league and Wolves in the FA Cup.

"I'm completely happy even with the way we did it because I saw pretty early in the game that it was a harsh one, really tough that we would come through".

"It wouldn't be obvious but it would be something about us a lot of the time - what we were good at, why we're here".

"And then on Saturday we did the exact same". Whoever wins the league will look back on some games and go "do you know what, we probably weren't at our best there, and that was probably one that helped us turn one point into three or zero into one".

He said: "I think it was the most mature performance we have made so far".
