VIDEO: Liverpool 4 – 0 Brighton & Hove Albion [Premier League] Highlights 2017/18
Mohamed Salah created Premier League history as Liverpool wrapped up a top-four finish with a comfortable 4-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday.
Salah fired the hosts in front during the first half at Anfield, the forward swivelling inside the penalty area to score his 32nd league goal and, in the process, set a new competition record for a 38-game season.
Dejan Lovren headed in Liverpool’s second before the break, the defender converting Andrew Robertson’s left-wing cross.
Salah then showed his creative side by setting up Dominic Solanke’s first goal for the club, and Robertson netted a fourth in the 85th minute to help Jurgen Klopp’s side finish their domestic duties in style.
The result saw travel-sick Brighton end an otherwise successful first Premier League campaign without an away league win in 2018, as Chris Hughton’s team wilted in the Merseyside sunshine.
Liverpool still have unfinished business in Europe this season, of course, and Klopp made sure Salah – as well as Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, the other members of the now-famous front three – were unscathed before the final against Real Madrid on May 26, withdrawing them all in the closing stages of what was a routine victory.
