Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah during the Premier League match between Brighton & Hove Albion and Liverpool FC at the American Express Community Stadium on October 8, 2023.

Liverpool drew 2-2 with Brighton after two goals from Mohamed Salah.
The Reds had to come from behind in the first half when a mix-up between Virgil van Dijk, Alexis Mac Allister and Alisson allowed Simon Adingra to score.

Lewis Dunk equalized late in the second half after Ryan Gravenberch had earlier hit the bar, before Joao Pedro missed a great chance to score the winner.
Here are Ian Doyle’s LFC player ratings:

Alisson Becker 7

Poor positioning allowed Adingra to open with comical ease, but a great save to deny the same player in the second half. Trent Alexander-Arnold 7

Came on top in his battle with Mitoma and started to dictate things with his passing in the second half when he dropped into midfield. Submitted.
Joel Matip 6

A couple of good defensive blocks early on and tried to get Liverpool to attack deep. Firm and low.
Virgil van Dijk 6

Partly responsible for the first goal with a lazy pass and didn’t look too happy before the break, although improved afterwards. Andy Robertson 6

Restricted by a few raids occupied by Adingra on Brighton’s right. Started to find space in the second half but was pushed back in the final quarter.
Alexis McAllister 5

Just doesn’t seem comfortable in the 6 role and too relaxed giving the ball away in Brighton’s opener. However, they managed to start a draw and a better second half.
Harvey Elliott 5

Tried hard but didn’t use the ball very well in the few chances he had until he came alive before the break. Submitted.
Dominik Szoboszlai 6

He was switched to the left side of the midfield trio and so he barely saw the ball until the equalizer and then the win. More lively when switching right after the break. Reserved.
Mohamed Salah 7

Peripheral too often and too many difficult passes but then equalized with aplomb and then emphatically slotted a penalty. The second half fits and starts anyway.

Darwin Nunez 6

Barely involved before his pass set up Salah’s equaliser. Not exactly an attacking threat but putting in a big shift to put pressure on the back of Brighton.
Luis Diaz 6

He enjoyed a battle with Veltman and one Liverpool player in the opening quarter to show real intent. Faded a bit as the game progressed and the opening was missed

He missed when he hit the bar from distance, but brought real energy to Liverpool’s midfield. Ibrahima Konate (for Matip 73) 5

Added physicality to the winger’s effort, but a soft foul gave Brighton a chance to equalise.
Joe Gomez (80 for Alexander-Arnold)
