What an absolute rollercoaster the start of this game is turning out to be as Liverpool are defensively weak again this week due to injuries. Neco Williams put in a rash challenge that was always going to be a penalty and there’s no debating otherwise. Aaron Connoly made a break in the box and covered the ball when Neco stuck his leg into the back of Connoly and conceded the penalty.
Neco is then incredibly lucky as Neal Maupay steps up to the spot, sends Alisson the wrong way and tried to place it into the bottom right corner. He tries to place it too well is the problem as he places it wide of the right hand post and out for a goal kick. Brighton’s possibly amazing start to the game has come to a complete halt now.
