Kaoru Mitoma scored an incredible last-minute goal to win it for Brighton and send Liverpool crashing out of the cup.
Things have gone from bad to worse for Liverpool as they look more and more likely to finish the season without any silverware after being booted out of the cup by Brighton.
The Seagulls have been insatiable this season, they currently sit sixth in the Premier League table, three places ahead of Liverpool and for a good reason. Under Robert De Zerbi the team has gone up a level and their talent recruitment team is really pulling its weight.
One of their standout players this season is Mitoma, who the club recruited for just £3 million in the summer. The Japanese international is easily worth close to £80 million in today’s market and justified that price tag with a beautiful finish after some quick footwork.
WHAT. A. GOAL. 🪄

This was essentially the last kick of the game and what a fine finish it was.
Brighton has been a bogey team for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, they also beat Liverpool 3-0 in the Premier League.
