Pascal Gross’ penalty deep into stoppage time gives Brighton a vital point against Liverpool in an intriguing clash at the Amex Stadium. 

It was deep into added time at the end of the game when Pascal Gross slammed his penalty down the middle past the dive of Alisson and into the back of the Liverpool net for Brighton’s equaliser.

At the touch-line, Jurgen Klopp began clapping at the fourth official sarcastically. His side had dropped points again, days after from a miserable loss to Atalanta in the Champions League.

The match saw several key moments with Neal Maupay having his penalty effort in first-half denied minutes before Mohammed Salah was denied a goal after VAR review.

Diogo Jota continued his impressive form with the Reds when he opened the scoring in the second-half before Sadio Mane has an effort ruled out for offside.

A review by VAR deep into the match adjudged that Andy  Robertson had brought down former Arsenal man Danny Welbeck and gave the hosts a chance to grab a point from the penalty spot.

The result leaves the reigning Champions top of the table with 21 points while Brighton are in 16th.
