Comments:

League position: 1st Liverpool were now unbeaten in their last 31 games in the Premier League to equal their club record run without defeat in the top division (also in League Division One from May 1987 to March 1988). The Reds had now won their last 14 home games in the Premier League. Their only longer such run in the top division was 21 consecutive wins at Anfield in League Division One from January 1972 to December 1972. Alisson Becker became the first goalkeeper to be sent off in a game in the Premier League for a handball offence since 11 February 2015 when Adrián (his replacement in this game) was dismissed when playing for West Ham United against Southampton. After 14 games, this was the seventh game that the Reds had won so far in this Premier League season by a 2-1 margin. They had now conceded one goal in 12 of their 14 games so far in this Premier League season and kept a clean sheet in the other two.

Comments:

League position: 15th Brighton and Hove Albion were now without a win in their last six away games in the Premier League and lost each of the last four. The Seagulls had now failed to win any of their 16 away games in the Premier League at the big six opposition. Albion had now taken 15 points from their 14 games so far in this Premier League season; three fewer than at the same stage of the previous season.
