Liverpool won the away match against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday in the Premier League with a goal from Mohamed Salah. Earlier in the afternoon, Arsenal went down with 1-0 at West Ham United.

Salah shot into the match between Brighton and Liverpool flawlessly five minutes after the break. The ball went on the spot after a foul by Pascal Gross on the Egyptian.

Georginio Wijnaldum got a big chance at the 0-2 in the final phase, but the Dutch National Team worked the ball just wide. Wijnaldum, like Virgil van Dijk, played the entire match at Liverpool. At Brighton, Jürgen Locadia and Davy Pröpper both completed ninety minutes.

With the victory, league-leader Liverpool now has seven points ahead of number two Manchester City, who was 2-1 too strong for the 'Reds' over a week ago. City still plays at home against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.

Rice gives West Ham victory over Arsenal

Declan Rice made the only goal in the game between West Ham-Arsenal shortly after the break. The nineteen-year-old midfielder shot the ball nicely in the upper right corner.

Arsenal then went on the hunt for the equalizer and was close to goal attempts by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alex Iwobi. Aubameyang found the net for the 'Gunners' in the final phase, but that hit was rejected due to offside.

Because of the defeat Arsenal remains fifth. The Londoners are three points behind number four Chelsea, who later plays on Stamford Bridge against Newcastle United on Saturday.

Arsenal can lose fifth place Sunday to Manchester United. The team of interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must win a visit to Tottenham Hotspur.
