Humble Brighton snatches a draw from Liverpool in a deadly time
Modest Brighton missed an early penalty kick and scored another in the lost time to snatch a valuable point from champions Liverpool (1-1) and prevent him from moving away temporarily at the top of the Premier League on Saturday at the opening of the tenth stage.
After Frenchman Neil Mobay missed a penalty kick after a third of an hour from the start for the sixteenth in the standings, and Portuguese Diogo Jota scored the first goal for the red team (60), Brighton got a second kick translated by German killer Pascal Gross (90 + 3).
It is true that Liverpool is temporarily alone at the top with 21 points, but Tottenham (20) will be able to snatch it from him if it wins Sunday against its host and neighbor Chelsea, who has 18 points and is also competing for the lead.
The match came at a difficult time for Liverpool, who were deficient in numbers, after they fell at home in "Anfield" in front of Italy's Atalanta (0 -2) in the European Champions League, to postpone their qualification to the final price.
German coach Jürgen Klopp raised the voice against noon matches, especially for the teams competing in Europe in the middle of the week, as he considered before the Atlanta meeting that the Premier League teams may not soon be able to secure 11 ready-made players, unless structural changes are made to protect the comfort of clubs exhausted by the crowded match calendar. .
The European champion in 2019 missed many of his players, most notably the Dutch defender Virgil van Dyck and Joe Gomez, who were absent at the end of the season, in addition to Jordan Henderson, Spaniard Thiago Alcantara, Guinean Naby Keita and Netflix Alexander Arnold.
