Liverpool 2-1 Brighton & Hove Albion
(van Dijk 18’ 24’ – Dunk 79’)
Alex showed his reliability once again for his club, having featured for Liverpool for the seventh game in a row, starting in the 2-1 home victory over Brighton.
The 26-year-old was at the heart of everything positive for the home side bringing the Reds a new dimension from midfield, replacing the injured Fabinho.
Whilst it was Virgil van Dijk’s brace and a late fightback from Brighton that grabbed the headlines, Alex was unlucky to have a shot saved just before the break from Brighton goalkeeper Matt Ryan, who was busy all game.
With the build-up of fixtures coming in through this part of the season, Alex’s energy and talent will be crucial for Liverpool for the upcoming encounters.
What Does This Mean?
After fellow top four sides Liverpool and Chelsea dropped points earlier today, Liverpool have a huge 11-point gap as Premier League leaders – with third-place Leicester City having a game in hand.
The Merseyside derby is next on the agenda for Alex as Liverpool host their bitter rivals Everton on Wednesday night.
