Having lost out to Liverpool at the weekend in a 1-0 defeat, Brighton and Hove Albion’s Leon Balogun took to social media following the match to speak about the mixed feelings he had on the result.

Heading to Anfield for the game on Saturday, Mohamed Salah’s first-half goal settled the tie and clearly the hosts dominated the match in terms of possession, but manager Chris Hughton’s game plan was sensible and it was about frustrating them and for large parts of the match we did just that and had we come out with a point we’d have won praise for an organised and disciplined showing.

Following Balogun’s tweet.

In some ways that largely happened as there were a few Liverpool fans who took the time to praise Brighton for almost doing just that and the majority of fans were happy to echo Hughton’s post-game words where he explained he knew it was an opportunity, but we fell just minorly short.

That’s only a small selection of the comments in his and Brighton’s favour, if we continue to perform like that though games will go in our favour when we’re not facing the top of the table sides and we’ll continue to nick the odd match in the process ala Manchester United when things in front of the net click better.
