With Brighton and Hove Albion suffering a narrow defeat from last weekend’s trip to Anfield to face Liverpool, plenty of fans remain optimistic about not only our chances for avoiding relegation again in the season of 2018/19 but actually pushing further up the Premier League table by next May.
With significant strengthening in the last transfer window and some good quality coming through the Amex doors – even if we’re waiting for them all the settle properly still – expectations at the club have risen but not too unreasonable levels.
I think that’s epitomised by the reactions to the Liverpool game because apart from one slip-up we almost carried the game plan out perfectly and undoubtedly Liverpool were frustrated and it’ll be a case of relief more than anything else for them when they look back at the match.
Fair play Brighton, best I’ve seen a team come to anfield and play in quite a while, best of luck for the rest of the season????

I don't know about klopp but as a liverpool fan I was definitely relived at the final whistle. Hughton got his tactics spot on

And yet Bissouma still looked good going forward, shame about the goal though.

Not a bad effort today. The next to matches need to be wins! Weaker competition coming to Amex. They need to pick up 6 points for sure!

Good to see Liverpool fans pop up on the social media game threads as that speaks volumes for our own performance on the day really.
