At Brighton there was a lot to do this week around Leandro Trossard, who was excluded from the selection for the match against Liverpool by coach Roberto De Zerbi. Without the Red Devil, however, it also went for the Premier League revelation of this season. Brighton made it 3-0 after a strong second half and so over Liverpool in the score.
Leandro Trossard had scored a hat-trick in the first leg at Anfield a few months ago. Brighton then pulled out a 3-3 draw and wanted to do better at home. Brighton played strongly, but failed to score in the first 45 minutes. Something that worked out early in the second half.
After Joel Matip handed in the ball, the home team saw his chance. In the end, the leather ended up with Solly March, who was able to push the 1-0 against the nets from close range. A few minutes later it was March again, this time from just outside the box: 2-0.
In the closing stages, March put the icing on the cake by offering the 3-0 to Danny Welbeck, who scored his first Premier League goal of the season. Soon after, Welbeck made it 4-0 immediately afterwards, but goalkeeper Alisson was in the way.
Brighton jumps to seventh place over Liverpool and now has 30 points, two more than The Reds. (Read more below the photo)
Leicester-Belgians lose fourth time in a row
At the same time, Leicester City took on PhD student Nottingham Forest. Not an unimportant encounter, because both clubs were equal in advance and camped not far above the relegation line. In the end it was Nottingham who did an excellent job, winning 2-0 after two goals from 21-year-old Brennan Johnson. For Leicester City it is already the fourth league defeat in a row.
At Leicester City, Red Devils Timothy Castagne, Wout Faes and Youri Tielemans played the entire match, while Dennis Praet came on in the 68th minute. At Forest, Orel Mangala played 70 minutes.
In the standings, Nottingham Forest only ends up in thirteenth place with 20 points. Leicester City share fourteenth place with Leeds United and Wolves, but are only two points clear of the three clubs in the relegation places.
