The start was good. In the 30th minute of the first half, Harvey Elliott, who received a through pass from Mohamed Salah, shook the net with a sharp finish at the door. However, he conceded the equalizer too early after that. In the 39th minute of the first half, Tariq Lampty’s mid-range shot was deflected by Lewis Dunk’s foot and sucked into the goal.
In the second half, he even gave up a theatrical goal and fell to his knees. In the 2nd minute of extra time in the second half, after a free kick, Pervis Estupinyan sent the ball high towards the goal. Mitoma succeeded in scoring with a concise shot after sensuous trapping.
The match ended with Brighton’s thrilling come-from-behind victory.
After the game, coach Klopp said, “It was okay because Andy Robertson, who was on the left side, helped. But Alexander Arnold, who was on the right side, was not supported.”
Liverpool’s Arnold, who played right-back that day, had trouble with Mitoma and was substituted out in the 14th minute of the second half.
‘Theatrical goal hero’ Mitoma has been performing tremendously for Brighton this season. He has so far produced 6 goals and 2 assists in 14 English Premier League (EPL) matches, 4 goals and 1 assist, FA Cup 1 goal and 1 assist, and 1 goal in the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup).
