Brighton boss Hughton can't fault players in Liverpool defeat

Brighton boss Chris Hughton couldn't fault his players in defeat at Liverpool.

The Seagulls lost 1-0 through a Mohamed Salah strike.

Hughton said, “Over the 90 minutes, you know you've got to have a defence who throw their bodies in front of the ball, and a goalkeeper who's going to make a few good saves for you.

“But I thought we had chances of our own. They made changes towards the end of the game to get that extra goal - but we finished really strong and we won't have many opportunities like that.

“At 1-0 down, you expect Liverpool to push on, especially going into their favourite end of the ground, but we got stronger as the game went on and played a system that helped us.

“We were good on the ball and had some really good moments. If we were a little more clinical with our chances, then we would have taken something from the game."
