Brighton defender Balogun: We could've taken Liverpool point

Brighton defender Leon Balogun admitted frustration after defeat at Liverpool.

The Nigerian made his first Premier League start in the game with Jurgen Klopp's men, and insisted that the side could be proud of their efforts despite the frustrating nature of the result.

He said, “I would compare today's game to playing against the likes of Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund in Germany.

“It's a very fast game with quick attack with lots of quality – it was tough today but that's why the disappointment is quite big because we feel like we were very close to getting something.

“We had chances late on to get a point and we feel like we could have done today."
