Liverpool go top after compelling Brighton win Football

Jurgen Klopp registered his 300th win in charge of Liverpool with an enthralling 2-1 victory over Roberto de Zerbi's Brighton to send them top of the Premier League.

Ahead of Manchester City's meeting with Arsenal, which ended in a goalless draw, the Reds had the chance to succeed both fellow title challengers at the summit, but did not enjoy the start they envisaged after falling behind within 87 first-half seconds at Anfield.
