Liverpool Prepare for Kiev with Comfortable Win

Player of the season Mo Salah set a new record in a convincing win for Liverpool on a sunny afternoon at Anfield by scoring 32 goals in a 38 game season; the most in Premier League history.

Liverpool controlled the game from the first whistle to the last and with a scoreline which could have been humiliating for the visiting Brighton if they had taken there chances. Salah scored the first of four, the reds with a tidy finish into the bottom corner from inside the area with Dejan Lovren doubling their lead with a thumping header five minutes from the break.

Liverpool showed no signs of slowing down after the break with Dominic Solanke scoring his first goal of the season with a strike that came off the underside of the crossbar. One of the most underrated players in my eyes Andrew Robertson added the fourth in the final 10 minutes.

This performance shows positive signs for the Champions League final that takes place on May 26 against current holders Real Madrid. However Liverpool are unlikely to get as many chances as they got against Brighton so they are going to need to be more clinical because Sadio Mane in particular had a couple chances to put the game to bed in the first half but was quite wasteful. With one of the most feared attacking trios that world football contains they are definitely in with a chance of winning their sixth European cup.

This defeat concludes a successful first season back in the Premier League for Brighton with finishing 15th and seven points clear off the drop zone, Chris Hughton has done a fantastic job with the Seagulls and will hope to solidify their status as a Premier League Club in the coming seasons.

Following the full time whistle the players were on the pitch doing their lap of honour in a atmosphere full of optimism and celebration ahead of the upcoming final with Mo Salah being presented with the Golden Boot and the clubs player of the year trophy.
