Champions Liverpool continued their relentless form with a gritty 3-1 win over Brighton away at the AMEX Stadium.

This was their 30th league win of the season and it came in their 34th game, making them the fastest team in the history of top-flight football to reach that tally of victories.

A Mohamed Salah brace and a superb goal from captain Jordan Henderson sealed the win for the away side, while Leandro Trossard pulled one back at one stage for the Seagulls.

Liverpool were two up inside eight minutes, with both goals thanks to some superb pressing. Firstly, Naby Keita forced a mistake out of Davy Propper before sliding the ball across for Salah to score.

Moments later, Keita initiated another press and the loose ball fell for Salah, whose miscontrol allowed Henderson to hit it first time into the corner.

Just before half-time, a fine cross from Tariq Lamptey was volleyed home by Trossard to give Brighton a route back into the game.

That route back was forced closed away 15 minutes from time when Salah cleverly diverted an Andy Robertson corner inside the near post.

It was a game where both teams had ample chances, but Liverpool were more clinical than Brighton.
