Full time! The referee brings an end to the match which sees Liverpool scrape their way to all three points after that late Allison red card! Final score at Anfield: Liverpool 2-1 Brighton!
Brighton are controlling the game outside the Liverpool area as they wait for an opening...
There will be a minimum of 4 minutes added time!
It's close again! Gross hits a header straight at Adrian, but the Liverpool goalkeeper fumbles! Alzate comes sprinting in, but Adrian gathers it at the second attempt! Such drama in these late stages.
Adrian saves! Mooy is in space a few yards outside the box, but his powerful effort towards the far corner is a good height for Adrian who beats it away to safety!
Brighton on the attack as Burn and Mooy play a one-two on the corner of the box, but Burn should do better with his effort which is sliced into the crowd behind the goal.
Brighton have all the possession now as we head into the final 10- minutes. The Anfield crowd have reacted strongly by getting behind their side with a lot of noise!
GOAL! Dunk pulls one back from the free-kick! It's an unbelievable moment as Dunk takes the free-kick before Adrian is even ready for it, and the ball is essentially passed into the bottom left corner with Adrian scrambling!
RED CARD! Allison is sent off! A long ball is pumped upfield for Trossard who gets in-behind the Liverpool defence. Alisson rushes out, Trossard looks to dink it over him, but Alisson saves with his hand outside the box! Clear red!
Another sub for Liverpool. Origi comes on replacing Roberto Firmino.
Sub for Liverpool: Salah is replaced by Lallana.
Double sub for Brighton as Alzate and Trossard replace Montoya and Bissouma.
Trent plays a corner in which is cleared before Chamberlain nearly finds Van Dijk at the far post!
Chamberlain drives past his marker and crosses for Trent whose effort in space is blocked brilliantly by Dunk!
Close for Liverpool! Robertson does well on the left, squares for Salah, he misses it, but it falls to the Chamberlain back post. He takes two touches before his left-footed effort is blocked brilliantly by Dunk!
Good save! Montoya plays it to Connolly with his back to goal. He controls it well, turns and shoots, but Alisson is equal to it down to his right!
Things aren't really happening for Salah today. Mane squares it to the Egyptian with pace, a little off the ground, but Salah's attempted volley hits his shin and goes out for a throw-in!
Mane clutters into Propper with the ball having gone down the field, but it looked accidental. Propper is down hurt and he'll need some attention.
So close! Brighton with another corner on the left side which Gross delivers in, and Dunk rises up above Lovren and glances it just wide of the far post! Alisson was rooted to the ground and Brighton are still not out of it!
Salah on the attack from Alexander-Arnold's good ball, but Dunk gets a crucial foot on it as Ryan collects. Big chance as Salah could've scored there.
Liverpool on the attack as Chamberlain plays the ball a yard ahead of Alexander-Arnold and it's out of play for a goal kick. Liverpool are not quite at it today, but they can afford to make these mistake up front at this point of the match.
Half time! The referee brings an end to the half, with the score at Anfield: Liverpool 2-0 Brighton! We'll be back in 15 minutes for the second half, so stay tuned!
Great play by Liverpool! Mane drives down the left-with excellent strength. It's played to Firmino and then Salah who lays it off for the Chamberlain, but his left-footed shot in the area is parried away by Ryan!
Brighton are getting back into this! Bissouma squares the ball for Propper who hits a deflected effort wide off Wijnaldum! Mooy's corner then curls out of play and Liverpool win a goal-kick.
Dunk misses in front of goal! Burn whips a good cross into the area with Dunk completely unmarked, but he mishits the one-touch effort which goes wide of the post! Huge chance there and Dunk has to do better.
Propper shoots! He picks up the ball in the centre of the field after a good one-two, before shooting towards the far corner which Alisson parries out for a corner! It's swung into the area but comes to nothing.
Webster picks up the ball about 35-yards out from goal. He doesn't get closed down so opts to shoot for goal, but the technique looks off as the ball curves away from the target and out for a goal-kick to Liverpool.
Brighton play their way into trouble again in their own area. Webster is careless as he gives the ball away to Mane in the box. Mane gets to the byline but he can't stretch enough to get a cross into the danger zone.
GOAL! Alexander-Arnold's corner from the left finds the head of Van Dijk as he rises high above Dunk at the near post. He makes good connection and it flies past Ryan at the near post! Liverpool 2-0 Brighton!
It's close again! Dunk makes a poor clearance from Firmino's shot which falls to Mane eight yards! He fires towards the near post but Ryan is there again to make the save! Terrific display from the Brighton keeper early on.
Firmino comes close to makes it two! He's at a tight angle on the right side of the box from Robertson's ball, but Ryan gets behind it well!
GOAL! VAN DIJK! Liverpool win a free-kick on the right in a good crossing position around 45 yards out. Alexander-Arnold delivers a great ball in which Van Dijk meets and sends a looping header over Ryan into the far corner!
Great save from Ryan! Robertson plays Mane down the left and he drives into the area and squares for Firmino. The Brazilian fires toward the bottom left corner after a good set-up touch but Ryan saves with a strong right hand!
Salah plays a great one-two with Firmino on the right side of the box. Salah gets to the byline but his first touch is too heavy and he plays his cross into the side-netting. Brighton were fortunate there as Dan Burn was stretched too far out wide left.
Mane does well to break from the back and win a foul off Montoya. He displayed great speed and strength, and Montoya is lucky not to be booked for that one.
Good counter-attack from Brighton as Propper feeds Gross, but his cross for Connolly is blocked well by Van Dijk. The corner is taken short and Mooy whips a fierce ball in which Lovren defends well in his six-yard box.
Mane shoots! Burn gives the ball away poorly in the Brighton half. Firmino picks it up and drives towards goal as Mane takes over and fires at goal, but Webster blocks!
Liverpool instantly on the attack! Chamberlain gets a cross into the area from the right side but Dunk stretches to head clear as Firmino was lurking!
