Steven Alzate’s scrambled finish in the 56th minute after Dan Burn headed Solly March’s cross across the goal gave Graham Potter’s side their third win in a row in the Premier League. It was their first league win at Anfield since 1982.
Liverpool did not pepper the Brighton goal and their best chance fell to Mohamed Salah who fired over.
Caoimhin Kelleher, who was in for the injured Alisson, made some smart saves to deny Pascal Gross and Leonardo Trossard adding to Brighton’s lead.
Liverpool had just one shot on target and have not won at home since 16th December and have failed to score in three consecutive games at Anfield for the first time since October 1984.
After 68 home games without defeat, they have now lost their last two.
Brighton are now unbeaten in four league games having kept clean sheets in all four games.
The Seagulls 10 points clear of the Premier League relegation zone with 24 points from 22 games.
