Liverpool bounced back from defeat to Manchester City as Mohamed Salah sunk Brighton to open up a seven-point lead at the top.

The Egyptian won and converted a decisive 50th-minute penalty as Liverpool returned to winning ways with a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Brighton and Hove Albion.

Meanwhile, title rivals Manchester City shortened the gap at the summit to four points when they beat the Reds’ 2-1 last week and a much-changed XI were then knocked out of the FA Cup by Wolves.

But Jurgen Klopp’s men restored a seven-point advantage thanks to the excellent Salah, having bided their time in the face of an often-impeccable defensive display from Brighton.

City host Wolves on Monday, by which time Tottenham will look forward to conquering Manchester United and close to within six of Liverpool.

Fabinho was deployed as an emergency centre-back for the visitors and his raking pass allowed Andrew Robertson to deliver a teasing cross from the left, with Roberto Firmino unable to slide home.

Liverpool had a great room for attacking players to operate, between a compact Brighton defence and midfield was sparing.

But Sadio Mane engineered some great play in the 27th minute, for Trent Alexander-Arnold to whip into the box and Xherdan Shaqiri’s header just glanced wide at the post.

Jordan Henderson found space for Liverpool’s next headed attempt as Lewis Dunk made the block.

Mo Salah escaped the shackles to force a save from David Button early in the second half and a jinking dribble from the Egypt star moments later drew a clumsy foul from Pascal Gross.

The Brighton goalkeeper, Button guessed right but was beaten past for shot power.

Fabinho’s first significant piece of defensive work came before the hour when he blocked from Gross, while Alisson took no chances in pushing Jurgen Locadia’s speculative attempt around the post.

Georginio Wijnaldum lashed just wide 10 minutes from time and Salah uncharacteristically missed from close range when set up by substitute James Milner, but his earlier intervention proved to be enough.
