(CTN News) – A thrilling 3-3 draw between Liverpool vs. Brighton & Hove Albion marked Roberto De Zerbi’s debut as Brighton & Hove Albion coach. Leandro Trossard gave the Italian a two-goal lead early in the first half to give him a dream start as Seagulls manager.
However, goals in either half from Roberto Firmino — one requiring a VAR check to overturn an offside call — dragged the Reds back level.
And they appeared set for a much-needed win after forcing Adam Webster to put through his own net from a corner to complete the comeback.
However, Trossard smashed in another fine finish six minutes from time at the Kop end to earn a deserved draw for the visitors.
