Well this is nice!
After a testy stretch that made some of us— okay, me— more than a little nervous, Liverpool appeared to finally put the game out of reach.
Having won a free kick outside the box, Philippe Coutinho stepped up to take it. Excepting one of his beautiful trademark curlers, Brighton’s wall hopped up to try and block the shot. Anticipating this, Coutinho went for the daisy cutter, hitting his shot low enough the slide under the feet of the Brighton players. The keeper didn’t expect Coutinho to do that, and was caught flat-footed as the ball rolled into his net.
That’s 4-1 to the Reds and they’ve probably got this put away.
