| Liverpool 4-0 Brighton: Mohamed Salah sets Premier League record as Liverpool secure fourth
| 3mbet Liverpool secured fourth place in the Premier League with a thrilling 4-0 victory over Brighton at Anfield on the final day of the season. Mohamed Salah's 32nd goal of the season - a record in a 38-game Premier League season - got the dominant Reds going on 26 minutes before Dejan Lovren doubled their lead five minutes before half-time.
Brighton offered little by way of a response and Dominic Solanke's stunning first goal for Liverpool and a maiden strike from Andy Robertson added further gloss to the impressive performance. The victory, coupled with Chelsea's defeat at Newcastle, means Liverpool will be playing in Europe's premier competition next season, regardless of the outcome of their Champions League final date with Real Madrid on May 26.
In a straight shootout with Chelsea for the final Champions League qualification spot, Liverpool entered their final league game of the season simply needing to avoid defeat to finish in the top four, but a tense and frustrating first half unfolded. After Solanke failed to punish Shane Duffy after he under hit a back pass, Liverpool were denied two penalties as the Brighton centre-back's handball and challenge on Salah in the area went unpunished by referee Kevin Friend. 3mbet
Sadio Mane failed to convert Liverpool's first clear opening on 19 minutes before Virgil van Dijk glanced a header wide shortly after. But 26 minutes of frustration finally came to an end when Solanke poked the ball through to Salah and he fired his record-breaking goal beyond Mat Ryan. After Roberto Firmino fired over, Salah should have had a second on the half hour but Ryan thwarted him after Mane's selfless square pass and Duffy blocked his follow-up off the line. 3mbet
