Roberto Firmino scored twice as Liverpool moved up to fourth place in the Premier League table thanks to a 5-1 victory over Brighton at the Amex Stadium this afternoon.

The Reds opened the scoring midway through the first half as Emre Can rose high to power home a header from 6 yards following a Philippe Coutinho corner in the 30th minute.

Jurgen Klopp’s side doubled their advantage within a minute of the restart as Liverpool broke at pace through Mohamed Salah who fed Coutinho and his cross was turned in by Firmino at the far post.

It was 3-0 shortly after half time as Coutinho and Salah combined brilliantly before the Egyptian international laid if off to Firmino who make no mistake from 12 yards.

Brighton pulled one back in the 51st minute after being awarded a contentious penalty. Glenn Murray made no mistake from the resulting spot kick to make it 1-3.

However, Liverpool restored their three-goal advantage in the closing stages as Coutinho got the goal he deserved as he rolled a free-kick under the jumping wall to make it 4-1 in the 87th minute.

An own goal from Dunk following some superb play by Coutinho completed the rout as Liverpool climb above Arsenal in to fourth ahead of their clash with Man Utd this evening.
