"We didn't concede a goal, nothing negative about that".

Klopp has been ensuring since his arrival at Anfield that the first-team group remain grounded, with bigger tests awaiting them in the future.

The Seagulls bounced back from their opening-day 2-0 loss at Watford with a 3-2 win over Manchester United last weekend. Regardless of the side picked, many supporters are predicting bad things for the away side - scroll down to see a snipped of the conversation and click through to see the rest.

The Premier League match between Liverpool and Brighton will be broadcast live on NBC. "One-nil is not a result we've had very often since I was in but I am very happy because it was the best we could get today".

Liverpool can not afford a slip-up at Anfield Road against a visiting Brighton team that are off to a great start.

"We conceded a very poor goal and you have to make sure you stick in the game", he said.

But Mohamed Salah's 23rd-minute strike following Yves Bissouma's error proved decisive, with Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson saving superbly from Pascal Gross late on.

The Mali midfielder was dispossessed by James Milner and Mo Salah slotted his 29th goal in 29 Premier League games at Anfield with clinical precision. "I like him a lot and he will be in our squad".

"Yes [a performance] to be proud of but we're disappointed as well because the form Liverpool are in you don't get many opportunities to get something from the game", Hughton told BT Sport.

"Over the 90 minutes, you know you've got to have a defence who throw their bodies in front of the ball, and a goalkeeper who's going to make a few good saves for you", he said.

"At 1-0 down, you expect Liverpool to push on, especially going into their favourite end of the ground, but we got stronger as the game went on and played a system that helped us".
