|Mohamed Salah and Alisson Becker impress as Liverpool beat Brighton
| 188bet Liverpool get it doneLiverpool were a long way short of their best but perhaps it is a sign of their growing maturity that they were able to hold on for the win without too much cause for concern. They could not build on Mohamed Salah's first-half goal, his second of the season so far, but in the end it did not matter.
Salah still the manThe reigning PFA and FWA Player of the Year has picked up where he left off last season. Salah has now scored two goals and provided one assist in his first three appearances of the campaign, and his latest strike was the difference between three points and one. Since joining Liverpool last summer, Salah has scored 29 goals in 29 games for Liverpool at Anfield.
Another clean sheetSalah will take the headlines but Liverpool's defensive improvement is the most striking thing about their strong start to the season. 188bet Jurgen Klopp's side did not manage three consecutive Premier League clean sheets at any point last season, but their once-creaky defence has been shored up impressively.
Alexander-Arnold impressesAlexander-Arnold is still six weeks shy of his 20th birthday but he has made Liverpool's right-back spot his own. The academy graduate's maturity is impressive and it's clear to his team-mates too. They have even started standing aside for him at set pieces. In the 15th minute, he crashed one curling effort against Brighton's crossbar.
Alisson's composureOne of the highlights of the second half came in the 68th minute, when Van Dijk under-hit a backpass towards Alisson. The Liverpool goalkeeper had Anthony Knockaert bearing down on him at full speed, 188bet but instead of booting the ball into the stands, he chipped it over Knockaert's head and rolled a pass back to Van Dijk. It was an outrageous moment which drew cheers from the home crowd and summed up the Brazilian's extraordinary composure.
