Milner reacts to Liverpools win over Brighton

Liverpool player James Milner has praised the performance of Brighton and Hove Albion in his side's 1-0 win over Chris Hughton's men in the Premier League on Saturday.

Mohamed Salah's 23rd minute goal gave the Reds the win, ensuring their third Premier League victory in as many games this season.

The win also meant that Jurgen Klopp's side have recorded their third clean sheet in the league this term.

Moving forward, the former Manchester City man believes that Liverpool can play better than they have done against Brighton.

Speaking after the game, Milner said: "Brighton were strong, organised and have good players going forward too so it was never going to be easy. But we kept a clean sheet and got a win. We know we can play better but we got the result."

The win takes Liverpool to the top of the table, two points above champions Manchester City, with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur having the chance to close the gap when they face Newcastle and Manchester United on Sunday and Monday respectively.
