Liverpool sets new Premier League record with Brighton win

It was another one for the record books as Liverpool continue their quest for a record finish in the Premier League with a win over Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday. The Reds made it 30 wins in 34 outings this season with the night's 3-1 victory, becoming the fastest club in history to achieve the feat.

There was no time for niceties as Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson ensured that Jurgen Klopp's men were two goals ahead inside the first eight minutes. The former secured his first of the night after Naby Keita found him with a through ball following a defensive mistake by Pröpper. Less than 180 seconds later, his captain slotted home from a distance after yet another defensive howler.

On the brink of half-time, Brighton pulled one back through Trossard following a well-worked move. However, the two-goal advantage was restored after Mohamed Salah smashed home his side's third with a pass from Sadio Mane.

Together win the Senegalese attacker and Roberto Firmino, the trio have hit a milestone of 250 goals under Jurgen Klopp. Meanwhile, their side still remains on course to break Manchester City's record points haul in a single season with four games left.
