Liverpool 3 Brighton 3: Fans give their opinion

THE Roberto De Zerbi era got off to a spectacular start with a six-goal thriller in Liverpool.

We asked these longtime Albion fans for their thoughts on what they’ve seen – and might follow.

What were your thoughts on Albion’s performance at Liverpool?

James Heasman: A great start for De Zerbi. Lots of positives, the players continued their good form and dominated Liverpool. I feel they are not a ‘poor Liverpool or Man Utd team’ but rather an exceptional Brighton team who deserve credit for regularly outplaying ‘so-called’ bigger teams.

Alan Brownings: Really good performance and exciting football, it’s not often you see an away team hat-trick at Anfield! Let’s hope De Zerbi’s ball continues in that direction and stays here.

Tim Ayling: Potterball on steroids. Especially in the first half it was a constant attacking wave and we looked like we could score at will. Defensively risky but nice to look at. The character they showed to come back from a 3-2 deficit shows the type of player we have here now. What a time to be a Brighton fan!

Colin Beales: We came out quick and direct and when Liverpool had time to take stock they were 2 down and probably should have been more. Liverpool then turned it on and we seemed to tire under the intensity and slip behind. Mitoma coming on gave us an advantage again, something to build on and Leandro didn’t want to miss his chance to take his hat-trick home and give us a well-deserved draw.

Who was your pick among the Albion players?

James Heasman: While I found Alexis MacAllister and Solly March to be very good, Leandro Trossard was exceptional. A great hat trick. It’s really important that he signs a new contract with Mac Allister.

Alan Brownings: After this stunning performance and top finish there can only be one, the only open question is how much Chelsea and Graham Potter are willing to pay. We’ll be sure to see Chelsea fill up their shopping cart again in January.

Tim Ayling: Trossard deservedly deservedly the credit, but it wasn’t just the goals. His all-around game was devastating. Mac Allister showed how important he is to us too. A special shout out to Mitoma who changed the game for us when he came on.

Colin Beales: Easiest pick of the season so far, Trossard.

Now that you’ve seen the first game, what do you expect from the De Zerbi era?

James Heasman: If anyone felt that playing Potter from behind was a bit risky at times, wait ’til you see De Zerbi’s team. The situations were sometimes very tight, but the players clearly believed in each other and played the right option most of the time, which led to attacks. His substitutions were also very good and paid off in the case of Mitoma. Get ready for an exciting ride!

Alan Brownings: Exciting football, a little more energy, extravagance and many more goals!

Tim Ayling: Goals, goals and goals. He feels like a natural progression from Potter. If we keep playing like this, Europe is realistic. I can’t wait for the game against Tottenham now.

Colin Beales: Expect is a big word. I expect him to do his best and do his best for the club but hope is something else. I hope he can build on the groundwork done by Tony Bloom to set the club up for success, build on the work of Potter and try to make Tony’s goal of becoming an established top ten team a reality. Oh, and some European football would be nice if that’s not too much to ask. Liverpool 3 Brighton 3: Fans give their opinion
