Klopp reveals he feared another collapse against Brighton

Liverpool thrashed Brighton and Hove Albion 5-1 on Saturday.

but Jurgen Klopp was a little worried when the score was 3-1.

Jurgen Klopp has conceded he feared a three-goal collapse similar to that suffered against Sevilla when Liverpool thrashed Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

The Reds found themselves 3-0 up at the Amex Stadium shortly after half-time thanks to an Emre Can goal and a Roberto Firmino double.

But Glenn Murray’s 51st-minute penalty evoked memories of Liverpool’s remarkable 3-3 draw at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on November 21, when Sevilla battled back from 3-0 down.

Ultimately, Philippe Coutinho and a Lewis Dunk own goal wrapped things up for Liverpool late on, but Klopp acknowledged that he did have concerns when Brighton pulled one back.
