Mohamed Salah’s penalty extended Liverpool’s lead at the top of the Premier League to seven points after a workmanlike display at Brighton.

Jurgen Klopp’s side dominated possession against their cagey hosts but created little until Salah was felled in the area by Pascal Gross.

The Egyptian duly lashed the spot-kick left-footed across his body and high into the net for a 17th goal of the season.

Brighton briefly rallied, with Fabinho – at the heart of Liverpool’s defence for the injured Dejan Lovren – producing a key block to deny Gross in the area.

It helped Liverpool to a gritty win on a day they were far from their fluent best but comfortably lengthened their advantage in the title race, with third-placed Tottenham playing on Sunday and nearest rivals Manchester City not in action until Monday.
