Hughton: “Decisions favored Liverpool”

Brighton manager Chris Hughton felt that the bulk of decisions went Liverpool’s way in their 1-0 home defeat to the league leaders.

Mo Salah converted from the spot to give Liverpool a crucial 1-0 win at Brighton after the Egyptian was judged to have been fouled by Pascal Gross.

Hughton, however, had no complaints about the penalty but believes that plenty other decisions favored them.

“There’s no intent and referees have a hard job, but sometimes you feel things go your way and sometimes you feel some of the decisions don’t go your way,” Hughton told Sky Sports.

“I felt today it was one of those days. No malice or anything towards the referee but I thought the bulk of decisions favored Liverpool today.

“On the balance of play, I thought we deserved something.

“They are such a good side and the opportunities they had were when we were trying to get back into the game and put bodies forward and made the game a bit more open. I thought we restricted them to minimal chances.

“Pascal Gross’ chance [a shot in the second half] was probably as good as any of their chances.

“We were always in the game and discipline was really good from the team, which it has to be because they can open you up.

“In the latter part of the game we went for it a bit and showed a real intent to get back on level terms and I thought for the feel of the game that we deserved something.”
