Decent(ish) first half, terrible in the second.

Good to see selections based on form for the midfield (until the subs) - shame we don't have enough fit players to do the same for the forwards.

Really bad second half even before the subs. Our build up needs to be a lot better in this set up, going to be plenty free days to work on it I guess.

Another set piece goal conceded, not great.

Fabinho needs to be sat for the rest of the season, all time bad sub appearance. We'd be better off giving another acadmey player his minutes and seeing what happens.

It will come good you bunch of p*ssies! A solid first half to build upon at least, miles away from the last time we played them. I think one thing this period has made clear, Fabinho is finished here, woeful cameo.

In the long term more of a break from playing will probably be good for the players. Just need to focus on the champs league and top 4 now.

Bringing on Fab and Curtis absolutely killed us, thought we were decent until then.

Bajcetic is indispensible, the drop off after him is truly worrying.
And Salah's form is not helping, honestly think Doak brings more.

We were controlling the game for large parts of it. Think the midfield substitutions killed us though. Fabinho clearly suffering from a lack of confidence, an excellent player doesn’t become a bad one overnight.

It is all a bit dysfunctional at the minute, don’t think we deserved to lose though.

Much better fight and work rate than the league game but the attack was awful after the subs. What minute of that game did we last have a shot?

We've become Rodgers-esque at defending set plays out of nowhere.

Overall performance wasn’t too bad until the final few minutes. Deserved to lose ultimately. Fab and Konate lucky to escape red cards. Absolutely dreadful game management at the end too. Some positives to cling to, but the confidence is so fragile right now.

And that should be alarming for absolutely everyone. Brighton are decent, maybe even good but that was as well as we’ve played for ages until Fabinho happened. That got us … a 50/50 game against Brighton and Hove Albion.

First half was much better. Substitutions killed the game and the lack of options is terrifying. Just look at the players we brought on today.

A few of the injured lads back makes a big difference but even still, the fact a youngster is now indispensable to our midfield says it all. A trophy less season and Top 4 unlikely.

Makes me realise how spoilt we really were.

Second half was ok I thought, certainly didn't feel the first set of subs were as bad as people are making out, I thought it gave us a different energy and caused Brighton some problems. But that 4-4-2 defending killed us and Fabinho looks completely shot. That's one of the worst cameos I've ever seen. Mitoma's goal was high quality.

We played way better than we did 3 weeks ago. Their first goal was a complete fluke - onwards and upwards, our midfield is complete garbage.

FFS. Before the free kick was taken I was shouting at my son "whos got that fucker at the back post"

Milner sees him and doesnt call anyone across, leaves him free. gets blocked off... christ sake

All the badge kissing in the world don't make up for the fact that they are, frankly, not Liverpool Football Club. It's not their fault. Its just how it is.

Thought for 80% of that we were quite good, the other 20% we were shambolic though.  We're in a massive rut and it's really difficult to get yourself out of these positions.  Brighton are a cracking club though, good ethos, play the right way and their fans seem decent.  Hope they do well.

As for Fabinho, terrible, should be off (but then so should Konate, but at least he played well).

We were much better 2nd half. Almost looked like our old self at times but we never worked their keeper. Just not happening with the final pass.

We went to absolute shit though once Fabinho came on. Not sure if it was just him as we also had jones come on shortly before but his yellow card changed the atmosphere and we lost momentum.

Mitoma looks decent. And we need midfield reinforcements.

Poor performance from almost the whole team bar Konate and Alisson.

However Mac Allister only got to the ball before Robertson by jumping two footed into the tackle. He wasn’t in control and it was dangerous. Ref buys it and gives them a free kick. Almost every time we went in strong he gave them a free kick.

However it doesn’t gloss over the fact that our passing, control and winning the 2nd ball was poor.

That long throw at the end sums up at the moment. Going absolutely nowhere, devoid of intensity or quality. We played.ok today but nothing more. Keeper didn't have to make a save second half. We were sloppy in the run up to the free kick for the winning goal but some finish that.

Remember when we actually had forwards with the composure to finish like Mitoma did?  They're either out injured or so totally lacking in confidence at present.  I can't imagine anyone in our side right now who could have created that last goal.

I thought the subs were spot on until....    Fab.  Good god.  We looked lively and dangerous with Darwin, Hendo, and Milner and then Jones.  Things went completely south once the Badger went out.  Would rather see Hendo play the 6 and put Ox or really anyone else in MF besides Fabinho. 

I think the replay would have done us good and helped maybe get us into some rhythm.

Thought the midfield was doing ok until Milner and Henderson came on. Two players who just don't have the athleticism to play at this level anymore. Also, wtf Fabinho. Not sure I've seen a player take a bigger nosedive in quality.

It doesn't even hurt anymore and hasn't for a while. Not sure I've seen a team give away so many needless fouls, which feels indicative of a team who simply aren't there mentally. There is no doubt in my mind that Brighton are a better team than us. Not sure who I'd miss in this team if they left, except Alisson honestly.

Shocking to be honest, no hiding from it. The lame excuses will be wheeled out and you'd think we were up against the best in Europe today, rather than a side who've never played in it.
Could have been a lot worse too without the Ref on our side.
