Liverpool proved that they are ready to deal with the pressure that comes with being in a title race against Brighton on Saturday.

The Reds were coming off of their first defeat in the league, Manchester City breathing down their necks following that 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium.

But Jurgen Klopp’s side bounced back with a hard-fought 1-0 victory at the Amex Stadium.

Chris Hughton’s side didn’t make things easy for Liverpool, defending deep and limiting the space.

But the visitors' possessional dominance told when Mohamed Salah was brought down inside the penalty area early in the second half.

Salah netted the resulting spot-kick and Liverpool saw out the rest of the half without any trouble.

The pressure is now on Man City to deliver three points against Wolves on Monday.

MOTD commentator slips up

Liverpool hold a seven-point lead over Pep Guardiola’s side and they’re showing everything you’d expect from a side aiming to win the title.

There’s still plenty of games to go, however. Klopp can’t allow his players to get ahead of themselves.

Yet it seems as though BBC commentator Jonathan Pearce is ready to do just that.

Pearce was the commentator on Match of the Day and he had an awkward slip of the tongue, mistakenly calling Liverpool ‘the champions’.

“Have they got enough, Chris Hughton’s side, to get back into it against the champions?” Pearce said shortly after Salah scored.

It was just a mistake, of course, but football fans all heard it.

“Jonathan Pearce letting the cat out of the bag. The league is fixed,” wrote @dankthemanc, who is a Man City fan.

It seems at this point that rival supporters will look for any reason to diminish Liverpool’s bid to win the title.

The thought of seeing Jurgen Klopp with the trophy in his hands is simply too much for some supporters.

talkSPORT recently tweeted a clip of Man United fans discussing the idea of Liverpool becoming champions.

One fan even says he’ll emigrate if Klopp’s side goes all the way.

The meltdown will be just incredible.
