Leandro Trossard left Anfield stunned as his hat-trick secured a 3-3 draw with Liverpool in Roberto De Zerbi’s first game as the new Brighton manager.
The Seagulls ace is the first opposition player to score three Premier League goals at home against Liverpool since Andrey Arshavin netted four for Arsenal back in 2009.
It looked like Liverpool were in for a rough night from the off when Trossard spun an under-pressure Trent Alexander-Arnold and fired home to open the scoring just four minutes in.
Things soon got worse when the Belgian doubled Brighton’s lead, but an in-form Roberto Firmino then had his say.
The Brazilian matched Trossard’s two goals before Adam Webster turned the ball into his own net to complete the Reds’ comeback.
However, there was more drama to come when Liverpool completely failed to deal with a cross into the box, allowing Trossard to sweep home once more in the 83rd minute.
