Surprise Liverpool line-up was key in Brighton romp — Klopp

Georginio Wijnaldum took one for the team and played as a defender against Brighton
"It's always more difficult than 5-1 looks".
Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino doubled the visitors' lead less than 60 seconds later after Coutinho and Mohamed Salah carved open theBrighton defence.
And, agonisingly for the home side, Liverpool broke immediately with Salah again leading the way to the edge of theBrighton area before laying off for Firmino to score his second goal.
Jurgen Klopp was unlikely to admit it after his side's 5-1 win at Brighton, but when it came to the threadbare Liverpool defence at the Amex Stadium he got away with it. If Wednesday's 3-0 win over Stoke was efficient, this had far more flamboyance and ruthlessness. They adapted and did the job.
Liverpool will look to keep the pressure on the top four with a win when they take on Brighton at the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Firmino received the ball well inside the box and with no real challenge.
Liverpool are up to fourth.

The Brazilian was brought down by Dale Stephens just on the D of the penalty area, and a smart free kick from the former Inter Milan playmaker saw a low strike under the wall nestle into the net, to make it 4-1 to the visitors. A good job, done emphatically well.

Alan Pardew maintained his record of never losing his first Premier League game in charge of a club as his West Brom team were held to a 0-0 draw at home against Crystal Palace. Right outside the 18, Salah laid it off to Roberto Firmino, who had been coming up the rear in support.
Coutinho's passing accuracy, meanwhile, is at 73 per cent - 10% less than his usual standard, while Can's has dipped even further - from 85% to 70%.
It's a slightly odd experience watching Brighton in the Premier League after previously witnessing their dominance in the Championship.
"A few other changes not because of injuries, that's the situation, [we're] a little bit different in the defence line". In the Premier League, though, he's proved less effective.
"The biggest disappointment is that you have to stay in the game", said manager Chris Hughton.

One particular moment in the match underlined how even the basics are beyond too many of these players at present. Fraser Forster has been very good in goal and could win the starters job for England at next summer's World Cup.
