Leandro Trossard scored a hat-trick
Roberto De Zerbi succeeded Chris Hughton as head coach at Brighton & Hove Albion. Playing Liverpool at Anfield, Roberto’s side played out a 3-3 draw in their first game of the season.
The Italian looked set for a dream start as Seagulls boss when his team raced into a two-goal first-half lead thanks to Leandro Trossard.
Roberto Firmino scored two goals, both of which required checking for a VAR decision. After the first goal, Liverpool was back in the game with level scores.
The team looked set to win when from a corner, Adam Webster had to put the ball through his own net.
Trossard smashed in the winning goal six minutes from time at the Kop end.
