Salah's goal is his second in three games so far this seasonMohamed Salah's first-half strike moved Liverpool top of the Premier League table with a 1-0 victory over a stubborn Brighton side.Salah, who scored a record 38 goals in the Premier League last season, secured the three points with a clinical finish off the inside of the post.Jurgen Klopp's side were not at their fluid best, with their most dangerous moments coming before Salah struck.
After Sadio Mane poked a shot just wide, Roberto Firmino drew a smart save out of Mat Ryan with a downward header before Trent Alexander-Arnold hit the bar with a free-kick.Brighton claimed a stunning 3-2 win against Manchester United in their previous game but rarely threatened to follow that up with an upset at Anfield.They did, however, give the hosts some nervous moments in the closing stages and were denied a point when Alisson saved superbly from Pascal Gross' header.Liverpool are the only side to have taken maximum points from their three league games after reigning champions Manchester City dropped points at Wolves earlier on Saturday.Chelsea and Watford also boast a 100% record but have played one game fewer than Liverpool.
What happened in the Premier League on Saturday[/img]
Salah picking up from where he left off?
This was not Salah's best game - he overhit a couple of passes and sent at least two shots into the upper tiers of the stand - but he was still able to provide the one moment of quality to decide a generally forgettable encounter.Receiving the ball inside the area from fellow forward Mane, Salah looked up before superbly steering a left-footed shot just out of reach of Ryan and just inside the far post.It was his 29th goal in 29 games at Anfield and the 45th Premier League goal he has been directly involved in (34 goals and 11 assists) since the start of the last season - 12 more than any other player.He has two goals after three league games this season - the same as he had at this stage of his debut campaign with Liverpool last term.

Liverpool continue to press teams high up the pitch, with Mohamed Salah (11) at the forefront
Brighton beaten but not without a fight
Although this was Brighton's second defeat in three games, their fans are unlikely to be discouraged by what they have seen from their team this season.Their win against United was no fluke as they got in the faces of their opponents - showing no fear - and they displayed the same attitude at Liverpool.Attacking opportunities were limited as they focused on nullifying a Liverpool side that scored six goals in their first two games - and in that respect they largely succeeded.In May, Brighton were thumped 4-0 by Liverpool in the final game of the season, but only Alisson's late save denied them a point.The Seagulls appear to have come a long way in a short space of time and, if they continue to play in the style they have in their past two games, they have a strong chance of securing Premier League survival once again.
Man of the match - James Milner

Milner made the first goal by superbly chasing down a Brighton player and provided some much-needed physicality against difficult opposition
