Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray conceded that errors in key moments of Saturday’s 5-1 loss to Liverpool cost the side, as they lost at home in the league for the first time in five matches.

Although on the scoresheet himself in the second half for the hosts, the forward admitted that their opponents took advantage during key incidents in the match.

He said: "We knew what Liverpool were capable of and we made some naive mistakes this afternoon, that's what you get when you come up against the big boys.

"Yes, things could have gone differently if my chance went in and even though it didn't, we can't let them go up and the other end and concede ten seconds later, that's what I mean by naive mistakes.

"We're disappointed but it's all about how we come back from this now.”

The win for Jurgen Klopp’s men means that the Merseyside team have now picked up 16 points from the last 18 possible in the league.

Murray pointed to their attacking qualities as being key to their good form, but also emphasised that his side didn’t hit the heights they know they’re capable of after the form shown over recent weeks.

"They've got quality going forward, it's all about stopping that then seeing what we can get off the back of that but we weren't at our best today, we never really got going or got our foot on the ball.

"Credit to Liverpool, their high press killed us a little bit, it's one to forget for us.

Next up for Chris Hughton’s men is a game away to Huddersfield at the John Smith’s on Saturday, and the forward highlighted the need for a reaction from the side after the disappointing result at the Amex Stadium.

"It's one of those things that are going to happen to a newly-promoted Premier League club, you expect it to happen and it's all about how we react now."
