Liverpool lost to Brighton and was eliminated from the FA Cup Round of 32…Failed to win two games in a row.
Liverpool, an English professional football team, lost to Brighton Hove Albion in the FA Cup and was eliminated from the round of 32 and gave up its dream of winning for the second consecutive year.
Liverpool lost 2-1 to Brighton in the fourth round (32nd round) of the 2022-2023 FA Cup at Amex Stadium in Palmer, England.
Liverpool, which won its eighth FA Cup title last season, failed to defend its title.
Liverpool, which finished second in the English Premier League last season, finished second in the UEFA Champions League, and won the FA Cup and League Cup (Carabao Cup), continues to struggle this season.
He finished ninth in the Premier League (8 wins, 5 draws, 6 losses, 29 points), which is already far from the championship, and was eliminated last month after losing to Manchester City in the fourth round of the League Cup (round of 16).
In the FA Cup, he managed to reach the fourth round after a rematch against Wolverhampton, a lower-ranked team in the league in the third round, but he turned around after being caught by Brighton.
Liverpool can now challenge for the championship only in the Champions League ahead of the round of 16, but it is not expected to be an easy challenge because the opponent in the round of 16 is Real Madrid (Spain), the winner of last season.

On the other hand, Brighton, which ranks sixth in the league this season (9 wins, 4 draws, 6 losses, 31 points), entered the round of 16 in the FA Cup for the first time in two years since the 2020-2021 season.
Brighton, who lost to Leicester City at the time and could not reach the quarterfinals, is aiming to advance to the quarterfinals for the first time in five years since the 2017-2018 season.
Liverpool started the game well.
In the 30th minute of the first half, Harvey Elliott finished the pass that Muhammad Salah sent through the right side with his right foot inside the penalty area and took the lead first.
However, Brighton succeeded in striking back in nine minutes.
Tariq Lampti connected the ball cleared by Liverpool’s defense with a mid-range shot from behind the penalty arc, and it was deflected by Luis Dunk’s foot inside the penalty area, making it an equalizer.
The balance that followed was broken only in the second half of the extra time.
