BRIGHTON striker Neal Maupay suffered a day to forget against Liverpool – missing a penalty before going off injured.

Just 20 minutes had passed in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off when the Seagulls were given a glorious chance to open the scoring.

Neco Williams felled Aaron Connolly in the box and referee Stuart Attwell pointed to the spot.

Even though Alisson Becker dived the wrong way, Maupay’s hard and low shot flew wide of the post.

And the Frenchman’s afternoon got even worse just moments later.

After a fairly innocuous piece of play, he hit the deck and required treatment.

Brighton’s physios decided that Maupay could not continue and he was taken out of the game, to be replaced by Leandro Trossard.
