Football: Van Dijk nets double as Liverpool surge 11 points clear
Liverpool, who also equalled their unbeaten top flight run of 31 games set between May 1987 and March 1988, have 40 points from 14 games, with second-placed champions Manchester City on 29 after they were held to a 2-2 draw at Newcastle United.
It was a nervy record-extending 14th successive Premier League win at home for Liverpool, who missed a string of chances either side of Van Dijk's double before they were forced to defend desperately in the closing stages.
"We put him in that situation but it is what it is. We have to deal with it. It is a disappointment but we go again.
"They (Brighton) are a good side. They play football and take risks. It's not easy. We should have gone better than we did in the second half but you have to give them credit as well."
Centre back Lewis Dunk missed two chances to pull one back for Brighton, sending a shot wide from close range shortly before halftime and then glancing a header inches wide of the far post in the 54th minute.
Brighton pressed for an equaliser and Adrian parried an Aaron Mooy piledriver in the 85th minute as the home side held on, much to the delight of the packed crowd at Anfield.Read more: CNA
