Superb stoppage-time winner Kaoru Mitoma secured Brighton and Hove Albion a 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Sunday to eliminate the FA Cup winners.
The draw appeared to be heading back to Anfield for a 1–1 replay but a fit Mitoma scored an impressive late goal to take Brighton to the fifth round.
Liverpool took the lead through Harvey Elliott in an interesting first half, but Brighton proved themselves well after Lewis Dunk equalized nine minutes later.
Brighton’s continued positive attitude in the second half appeared to go unrewarded, but Mitoma’s ball juggling and composure set off bedlam at the Amex Stadium as Liverpool’s FA Cup defense collapsed.
FT: UNTIL THE FIFTH ROUND!
