Liverpool on Twitter have been reflecting on a goal scored by Brighton & Hove Albion striker last season. 

This comes after Liverpool-focused Twitter account @empireofthekop shared a post on their page commemorating the one-year anniversary of a goal scored by Murray against Manchester City in Brighton’s 4-1 defeat to Pep Guardiola’s side.

2018/19 season quiz: How many points did Jurgen Klopp's side accumulate in the Premier League?

Murray opened the scoring on the final day of the 2018/19 season against City, but Brighton eventually lost the match, resulting in City becoming the first side since 2009 to retain the Premier League title (per Sky Sports).

This Liverpool page captioned their post claiming that Murray’s goal “sent all of Liverpool into delirium for all of 90 seconds” until Sergio Aguero equalised for the Citizens.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Liverpool who were quick to share their memories of this incident.

Here’s a sample of Liverpool responding to the post:

Did Liverpool deserve to win the league last season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

After Aguero equalised shortly after Murray’s opener, goals from Aymeric Laporte, Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan sealed the three points and the Premier League title for City. Now that Murray’s goal has been brought up again on Twitter, this paved the way for lots of Liverpool to share their memories and feelings of their short-lived jubilation.

What do we think?

It’s a shame that these Liverpool only had a short amount of time thinking they would be league champions last season until City went on to win the match and the Premier League title.
