(Reuters) - Liverpool opened up a seven point gap at the top of the Premier League after a narrow 1-0 win at Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, while Arsenal’s poor away form continued with a 1-0 defeat at West Ham United.

West Ham comfortably held on after Rice became the first teenager to score a Premier League goal for West Ham in almost 10 years.

Arsenal failed to close the gap with fourth-placed Chelsea — who play Newcastle United in Saturday’s late kick off — as Declan Rice’s first-ever West Ham goal gave his side a first home league win over Arsenal since 2006.

With nearest challengers Manchester City not playing until Monday, Liverpool came into their clash at Brighton on the back of two successive defeats in all competitions, and were made to work hard for the three points.

Pascal Gross’s clumsy challenge on Salah earned Liverpool the penalty which the Egyptian converted with aplomb.

“It’s a bad result for us,” Arsenal manager Unai Emery said.

On Saturday, having mustered just two shots on target against West Ham at the London Stadium, Arsenal’s decline continued.
