In the 18th minute of this afternoon’s Premier League clash between Liverpool and Brighton, the Seagulls were awarded a spot-kick after Neco Williams recklessly cut down Aaron Connolly.
An upset looked like it was about to be on the cards, but it was Neal Maupay who was left red-faced after the Frenchman sent his penalty wide of the post.
Maupay targeted the bottom-right corner, with Alisson Becker diving the opposite side, the ball rolled out of play and the striker was left furious.
Maupay MISSES from the spot! ??

Liverpool are lucky that they aren’t behind, all thanks to Neal Maupay.
