LuaLua strikes but Albion are hammered
Kazenga LuaLua scored a cracker in front of the Kop – but three own goals helped send Albion spinning out of the FA Cup.
The Seagulls were thumped 6-1 by Liverpool in the fifth round as Liam Bridcutt (twice) and Lewis Dunk were debited with OGs.
Martin Skrtel and Andy Carroll also netted and Luis Suarez added a late sixth having earlier had a penalty saved by Peter Brezovan.
LuaLua's terrific free-kick on 17 minutes gave the Seagulls parity after going behind early.
They conceded in only the fifth minute as Skrtel headed home a Steven Gerrard corner at the near post.
The Seagulls settled, though, knocked the ball around and levelled in stunning style 12 minutes later.
LuaLua won a free-kick with a mazy run, then thrashed his 30-yarder low past Pepe Reina's right hand.
Albion played some nice stuff and looked comfortable in possession.
But Liverpool carried the greater threat.
Suarez thought he had scored when he beat a couple of tackles and rolled a shot past Brezovan but Inigo Calderon got back to divert the ball over his own bar.
Brezovan tipped a curling Gerrard free-kick over the bar on 43 minutes but the resulting corner saw Liverpool regain the lead in scrappy style.
A Suarez shot was blocked, Glen Johnson headed the ball goalwards and Sam Vokes headed off the line – only for the ball to hit Bridcutt and bounce in.
Liverpool made a terrific start to the second half and Carroll flashed a left-foot shot past Brezovan after Stewart Downing had cut the ball back.
That quality finish was followed by two bizarre goals.
First Bridcutt inadvertently diverted Gerrard's driven low cross into his own after an error by Alan Navarro.
Then the otherwise outstanding Dunk bizarrely juggled the ball into his own trying to clear a cross.
Suarez added a close-range sixth from Carroll's far-post knockdown on 85 minutes, having been outwitted by Brezovan from the penalty spot a few minutes earlier.
