Five others were ejected from the American Express Community Stadium (the Amex), Sussex Police said.

The force said: “Sussex Police arrested two people and five others were ejected from the stadium by stewards and police at this weekend’s Brighton fixture.

“A 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of being in the possession of a flare under section 2 of the Sporting Events Act 1985.

“He has since been released under investigation.

“A 37-year-old man from Bexhill was arrested on suspicion of throwing a missile on to the pitch under section 2 of the Football Offences Act 1991.

Liverpool thrashed Albion 5-1, inflicting the heaviest home defeat on Brighton since they moved to the Falmer stadium six and a half years ago.
