I will never forget the goal at my dream stadium Anfield – Mwepu

Zambian midfielder Enock Mwepu says he will never forget scoring a goal at his dream stadium, Anfield.

Mwepu, who has been a Liverpool fan since childhood, stole the show on Saturday, 30th October 2021 as he netted a beauty of a goal to cut Liverpool’s lead in half before the break as the Seagulls fought back from two goals down to a 2-2 draw.

The Chipolopolo Boys skipper sent an exquisite cross-shot over into the box, and it just managed to squeeze between the crossbar and the fingertips of Allison into the back of the net, opening his English Premier League goal account.

“The Liverpool goal is something special, I don’t know if I will never forget that moment. So far that’s the most special moment I would say. At that moment, you are two-nil down and you score, you really can’t celebrate as much, we wanted to get points and not just the goal. It was special to me that, I scored at my dream stadium, It was just special and I will never forget that moment,” Mwepu told Albion TV in an interview.

The former Power Dynamos player has admitted that adapting in England has not been easy but he feels the season has been great for him generally despite some injury setbacks.

“For me, this season has been great generally, I have had some injury setback here and there but that has not stopped me. I have made some good assists, we have picked up some good points, being involved in the team it’s something that I always enjoy. I’m looking forward to being involved in more of our successes this season but so far it’s been good,” he said.

“It has not been easy, the intensity and physicality are on another level but as a player, you have to adapt, of course for me the weather is something that I found difficult to adapt to but the speed and intensity is adaptable, and am doing everything possible in the gym and training to get to that level and so far I think am getting there.”

Mwepu who is nicknamed the computer says there is a lot more to come from him and what the Seagulls fans have seen is just a glimpse.

Mwepu was also quick to heap praise on the fans who have been amazing in supporting the team.

“If you look at the goal and the assists you can tell that’s a bit of the computer so definitely you will see more of that,” he said.

“Our fans are amazing, they boost us and give us the energy, They deserve the credit, We the players want to win for them so that we can celebrate with them at the end. I also want to learn the song they sing when we are at home so that I can also sing with them it is something that motivates me when going into the game,” Mwepu added.

The Computer is also massively supported in Zambia and he says it gives him the energy to play even better.

“Ever since I joined Brighton and Hove Albion they have been very supportive and watching all the games, I feel the attachment, and every time I go on the pitch I know every Zambian is watching and that gives me energy and empowers me to play better.”

Mwepu has been involved in 14 matches in all competitions with two goals and four assists to his name.
