Brighton vs. Liverpool Match Analysis and Prediction

Liverpool has a golden chance to move on top of the Premier League this weekend when they welcome Brighton at Anfield. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 3:30 pm.

The reigning champions currently sit level with points with Tottenham Spurs with an inferior goal difference. The side head into the match after a disappointing midweek clash in the Champions League to Atalanta.

Liverpool’s toll of injuries keeps growing with each match, and it is becoming a problem for Jurgen to deal with. However, Klopp seems to charge the injury crisis with temporal replacements creating the needed spark, especially with their weekend 3-0 win over Leicester City.

The side head into the match following a disappointing 2-0 loss to Atalanta at Anfield. Atalanta’s loss saw the side fail to secure a spot in the last 16 in the Champions League with two games to spare.

The result left a shock on the face of Jurgen Klopp, marking the first time in 137 matches that Liverpool have lost a competitive match at Anfield by more than one goal. The last time the side succumbed to a loss at Anfield was back in September 2018.

On the other hand, Brighton’s last four Premier League matches have all come away from home. It includes last weekend’s 2-1 victory against Aston Villa that hammered their opponents 7-2 earlier in the season.

Brighton Team News

Graham Potter will be without the services of promising young Lamptey, who picked a red card during their win against Aston Villa. Potter receives significant injury boosts for the side with the returns of Trossard and Lallana. However, it remains a doubt whether March might feature.

Liverpool Team News

Klopp heads into the match without many first-team players, including Alexander-Arnold, Nabby Keita, Thiago, and Van Dijk. However, Captain Henderson is back from injury and will feel the void in the midfield. After a fruitless start during their Champions League clash, Divock Origi might start on the bench.
