When a team like Brighton can host a team like Liverpool and fancy their chances, you know that we’re in the middle of an incredible Premier League season.

The Seagulls have been one of the most enjoyable teams to watch so far this season and thoroughly deserve their top-eight standing. Their achievements are exceptional for a club that has spent very little in the transfer market over the years.

At home, they bring passion, organisation and quality that makes them very hard to live with. Opposition teams know that they must be at their best to claim three points.

That is the challenge facing Liverpool, then. Jurgen Klopp’s men continue to be plagued with multiple injuries, now including Virgil van Dijk, and continued criticism about players in key positions.

While they remain a phenomenal team, they are not able to produce the wonderful football on a weekly basis that has typified Jurgen Klopp’s reign.

They badly need a win here.

Brighton & Hove Albion Preview

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Have 32 goals from their 17 games this season – twice as many as this stage last season

     Wins over United and Chelsea prove that they can beat the big teams

Reasons to be fearful:

     Haven’t won any of their last 10 home games against Liverpool

     Up against a Liverpool side desperate for wins

Brighton have good reason to be optimistic these days, with the club enjoying its best season in the Premier League and with an exciting manager committed to the club.

Although the top four is out of reach for Roberto De Zerbi’s men, they will be targeting the European places below them as a realistic possibility this season. 

Fulham, also enjoying a fantastic season, are a point and a place better off, while Liverpool are struggling in 6th. Above them, Tottenham are also showing inconsistency in their performances and results.

After Liverpool, a string of fixtures against the likes of Leicester, Bournemouth, Palace and Fulham all present winnable opportunities for the Seagulls.

They claimed a 3-3 draw against Liverpool earlier in the season and they will feel that they can press their opponents hard once again here.

Star Man – Leandro Trossard

The Belgian is causing a stir in the transfer market, with Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea all reportedly interested. His hattrick against Liverpool earlier in the season was the highlight of a brilliant start to 2022/23.

Liverpool FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

     Unbeaten in last 10 visits to the Amex Stadium

     Cody Gakpo in line to make his Premier League debut

Reasons to be fearful

     Virgil van Dijk’s injury is a huge blow in defence

     Have the league’s lowest away points ratio – 28%

Liverpool have only collected 28% of their points away from home this season – the worst ratio in the Premier League.

They have suffered embarrassing defeats against the likes of Brentford, Nottingham Forest, Arsenal and Manchester United.

To add to that concern, key defender Virgil van Dijk now faces up to a couple of months on the sidelines with an injury. Dias, Jota, Arthur and Milner are also on the treatment table.

They were run ragged at times in their 3-3 draw against Brighton earlier in the season, but as often happens with Liverpool, their exceptional forwards dragged them through. 

Salah remains supreme, while new signing Cody Gakpo should keep his place in the team after playing his first game in the FA Cup last weekend.

Star Man – Mo Salah

Where would Liverpool be without Mo Salah? The Egyptian keeps on delivering time and again for his club. He now has 17 goals from his 26 appearances this season and continues to drag his side through difficult times.

     Should be plenty of attacking chances at both ends

     Salah or Nunez to score

     Brighton will get on the scoresheet

During Jurgen Klopp’s reign, Liverpool have often found a way of responding to criticism with powerful performances. 

Defeats are often followed by victories, especially when their last league game was a 3-1 loss to Brentford. Klopp will ensure his players are fully committed to the cause, even if he has a number of injuries to contend with.

Brighton will fight to the last and will almost certainly find the net themselves. The question will be whether they can hold out against this fearsome Liverpool attack for 90 minutes.
