Match preview

Just 15 days after meeting in the Premier League, Brighton and Liverpool go head-to-head once again.

That day, the Seagulls beat the Reds at home for the first time since 1984, doing so in style, with Solly March bagging a brace, before Danny Welbeck completed a famous 3-0 win, with a sublime finish.

Having also drawn 3-3 at Anfield in October, Brighton have lost just one of their last six against Liverpool, so may well come into this tie as favourites.

In the previous round, Roberto De Zerbi’s team demolished Middlesbrough 5-1 at the Riverside; Pascal Groß, Adam Lallana, Alexis Mac Allister and Deniz Undav all scoring.

Meantime, in the Premier League, the Seagulls are soaring, sat sixth, having accumulated 16 points from their last eight games.

So, can the 1983 runners-up knock out the cup holders here?

As for Liverpool, they won both domestic cups, reached the Champions League Final and missed out on the title by just a solitary point last season.

This time round, Jürgen Klopp’s team are languishing in ninth place, and are still yet to win a league game in 2023.

Last weekend’s bore goalless draw with Chelsea at Anfield highlight the deficients of both teams just now.

In round three, Liverpool needed a replay to overcome Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Following a thrilling 2-2 draw on Merseyside, Harvey Elliott’s rocket was the difference in a rather less eventful replay at Molineux.

So, having been humiliated when they last visited Sussex just over a fortnight ago, Liverpool supporters will, understandably, be traveling south with a sense of foreboding.

Will all involved expirence a sense of déjà vu at the Amex?

Brighton & Hove Albion team news

Given that their next Premier League game is against Bournemouth next weekend, expect Roberto De Zerbi to put out his strongest team here.

The headline news is that Moisés Caicedo will not be involved after publicly declaring his desire to join Arsenal on Friday.

It’ll be interesting to see if the Ecuadorian does move to the current league-leaders before Tuesday’s deadline.

In the middle, Jan Paul van Hecke did not impress on his Premier League debut against Leicester, so fit again Adam Webster is set to come back in alongside Lewis Dunk.

Kaoru Mitoma has scored five goals this season, all coming since 5 November, so will be seeking to further improve that tally here.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Sánchez; Lamptey, Webster, Dunk, Estupiñán; Mac Allister, Groß, March; Mitoma, Welbeck, Ferguson.

Liverpool team news

Caoimhín Kelleher will deputise for Alisson in goal, but it’ll be interesting to see how many outfield changes Jürgen Klopp decides to make.

Virgil van Dijk, Diogo Jota and Luis Díaz are out long-term, but Darwin Núñez is fit again, which is a boost.

18 year old Stefan Bajčetić is likely to keep his place in midfield, having impressed in recent weeks.

January signing Cody Gakpo is still seeking his first goal for the club in, what will be, his fifth appearance.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Kelleher; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Konaté, Tsimikas; Bajčetić, Keïta, Elliott; Salah, Gakpo, Nùñez.
