Liverpool vs Brighton & Hove Albion – 101 Great Goals prediction: Liverpool 3-1 Brighton

Liverpool to beat Brighton 3-1 is 10/1 with Bet365

With the Champions League final still to come, Liverpool will not want to risk too many of their star players.

But, Liverpool need to win this to ensure Chelsea don’t have any hope of finishing in the top four.

A draw will do for Liverpool, but Jurgen Klopp’s side are likely to go all out for the win.

Brighton have secured Premier League safety, and if last season is anything to go by, will be firmly on the beach already.

Liverpool vs Brighton: Who will win?

Liverpool chances of winning at home to Brighton are rated by the bookies at 1/5.

Brighton to pull off a surprise win at Anfield is seen by the bookies as unlikely: 14/1.

Liverpool vs Brighton: Premier League preview

Liverpool host Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield on Sunday for the final day of the Premier League season.

A win for Brighton could see them finish as high as 10th, depending on other results. Chris Hughton’s side lost 3-1 away at champions Manchester City in midweek, ending their three-match unbeaten run.

The Reds have won just one of their last five matches in all competitions and lost two on the spin.

Last weekend, Jurgen Klopp’s side lost 1-0 at Chelsea. The result leaves Liverpool 4th, not yet guaranteed a place in the top four. Due to their superior goal difference over Chelsea, Liverpool only need a point to guarantee Champions League football next season via their league position.

Liverpool were 5-1 winners at the Amex in the reverse fixture in December. Emre Can, Roberto Firmino (2), Philippe Coutinho and a Lewis Dunk own goal saw the Reds cruise to victory. Glenn Murray scored a consolation penalty in the second half.

Liverpool to win, Mohamed Salah to have 5+ shots and James Milner to win 4+ tackles: 9/2 with Ladbrokes
