Liverpool team news & predicted line-up vs Brighton

In this piece, we take a look at the latest Liverpool team news ahead of their upcoming Premier League clash with Brighton.


Liverpool’s return to form was ended earlier this month when they fell to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Brentford.

The Reds then drew 2-2 with Wolves in the FA Cup – a tie they should have lost if not for VAR.

Liverpool head into Saturday’s game sat 7th in the league and in desperate need of three points if they are to claim a Champions League place.

Darwin Nunez missed training in the build-up to the weekend’s action and is not expected to start vs the Seagulls.

Elsewhere, Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz are long-term absentees, with the latter expected back in March and Jota in early February.

Virgil van Dijk picked up a thigh injury last week and is out for a few weeks: “It’s not short-term, and I had longer-term injuries as well in my career as a manager. So, it’s somewhere in between. He will be out for a few weeks, definitely,” Klopp said.

Both James Milner and Roberto Firmino suffered injuries in late December but are expected to be fit enough to feature on Saturday.

Arthur Melo remains sidelined with a thigh injury.
