Brighton welcomes Liverpool to the Falmer Stadium on Saturday for this Premier League match. Falmer Stadium has been a good hunting ground for The Reds. Their four Premier League visits here have seen three Liverpool wins and a draw. Brighton’s only home win against Liverpool came in the FA Cup Fourth Round back in 1984 with Brighton eliminating Joe Fagan’s Reds, who would go on to win the league and European Cup double that season.
While Graham Potter’s side have been widely hailed this season, they are yet to beat any team above them in the table on points. Leicester City, who are one place above Brighton on goal difference, are the highest-ranked side they have defeated in the Premier League this season. Newcastle United are the only other side yet to beat a team in the top half of the table this season.
Of course, the other perspective on that is they have lost very few games against sides in the top half of the table. Of their eleven matches against the league’s top ten, they have lost only three times. Manchester City, Wolves and Manchester United are the three clubs coming out on top against them this season. This highlights how difficult a task it may be for Jurgen Klopp’s Reds to take all three points home on Saturday, especially given the fact they already drew 2-2 with the Seagulls at Anfield this season.
An area the media are often highlighted as a potential weakness of Liverpool is their high line which might be breached with runners from deep in transitions. However, running in behind isn’t really a strength of this Brighton side, who have zero counter-attack goals this season and just 1.3 offsides per game.
Mohamed Salah (above) is the Premier League’s top scorer with 19 goals for Liverpool this season and is the 1.8/1 favourite to score against Brighton on Saturday to end his run of three games without a goal.
Brighton team news
Adam Webster remains ruled out for Brighton with a groin injury that has kept him out of the last three league games. He is likely to return after the March international break.
Jeremy Sarmiento is also a huge doubt. He hasn’t featured since the start of December due to a hamstring injury but should make a return to the squad in the coming games. Enock Mwepu is the player most likely to return to action here having missed the last eight games due to a hamstring injury.
Liverpool team news
The Reds will be happy to have come through yet another tough game without any new injury worries on Tuesday night against Inter. Although, Thiago took a kick high up on his knee and Fabinho on his ankle which may need to be assessed and see them rested here. Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita will likely come into the starting line up here regardless out of a need to rotate.
Ibrahima Konate and Roberto Firmino (above) were the only players to miss out against Inter due to injury. Konate was training alone after the West Ham match after taking a knock to his ribs. While Bobby only had his first training session this week after being out since scoring the winner against Inter in the first leg back in mid-February. Both are expected to be available again here but will likely be named on the bench.
