Are Liverpool really title contenders?

Their early season from would suggest to.

Goals from Salah, Sturridge and 2 for Mané saw them breeze past a terrible West Ham side on the opening day a fortnight ago.

They were expecting a much tougher game as they headed for Selhurst Park on Monday night.

Goals right at the end of each half from Milner and then Mané wrapped up a hard fort 2-0 victory.

If they’re going to keep up with Manchester City they’re going to have to keep on winning and these are the games they can not afford to slip up in.

Brighton: A tale of two matches

As for Brighton, their two performances could hardly have been any different.

They were really poor in their 2-0 defeat to Watford on the opening day, raising relegation worries.

In their first home game they welcomed Manchester United.

Chris Hughton was hoping for a positive response and that’s exactly what he got.

Early goals from Glenn Murray and Shane Duffy saw them race into a two goal lead after just 20 minutes.

When the visitors pulled one back 10 minutes before half time, it looked like a comeback for Mourinho’s men was on.

However, in first half stoppage time Pascal Groß convered a penalty to give them breathing space.

Pogba did score a penalty of his own in the 96th minute but Brighton held on for another famous win over The Red Devils.

They only won two away games last season and the last of those came back in November so it would be extraordinary if they claimed the 3 points at Anfield.

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it for Jürgen Klopp.

He’s named the same staring XI in both Premier League games so far and after 2 impressive wins the same side is expected to start against the Seagulls.

Fabinho was not on the bench on Monday night but is expected to be back and available for selection.

Loris Karius on the other hand won’t be, he is reportedly finalising a move to Turkish Süper Lig side Beşiktaş.

Naby Keïta has impressed everyone in his two Liverpool appearances thus far and his energy could be key to breaking down a stubborn Seagulls rearguard.

Salah, Mané and Firmino scored 91 goals between them last season. They’ve already got 4 so far this campaign and you wouldn’t back against them adding to that here.

Chris Hughton

For Brighton, Chris Hughton has, in the main, been loyal to the players that did so well last season.

Gaëtan Bong came in for new signing Bernardo at left back last Sunday and will keep his place.

The midfield 3 of Pröpper, Groß and Stepehens, who did so well against Manchester United, are going to have to do something similar if they’re to leave Anfield with anything.

Leon Balogun came on for his debut in that game when Lewis Dunk went off injured. He is not expected to be fit in time so the Nigerian international is set to make his first start in the Premier League.

Other new signings Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Yves Bissouma and Florin Andone will have to wait for their chance form the bench.
