PREVIEW: Liverpool V Brighton & Hove Albion

Liverpool welcome Brighton to Anfield on Saturday afternoon as the Reds look to continue their winning start in the Premier League. Crystal Palace created a bit of a test for Jurgen Klopp's side on Monday night but back at Anfield many are hoping the Reds might be able to make the most of their effective attack.

Injuries for Liverpool mean they are still unable to call upon Dejan Lovren. For Brighton, they are potentially going to be without Lewis Dunk who picked up an injury in Brighton's win over Manchester United. 

The last time the two sides met was in May this year. Liverpool put four past Brighton at Anfield with goals from Salah, Lovren, Solanke and Robertson. The Reds also put several goals in the Brighton net during their last trip to the Amex. In December 2017 the game ended 5-1, Firmino scored a brace that day.

It's very early days but Liverpool fans all over are already daring to think about the title. Even the neutrals are starting to say that the Reds are the only side realistically that might be able to stay the pace with the immense Manchester City.

If Liverpool are going to do just that then they need to keep their momentum. Brighton have proved they are no mugs not only last season but also last week after brushing aside Manchester United. United look a shadow of their former selves but still, it's a tough task to beat a Mourinho team and Brighton will surely be on a high coming to Anfield.

I would love to see Naby Keita score on Saturday, he's looked extremely lively in the first couple of matches and his efforts will hopefully at some stage be rewarded with his name on the scoresheet.

Salah assisted against Palace but people will start shouting goal drought if he doesn't find a second soon haha!

Stat Sandwich

  • Liverpool have conceded on just one occasion in their last five league games.
  • Brighton have been to Anfield on nine occasions in the league winning just once in 1982.
  • Roberto Firmino has scored once in his last nine appearances in the league.

Enjoy the match folks, wherever you are watching!
