Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

Last year’s Golden Glove winner is still without a clean sheet in the league. Saturday should change that.

Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold

The Reds sorely missed Trent during the draw with Napoli, his creativity is crucial to our offensive play.

Centre back: Virgil van Dijk

Virgil will be looking to banish the Dries demons after Mertens injured him in the build up to the Napoli goal in midweek.

Centre back: Dejan Lovren

High off the back of a crucial goal against Napoli, we will need the Croatian to be equally as commanding on Saturday.

Left back: Andy Robertson

Robbo will see a lot of the ball on Saturday, fingers crossed he uses it well.

Defensive midfield: Jordan Henderson

 

With Fabinho both suspended and injured, the captain will drop into a deeper role.

Centre midfield: Gini Wijnaldum

Gini was called upon early against Napoli but we predict him to start in the Liverpool lineup against Brighton.

Centre midfield: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The Ox changed the tempo of the game when he came on in midweek.

Right wing: Mo Salah

Wednesday was one of Mo’s weaker games, he will have a point to prove on Saturday.

Striker: Bobby Firmino

Bobby came close against Napoli and his smart linkup play deserved a goal. He will be fired up for Brighton.

Left wing: Sadio Mane

Garth Crooks’ favourite for PFA Player of the Year, he will need to prove his credentials on Saturday.
