Liverpool lineup against Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday evening with Jürgen Klopp’s side looking to maintain their charge towards a record points total for a Premier League season. The Reds have won their last eight games against the Seasiders, winning the last five games with an aggregate score of 13-2. We believe that whilst Jürgen Klopp has said he doesn’t give out appearances like presents he will be more than willing to reward Curtis Jones for his goal scoring impact against Aston Villa.
Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker
The Brazilian had little to do against Villa but when called upon in the dying moments he produced an excellent save to deny Jack Grealish.
Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold
Trent wasn’t himself for large periods of the game against Aston Villa but he did provide a crucial defence splitting pass in the build up to Sadio Mane’s winner.
Centre back: Joe Gomez
The Englishman will need to distribute the ball quicker and more effectively than he did at Anfield on Sunday.
Centre back: Virgil van Dijk
Big Virg made an uncharacteristic error at the weekend, at least that means it’s another nine months until his next one.
Left back: Andy Robertson
Andy Robbo isn’t himself at the minute, we can’t still be blaming a hangover. Fingers crossed he returns to form at Brighton.
Defensive midfield: Fabinho
The best defensive midfielder in the world will be looking to recycle possession rapidly at the base of the midfield, we can’t afford to let play stagnate.
Centre midfield: Curtis Jones
The local lad came off the bench and scored at the weekend, putting the game to bed at Anfield. His impact should be rewarded by Jürgen Klopp.
Centre midfield: Gini Wijnaldum
With youth in the midfield we will need Gini to be at his tireless best looking after the youngster.
Right wing: Mo Salah
Mo bagged an assist at the weekend after a frustrating afternoon of running into blind alleys. He’ll be looking to get ahead in the Golden Boot running on Wednesday.
Left wing: Sadio Mane
Sadio came up with the goods when needed, we can expect him to continue his form against a Brighton side that are almost safe from relegation.
Striker: Roberto Firmino
Bobby didn’t score after coming off the bench on Sunday but he did make an impact, we’ll be looking to him for some more magic this week.
