Predicted Liverpool line-up v Brighton

Liverpool are looking to make it three successive Premier League wins for the first time since September when they take on Brighton tomorrow evening.

It won’t be easy with Brighton claiming impressive results against Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks.

The Seagulls haven’t conceded in their previous three league matches, too.

Jurgen Klopp and Graham Potter enjoyed a share of the spoils last time out, courtesy of a controversial injury-time penalty that was converted by Pascal Gross to cancel out Diogo Jota’s opener.

How will Liverpool approach their latest challenge?

In their previous game Liverpool lined up a similar system to the one that exploited Spurs in the second-half of the 3-1 victory last week.

Jurgen Klopp could go for a similar approach here.

Liverpool are playing a third game in seven days meaning Klopp could be tempted to make one or two alterations in a number of key areas.

Despite the deadline day additions of Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak, it is unlikely either centre-back will play given it will have been less that 48 hours since their announced signings.

With that said, Klopp could name an unchanged defensive quartet following the impressive win against West Ham on Sunday. Both Jordan Henderson and Nat Phillips were very outstanding together and their partnership could be reinstated tomorrow evening.

In midfield

The one change we expect to see in midfield is for Curtis Jones to come in for James Milner.

Milner, 35, started has started back-to-back matches against Spurs and West Ham. And as a result, Klopp may not to overwork his vice-captain.

Both Milner and Klopp exchanged an amusing moment together after the Liverpool boss substituted the former Leeds United man for Jones at the weekend.

Milner initially looked bemused at Klopp’s decision but the pair were laughing together moments later when Jones assisted Mohamed Salah for Liverpool’s opening goal of the game.


Roberto Firmino started from the bench in East London while Sadio Mane was absent altogether on Sunday.

Klopp indicated that the latter’s unavailability wasn’t a serious issue meaning he could come back into the fold against Brighton. Firmino, too, is expected to start.

In: Firmino, Mane, Jones / Out: Origi, Shaqiri, Milner.
