Liverpool will travel to the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon to take on Brighton & Hove Albion.

Brighton held Liverpool to a 3-3 draw in the corresponding fixture in the first half of the season. It was incidentally Roberto De Zerbi’s first game in charge of the Seagulls. Brighton are slowly starting to look menacing yet again and this is reflected in their 5-1 thumping of Middlesbrough in their latest outing in the third round of the FA Cup.

Argentinian World Cup hero Alexis Mac Allister bagged a brace while Pascal Groß, Adam Lallana and Deniz Undav got on the scoresheet for Brighton. De Zerbi’s side thrashed Everton in their latest Premier League encounter against Everton.

The 4-1 win at Goodison Park helped Brighton remain within touching distance of the European berths. Their opponents Liverpool are sixth in the table, with 28 points from 17 games. The Seagulls have 27 from 17 and are currently eighth. If Brighton can eke out a win on Saturday, they will leapfrog Liverpool on the league table.

Jurgen Klopp’s men played out a 2-2 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the third Round of the FA Cup to set up a replay. Julen Lopetegui’s side seemed to have clinched a winner in the final 10 minutes of the game but it was chalked off as Matheus Nunes was ruled offside in the build-up.

Liverpool suffered a 3-1 humbling at the hands of Brentford in the Premier League last weekend. It hasn’t been easy going for Klopp’s side this term. They cannot go past Spurs with a win on Saturday but they will be desperate for a victory as a loss could see them tumbling further down the table.
