Liverpool vs Brighton
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 30 November 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).
Liverpool will be keen to return to winning ways when they welcome Brighton to Anfield in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
Jurgen Klopp’s men were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw at home to Napoli in the Champions League in midweek, missing their opportunity to claim a place in the knockout stages.
Liverpool Vs Brighton Match Preview
Liverpool will be looking to extend their winning run in the Premier League to five games when they host Brighton at their Anfield on Saturday afternoon. The Reds are determined to put an end to Man City’s dominance in the Premier League, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Brighton. Considering that Egypt superstar Mohamed Salah is likely to recover in time to face the Seagulls, we believe that home win should be considered. Over the years Liverpool have turned their Anfield into a real fortress, and they are likely to retain their eight-point advantage over Man City. Brighton, who failed to impress in back-to-back losses to the likes of Man Utd and Leicester City, are unlikely to spoil Liverpool’s party at Anfield. In their last meeting in the English top flight the Reds defeated the Seagulls 1-0.
Lewis Dunk is back from suspension and goes straight right back into Graham Potter’s side with Shane Duffy dropping out. Aaron Connolly returns from injury and reunites with Neal Maupay at the tip of Brighton’s attack.
Confirmed XI: Ryan; Montoya, Webster, Dunk, Burn; Gross, Pröpper, Stephens, Bissouma; Maupay, Connolly.
Fabinho was always set to miss this weekend’s game, even before sustaining an injury against Napoli. The 26-year-old Brazilian midfielder picked up his fifth Premier League yellow card last time out as Liverpool ran out 2-1 winners at Crystal Palace.
Adam Lallana is in contention to fill in but Klopp has brought in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain pushing Jordan Henderson a little deeper with Georginio Wijnaldum retaining his spot. Naby Keita, another option in midfield, has recovered from illness to sit on the bench.
Confirmed XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane.
