Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Liverpool: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool can return to the top of the Premier League if they avoid defeat away to an inconsistent Brighton side in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.

Brighton earned an impressive 2-1 win away at Aston Villa last weekend, with Solly March scoring the winner.

Danny Welbeck opened his Brighton account with the opening goal in the win, a lovely dinked finished over Emiliano Martinez.

Liverpool eased past Leicester City last time out, winning 3-0 at Anfield, with Diogo Jota scoring a fourth goal in as many Anfield league matches.

They were surprisingly beaten in the Champions League though, suffering a 2-0 home loss to Atalanta on Wednesday evening.

Team news
Tariq Lamptey was sent off late on against Villa meaning he will miss out here. Joel Veltman will probably deputise.

Adam Lallana was forced off last weekend and is a doubt for the visit of his former employers.

Salah missed their last Premier League fixture having tested positive for Covid-19, however was back for the Champions League.

Salah is likely to start here ahead of the injured Naby Keita in what will probably be the only alteration from the Leicester win.

Expected starting XI’s
Brighton (3-5-2): Ryan; Dunk, White, Webster; Veltman, Bissouma, Gross, Lallana, March; Maupay, Welbeck
Liverpool (4-2-3-1): Alisson; Milner, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson; Jones, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane; Jota
