After chalking up consecutive 3-1 wins, things are looking a little rosier for defending Premier League champions Liverpool after a barren spell in January.
The visiting Seagulls also have cause for optimism, after their 1-0 win over Spurs at the weekend stretched their current unbeaten run to four matches, including three wins across all competitions.
🔮 Team news
Jürgen Klopp is expected to persist with the midfield diamond that served him so well in wins over Tottenham and West Ham, but Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are both pushing for starts at the expense of James Milner and Xherdan Shaqiri respectively. New defensive signings Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak should be named among the substitutes.
Today, I would like to thank those who have been by my side and given me their endless support; as I signed for one of the biggest clubs in the world, Liverpool FC. As always, I will do my best to make you proud and to be worthy of your efforts & kindness.@LFC pic.twitter.com/3k0po1w1ZK— Ozan KABAK (@ozankabak4) February 2, 2021
🧮 Likely Liverpool XI (41212):
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Henderson, Robertson; Thiago; Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Jones; Salah, Firmino
Seagulls boss Graham Potter is unlikely to tinker with his team that beat Tottenham in a more convincing fashion that the 1-0 scoreline would suggest.
Ex-Liverpool man Adam Lallana will be desperate to impress against his old club but he'll need to displace Alexis Mac Allister in the lineup if he is to start.
🧮 Likely Brighton XI
Sánchez; White, Dunk, Webster; Veltman, Bissouma, Groß, March; Trossard, Lallana; Maupay
