Liverpool vs Brighton
Venue: Anfield Stadium
Kick off: 5:30PM
Jurgen Klopp could name the same starting XI for third game in a row as Liverpool welcome Brighton in the Premier League this afternoon.
The German manager named the same XI in the opening two wins against West Ham and Crystal Palace, and with no new injuries to speak of, could do so again today.
He was coy when asked about the possibility, though, saying: “We will see. That must always be an option and we’ve had enough sessions.
“I don’t think it makes sense to only stick to a team because we won, [although] that’s the most important thing. We have quality in the squad and there can be different reasons to change the line-up, so that’s possible of course.”
Brighton were 3-2 winners against Manchester United last weekend, and manager Chris Hughton is hoping his side can go to Anfield with confidence after the victory.
“An away game at Liverpool, it doesn’t come much tougher than that. We certainly need to show a lot of the qualities that we showed in last week’s performance,” he said.
“Hopefully we’ll go there with a little more confidence and less pressure. There isn’t anybody that would expect us to win, but we’ve got to approach the game in a manner that will allow us to get something.”
Liverpool possible XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Gomez, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Milner, Keita, Salah, Mane, Firmino.
Brighton possible XI: Ryan, Montoya, Duffy, Balogun, Bong, Stephens, Propper, Knockaert, March, Gross, Murray.
