Disclaimer: This series is examining the games days prior to matchday, there is always the possibility for injuries, coach selections, etc. They may be updated to reflect most accurate starting lineup.
Liverpool vs. Brighton
Location: Anfield, Liverpool
Predictions have Liverpool absolutely decimating this Brighton side, by as many as 6 goals.
This Liverpool side has shown everyone just how dangerous they can be, and although I anticipate Brighton to try to set up shop — I just see the Reds marching right through. The craftiness of this side with Mane, Salah, and Milner is just going to be way too much for this Brighton side.
Brighton comes into this match off a huge win over Manchester United that is likely to give them a rollercoaster of emotions unlike anything they’ve experienced. I think ultimately, that will play out to their detriment, I imagine they’ll come in looking to repeat their upset and get a little carried away on the attacking side giving Liverpool the ability to perform devastating counterattacking football.
