Liverpool will play hosts to Brighton & Hove Albion in their final league match of the season. The Reds need a point to guarantee their place in the UEFA Champions League next season. Jurgen Klopp is expected to name a strong team for this encounter and might opt to stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation. However, they will take on a Chris Hughton side who can be defensively resolute on their day.
The recent history of this fixture makes a grim reading for the away team as they have lost each of their last four meetings with the Merseyside outfit. Klopp has no fresh injury concerns to deal with. However, the German will be without the services of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Emre Can for this upcoming league match. Hence, every Liverpool supporter will be hoping that none of their players gets an injury, especially with the Champions League final against Real Madrid looming on the horizon.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Brighton & Hove Albion
Loris Karius is likely to start in goal for the Klopp’s side while Simon Mignolet once again settles for a place on the bench. The former FSV Mainz goalkeeper might be shielded by a backline of Dejan Lovren and Virgil Van Dijk in central defence while Andrew Robertson plays as the left-back and Trent Alexander-Arnold is deployed on the right-hand side of the back four.
Both Alberto Moreno and Joe Gomez might be available for a place on the bench. Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that his defenders can be solid at the back versus the Seagulls on Sunday so that they have a good chance of securing a result at Anfield which will be enough for them to clinch a top 4 place this season.
The trio of James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum and captain, Jordan Henderson could be unleashed at the centre of the park and the performance of these players will be integral if the home team are to break down the Brighton defence this weekend.
Ben Woodburn may make it on the bench for this encounter against Chris Hughton’s team.
The front three would consist of the Brazilian ace, Roberto Firmino spearheading the Reds attack while Sadio Mane looks to use his pace and guile down the left wing. Mohamed Salah will start on the right side of the Liverpool attack and will hope to register his name on the scoresheet. Both Danny Ings and Dominic Solanke could come off the bench to feature in this contest if required.
