Liverpool will face off against Brighton and Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium on Wednesday evening hoping to clinch another win on their travels. The Reds managed to bounce back versus Aston Villa last weekend as they secured a hard-fought 2-0 win at Anfield. However, the Seagulls could prove to be a sterner test for them as they have been playing well since the return of Premier League football last month.
Jurgen Klopp could once again set-up his team in a 4-3-3 formation and will be expected to revert to his strongest XI for this upcoming league encounter at the south coast of England.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Brighton
Alisson Becker will continue in goal for the Merseyside giants after securing a well-deserved clean sheet versus the Villans yesterday. Virgil Van Dijk will resume his partnership with Joe Gomez at the heart of the Liverpool defence as they look to keep Brighton’s Neal Maupay in check later this week.
Trent Alexander-Arnold put in a mediocre display versus Aston Villa, so this match could be another chance for him to shine and pick up a few assists from the right-back position. Andrew Robertson will look to do the same on the other side as the left-back.
Both Dejan Lovren and James Milner are significant concerns for this game and will be in a race against time to be fit for this league encounter.
Klopp might revert to his first-choice midfield for this game. We can expect to see Georginio Wijnaldum play along with Fabinho and Jordan Henderson at the centre of the park as they focus on distributing the ball accurately and creating some decent goal-scoring chances in the opposition half.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita will be available for selection on the Liverpool bench and might come on to make an impact if Klopp decides to call upon their services.
The Reds frontline will be comprised of the usual suspects as Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah try to link up with each other and cause a lot of headaches for the Brighton defenders on Wednesday.
Both Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino will have to settle for a place on the bench but could be introduced as the impact substitutes if the away side require a goal in the second half.
