Liverpool will entertain Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield on Saturday afternoon as they look to earn all three points at home. The Reds managed to secure a hard-fought 2-1 win over Ajax before the international break which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this league game this weekend.

Jurgen Klopp will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make one change to his starting XI for this game. Roberto Firmino might play from the start in this game while Luis Diaz gets a rest on the bench.

4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Brighton And Hove Albion

Defence

Alisson Becker will operate in goal for the Reds after shipping in one goal versus Ajax in his last outing. Joel Matip will resume his centre-back partnership with Virgil Van Dijk at the back as they try to keep the Brighton attackers frustrated during the 90 minutes.

Trent Alexander-Arnold will function at right-back while Kostas Tsimikas will look to impress on the other side as the left-back. Both full-backs need to be at their best if they are to create enough chances for Liverpool to win this game.

Andrew Robertson is unlikely to recover in time for this game but we can expect James Milner to offer cover for the full-back positions on the bench.

Midfield

Klopp will probably name a midfield comprised of Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho and Harvey Elliott as they focus on establishing their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park.

Thiago will be responsible for setting the tempo of the game in midfield while Harvey Elliott looks to make a few late runs towards the opponent’s penalty box.

Jordan Henderson will be available for selection on the bench as he waits for his chance to make an impact in the second half if Klopp decides to call upon his services.

Attack

Diogo Jota will try to give a good account of himself on the left flank while Mohamed Salah hopes to weave his magic from the right flank.

Roberto Firmino could get a chance to spearhead Liverpool’s attack down the middle. The Brazilian striker will have to find ways to cause a few problems for the Brighton defenders this Saturday afternoon.

Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if the Reds are in need of a goal by then.
