Liverpool to win

Brighton and Liverpool go into the weekend in sixth and fourth places respectively and both will be looking to bounce back from frustrating defeats on the road last weekend.

Liverpool were controversially denied a goal in last Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Spurs, while Brighton were on the receiving end of a 6-1 thrashing from Aston Villa.

Both sides have also had European football to contend with, but Liverpool have the deeper squad needed to cope with the demands of the Europa League, being able to rest key players in the 2-0 win over Union Berlin.

Liverpool were beaten 3-0 at the Amex last season, a performance described by their manager as “awful”. But that is their only defeat in six Premier League visits to Brighton – with four wins and a draw in the other five fixtures.

I can see Brighton being sluggish at the weekend, after coming back from 2-0 down away from home against Marseille in midweek. So, I’m backing the Reds to win here.

Both teams to score

All three meetings between the sides in 2022/23 saw at least three goals and both teams scored in two of them.

The same has been true for every league match Brighton have played so far this season, with Liverpool joint-second in the league for this stat having seen it land on five occasions.

Brighton haven’t kept a clean sheet so far in the league this season, and Liverpool have only kept one, so I can goals at both ends of the pitch this weekend.

Luis Diaz to score anytime

With Diogo Jota missing through suspension and Cody Gakpo likely to be sidelined because of a knee injury, the attacking burden looks set to fall on Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah.

The Colombian was the player controversially denied by the VAR last Saturday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and he already has three goals to his name this season across all competitions.

The 26-year-old scored the first in a 2-0 win over the Seagulls at the Amex in March 2022 and I fancy him to find the back of the net this Sunday.
