Brighton vs Liverpool Betting Tips

  • Liverpool and both teams to score (Yes) – 2/1
  • Darwin Nunez to score anytime – 11/8

Team news

Pervis Estupinan has joined Julio Enciso and Jakub Moder on Brighton’s injury list, with the full-back set to be out for the next month. Former Liverpool men James Milner and Adam Lallana are set to miss out on a reunion with their former employers as both are dealing with their own physical issues.

Liverpool duo Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota are out of contention due to suspension, while Cody Gakpo, Thiago Alcantara, Stefan Bajcetic and Caoimhin Kelleher are all in the treatment room.

Liverpool and both teams to score (Yes) @ 2/1

Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi will look to ensure what happened at Villa Park last weekend doesn’t happen again to his side when Liverpool pay them a visit on Sunday.

The Seagulls fought back from two goals down to draw at Marseille in the Europa League on Thursday which would have seen the players regain some confidence, but it won’t be as high as it had been before the 6-1 thrashing.

Liverpool will try to use that result to their advantage when they turn up at the Amex Stadium, and they themselves will be fired up after their controversial defeat at Tottenham Hotspur last Saturday.

The Reds missed out on crucial points in this year’s title race and Jurgen Klopp will have it drilled into his players that they will certainly need to make up the deficit this weekend.

With Brighton’s defence not as solid as we have come to have known in recent years, Liverpool’s frightening attack can inflict more misery on the Seagulls.

Darwin Nunez to score anytime @ 11/8

With Gakpo out injured, Darwin Nunez looks certain to come back into the front three to accompany Mohamed Salah and most likely Luis Diaz. The Uruguayan has looked more settled into his surroundings at Liverpool this term and we are seeing a significant improvement in his performances.

Nunez has scored three goals in the Premier League in six appearances, and he has also netted one in the Europa League. With his side needing three points this weekend to keep up momentum in the title race, he will be relishing a return to the lineup, especially against a side that has conceded eight goals in their last two matches.
