Brighton v Liverpool Preview
Brighton is a club on the up, last season they had a phenomenal season shocking plenty with not only their performances but their consistency.
They would finish the season in a more than respectable sixth place finish, alongside a Semi-Final FA Cup finish. They were always going to be a club to watch this season.
Following their performances, they were expected to be gutted in the off-season for some of their prized assets and gutted they were Alexis Mac Allister signed for Liverpool on an undisclosed fee, Moisés Caicedo has gone to Chelsea for £100,000,000 and keeper Robert Sanchez also to Chelsea for £25,000,000.
But they have plenty of assets still at the club and they’ve continued with their excellent recruitment bringing in the likes of Joaoa Pedro from Watford, Mahmoud Dahoud from Dortmund and Milner from Liverpool.
Pre-Season wasn’t great for the club with two defeats (Chelsea and Newcastle), one draw (Rayo Vallecano) and one win against Brentford. However, they started the season flying with four wins from their opening five matches including victories 3-1 against Newcastle and 1-3 against Manchester United.
However, their form has slowed in recent weeks, with one victory in their last five matches in all competitions, which came 3-1 against Bournemouth. Last weekend’s 6-1 win against Aston Villa has their credentials being questioned for the first time in a while.
Liverpool had a disappointing season last year having entered the season as EFL Cup and FA Cup champions, they would end the season trophyless and finishing arguably an even more disappointing fifth-place in the Premier League.
There’s been a lot of change at the club during the off-season with departures with the strong bulk of the midfield, Milner, Keita, Chamberlain, Henderson and Fabinho and striker Firminho all leaving the club.
They have made some decent acquisitions in Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai which will freshen up the squad, but what remains to be seen is whether enough bodies have gone through the door at Anfield to replace the considerable amount of experience lost.
Pre-Season was interesting for the club with three wins, one defeat and one draw in their five official matches.
The freshened-up Liverpool squad had a near faultless start in their opening five league games drawing 1-1 against Chelsea in their opening league game of the season before winning their next four league games including 1-2 against Newcastle and 3-0 against Aston Villa.
They won their preceding three games in all competitions before their controversial 2-1 defeat against Tottenham last weekend, where VAR took centre stage They did return to winning ways in the Europa League this Thursday with a 2-0 win over Union-Saint Gilloise who we did a post on here.

Brighton v Liverpool Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Brighton 1-3 Liverpool
Both sides are coming into this trying to put disappointing results from last weekend behind them. Although Liverpool generally played well and could be considered unlucky. Brighton on the other hand were picked apart.
I can see both sides scoring, but I think this Liverpool team should be far too good for Brighton on this occasion.
