Liverpool: It’s a dangerous time for the Reds. With the four-point lead atop the table, the last thing they’ll want is to let City get any closer the rest of the way. Pressure is on, but Liverpool has done well to beat the smaller teams in the league. This game shouldn’t cause the Reds many problems, but you just never know with the magic of the Premier League. Expect a full-strength squad that will play with some serious urgency against a Brighton team that hasn’t lost in its last four games.

Brighton: Three straight losses in early December put the southerners in a tough spot, but since then the club has taken five out of nine points including a draw against Arsenal. Brighton is in good shape when it comes to staying up, currently sitting in 13th place with 26 points. But just 10 points above the drop zone, Brighton will likely need three more wins or so to guarantee safety. A draw here will feel like a victory.

It’s hard to see this Liverpool team going three games without a win. Brighton battles early on, but by the hour mark this one is over as the Reds put four past the hosts.

Liverpool remain without Joe Gomes and Joel Matip due to a fractured leg and a broken collarbone respectively, although the latter could play against Crystal Palace next week.

Dejan Lovren is out with a hamstring problem, while Rhian Brewster and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are on the injury list long term.

Jordan Henderson is expected to be fit after he missed Monday’s game with Wolves due to a minor complaint.

Possible Liverpool starting XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Van Djik, Robertson; Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Liverpool are hot 3/10 favourites to come away with the win, according to bet365. Brighton are priced at 10/1 and a draw is 5/1.
