So, is now the right time to back against the Champions Liverpool?
The injuries seem to be piling up for Jurgen Kopp’s side, with Trent Alexander Arnold now added to a defensive injury list which includes Virgil Van Dijk & Joe Gomez.
It remains to be seen whether Mohammed Salah is fit to return after his Covid scare.
Brighton v Liverpool Tips
A flat Champions League defeat against Atalanta will have added to Liverpool’s woes and may have pushed their price out a notch coming into this one.

Brighton finally managed their first win in the last seven against Aston Villa last week, and to be fair Graeme Potter’s Seagull’s have been playing some decent football in recent weeks.
If we dig a little deeper into the stats its only one defeat in their last five in the Premier League for the home side and many punters may having a small punt on The Seagulls at the hefty price of 9/2 to shock the Reds.
That price does not appeal to me however, and I’m still looking to get Liverpool onside for this one.
The Reds easily brushed aside a decent looking Leicester City side 3-0 last time out and its clearly apparent that Klopp’s side can adapt to squad rotation.
The straight up Liverpool win looks a little short at a miserly 4/7 but I’m willing to add a goals market into this one to boost our price.
Remarkably, Brighton have managed to find the net in six of their last seven in the Premier League and with a few defensive injuries in key positions for Liverpool I’m backing the home side to at least get on the score sheet.
Whether that will be enough to beat Liverpool is another matter – Klopp’s side should simply outscore them in this one but it’ll give us a much better price.
With that in mind its worth taking a look at the match result and both teams to score market.
The Liverpool win and both teams to score is available at around 2/1 and thats a price that offers some appeal for punters unwilling to back Liverpool at a little prohibitive looking 4/7.
Lets not forget that Liverpool score in every Premier League game, and they can do that again today.
Brighton should find the net and make things a little more difficult – but Liverpool should once again prevail.
