Liverpool vs Brighton Predictions

Liverpool vs Brighton Predictions

Liverpool to win and both teams to score at 15/8

Liverpool to win 2/1 at 8/1

Mohamed Salah to score anytime at 11/10

  • Liverpool have three wins and one draw from their four games across all competitions at Anfield.
  • Brighton lost 2-1 at Fulham in their last away game.
  • Liverpool have just one clean sheet at home this season, while Brighton have only failed to score in one of their fixtures.
  • Mohamed Salah has three goals in his last two games for club and country.

Tricky start for new Albion boss

Roberto De Zerbi faces a baptism of fire in his first game as Brighton manager as they face a trip to Liverpool on Saturday.

The Italian enjoyed great success at Sassuolo in his homeland before moving on to Shakhtar Donetsk, but his time in the Ukraine was cut short following Russia’s invasion of the country.

It remains to be seen how he will fare at the Amex Stadium but he probably won’t make too many changes to his side for the next few weeks at least, and the Albion squad will of course be keen to impress their new manager.

Liverpool looking to build on Ajax win

Liverpool have endured a difficult start to the new season but they did win their last outing just over two weeks ago as they claimed a much-needed 2-1 win over Ajax in the Champions League.

A break may well have helped Liverpool regroup, but there are still some big questions over their leaky backline. As such, they may struggle to contain a Brighton outfit who will be looking to hit the ground running under their new boss and will feel they have a point to prove after the departure of his predecessor, Graham Potter.

Brighton have only lost once this season but Liverpool’s troubles have largely come on the road and at Anfield they have three wins and one draw from their four games across all competitions. I am predicting a second defeat of the campaign for the Seagulls, but we should still see a competitive affair and a Liverpool win with both teams to score looks a good option.

The Reds have only managed one clean sheet on home soil, against Bournemouth, while Brighton have only failed to score once – in a 0-0 draw with Newcastle.

Salah still the dangerman

Mohamed Salah has had a quiet start to the campaign for Liverpool but has still managed four goals in nine games in total and at odds against appeals as an anytime goalscorer after hitting three goals across his last two games for club and country.

Brighton have the best defensive record in the league with just five goals conceded so it is hard to see Liverpool running away with this one, and a hard-fought 2-1 win for the hosts has a chance in the correct score market.
