Brighton & Hove Albion v Liverpool: match preview

Mohamed Salah is in magnificent form, scoring twice from the bench against Stoke, and if he keeps it up Liverpool will be confident they can comfortably beat Brighton

Events off the field overshadowed Brighton’s stalemate with Crystal Palace on Tuesday, their fourth consecutive draw at home. Only Manchester City have left the Amex Stadium with three points this season. Jürgen Klopp made six changes for the win at Stoke on Wednesday and is likely to shuffle his pack again. After starting the past two games Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is finding his feet at Anfield. Tim Knowles
