Brighton vs Liverpool

We now travel to the seaside to Brighton to take on them and Hove. Their nickname is the seagulls and their mascot is surprise, surprise, a seagull called Kevin (De Bruyne) and you really don't want him flying overhead and pooping on your shoulder. Brighton's local derby is with Crystal Palace who are 40 miles away. I bet that is an intense rivalry with neighbours and families divided.

This will be a tough match especially with Fabinho as CB but, like every match from now to the end of the season, it is one we really need to win and despite the injuries this is one we really should win. I expect the team to be Alisson, TAA, Fab ,VVD, Robbo. Milner, Gini, Shaq, Salah, Firmino and Mane which is not too shabby though the options from the bench will be limited.

I am predicting a 1-3 win for us. As they are at home and they will see a weakness at CB I think they will try to take us on a bit more than they did at Anfield. I think they will score but that they will be found wanting in defence and we will catch them on the counter attack.
