Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool team travels to Brighton with a victory under their belt from midweek and hopes to extend their impressive Premier League start.

The VAR controversy will persist, but the players and management are entirely focused on the game of football.

A victory at Brighton would be a proper indication that Liverpool are ready to compete, just as the success over Union SG on Thursday helped soothe some of the pain from the Tottenham encounter.

If you exclude the outcome from last weekend, Liverpool has gone undefeated since April and has started to project more defensive self-assurance.


The game on Sunday promises to be exciting, and we’ve got all the essential information to get you ready for it.


Liverpool received both good and bad news regarding injuries.


After the international break, Cody Gakpo “has a good chance” to play and “is already out of his brace,” according to Klopp.


However, it appears like Stefan Bajcetic won’t play against Brighton; the manager is hoping he returns after the internationals. The same holds true for Thiago, whose return is further away.


In addition, Klopp provided an update on Conor Bradley’s health.


The child “is on the way back and is running,” the German stated, “but with these kind of injuries and at that age group, you tend to give them three weeks more than not enough.”

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you have probably heard about the aftermath from the officials’ poor performance against Tottenham last weekend.


Curtis Jones will therefore miss the following three domestic games. Despite the fact that Jones was dismissed by the referee after barely a freeze frame, Liverpool challenged the decision, however this was denied.


Diogo Jota will also be out from the game due to his two cautions in North London.


This is despite the fact that, according to ESPN, “the majority deemed the decision (second yellow) as incorrect as they felt it did not meet the threshold for a yellow card,” according to the Premier League’s Independent Key Match Incidents Panel.


Unfortunately, the suspension for one game cannot be lifted.

The manager made hints about his starting lineup against Union SG with his substitutions and post-game remarks.


At halftime on Thursday, Mo Salah, Darwin Nunez, and Wataru Endo were all removed, and Klopp later said, “All three subs were planned.”


This would imply that everyone will begin at Brighton. As previously indicated, Endo, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Alexis MacAllister are expected to make up the midfield due to Jones’ suspension.


Salah, Nunez, and Luis Diaz should make up the front three as a result of Gakpo’s injury and Jota’s suspension.


Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Endo, Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Salah, Nunez, and Diaz are the predicted starting lineup.
