Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has to currently contend with reduced team options. Arthur Melo (Surgery), Virgil van Dijk (Hamstring Injury), Luis Díaz (Knee Injury) and Diogo Jota (Calf Injury) miss out here.
We’ve got the feeling that Liverpool and Brighton & Hove Albion should both be able to score more than once here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.
