Former Liverpool players Adam Lallana, Deniz Undav and were also on target for the steadfast Seagulls, who quickly rallied from Chuba Akpom’s equalizer in early exchanges to set up a fourth round match with, coincidentally, Liverpool or the wolves.

Ahead of their successful trip to Middlesbrough, Roberto De Zerbi’s men silenced Goodison Park and then some with a glittering Premier League win last Tuesday, keeping them within reach of the continental positions as a result of them finishing eighth in the table. Tottenham Hotspur – who have played a game more – still have an unassailable six-point lead over Brighton in fifth place, but a Seagulls win on their own turf would be enough to put them in the top seven against Liverpool, given the positives Results persist outweigh the negatives in life after Graham Potter.

For all their scoring chances, both teams have scored in each of Brighton’s last seven Premier League games and their only top-flight win at the Amex since October was Chelsea’s 4-1 demolition, but Liverpool aren’t exactly the force to be reckoned with that does they were once.

While calls to sign a new midfielder are growing louder from Anfield faithful – who could seize the opportunity to get a closer look at Brighton’s Moises Caicedo this weekend – Klopp’s men have thanked their lucky stars or lack of camera angles for The FA- Cup defense stays alive.

Before the final whistle in the four-goal tie against Wolves, Toti had scored what appeared to be a good winner for the visitors before that was ruled out, with Matheus Nunes being awarded the offside offense when he got the ball back to his feet off a corner.

With no concrete evidence to overturn the decision on the field, Klopp and an irate Julen Lopetegui shook hands in a tie, but there was arguably no man more grateful on the field than Alisson Becker, not covering himself in glory for either could the strikes of wolves. Sixth-placed Liverpool, who are returning to the top flight, can’t get hold of Tottenham no matter what this weekend and they are only ahead of Fulham – who have played one game more – on goal difference before the Cottagers only meet on Thursday night, taking on rivals Chelsea from west London.

Following a similar pattern to the hosts, Liverpool have scored and conceded in each of their last six games in all tournaments, but they have only managed two top-flight wins all season – just the 12th-best record of its kind .

Leandro Trossard grabbed the headlines for all the right reasons when Brighton’s hat-trick eluded them to a 3-3 draw at Anfield earlier this season, but Liverpool have not lost in their 10 previous visits to the south coast, including a 2-0 success. the amex in march.

Form of Brighton & Hove Albion Premier League:

Brighton came out of the FA Cup game against Middlesbrough with no further injury concerns, although Anfield hat-trick hero Trossard missed that game with a calf problem and will need to be assessed ahead of this game.

Jakub Moder is the hosts’ only guaranteed absentee in this fixture as the Polish midfielder is looking to return next month after suffering a knee injury and De Zerbi was able to give Adam Webster a few minutes in the FA Cup, where Lewis is came. on as a dunk dunk was rested. An expected return from Mac Allister in the final third means Lallana may have to accept a place on the bench against his former club, while rising star Evan Ferguson should enjoy another start.

At Anfield, long-time Liverpool absentees Diogo Jota, Arthur, Luis Diaz and Virgil van Dijk all remain out of action, but James Milner and Roberto Firmino should be fit enough to compete for a place in the squad.

Klopp has named what is arguably his strongest XI for the cup game against Wolves and there will be no breaks for the vast majority of those players, including Dutch debutant Cody Gakpo.

The 23-year-old, who admitted to having ‘good and sloppy’ moments in his first appearance, was due to make his Premier League debut here from the first whistle, while Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate will play together in the absence of Van Dijk.

Possible starting lineup for Brighton & Hove Albion:
Sanchez; Lamptey, Dunk, Webster, Estupinan; Caicedo, crude; Mars, MacAllister, Mitoma; Ferguson

Possible starting lineup for Liverpool:
Alison; Alexandre-Arnold, Matip, Konate, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Nunez, Gakpo

We say Brighton & Hove Albion 2-2 Liverpool

Both Brighton and Liverpool have shown a penchant for scoring and conceding in recent weeks, which should make for an intriguing battle between two Continental hopefuls. The reformation of the Dunk-Webster partnership may even have seen the Seagulls as favorites for this game by some, but Liverpool’s forays into the Amex often end with visitors picking up at least a point, and we’re confident in The Zerbi’s fertile the most likely results, scorelines and more for this match.
