Liverpool’s hunt for the Premier League title continues on Sunday afternoon with a Gameweek 30 clash against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will be even more determined to win the Premier League now that they have been knocked out of the FA Cup, ending hopes of a 2023/24 quadruple, so Brighton would be right to think they could be on the end of a reaction from the Reds here at Anfield.

With title rivals Arsenal and Manchester City also playing against each other this weekend, Liverpool cannot afford to drop any points at all. They can be top of the league by the end of Sunday if they play their cards right and Arsenal don’t win at the Etihad.

Here is 90min’s preview of Liverpool vs Brighton.

Liverpool have had injury concerns all season and the international break has not been helpful in that regard. Andy Robertson picked up a fresh problem whilst playing for Scotland and there is still a very faint chance he makes the squad, but a start seems unlikely.

Darwin Nunez did not travel for Uruguay’s fixtures because of an injury against Manchester United but he should start against Brighton. Curtis Jones is also back in training. Liverpool will be without Diogo Jota, Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago, Ben Doak, Joel Matip and Stefan Bajcetic.

Liverpool predicted lineup vs Brighton (4-3-3): Kelleher; Bradley, Van Dijk, Konate, Gomez; Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Gravenberch; Salah, Nunez, Diaz

Brighton managed to get through the international break without any fresh injury concerns, but they are expected to be without former Liverpool man James Milner and talented attacker Joao Pedro, which is a blow for Roberto De Zerbi.

They will be joining Solly March and Kaoru Mitoma on the sidelines for the trip to Anfield, where Evan Ferguson could play in a deeper role behind Danny Welbeck.

Brighton predicted lineup vs Liverpool (4-2-3-1): Verbruggen; Lamptey, Van Hecke, Dunk, Estupinan; Gilmour, Gross; Adingra, Ferguson, Enciso; Welbeck.

These two teams have served up some fascinating battles in recent seasons and there are almost always goals. Brighton are still firmly in the fight for European football, whilst Liverpool are chasing a Premier League title. The last five matches between Liverpool and Brighton have yielded 18 goals.

With two attack-minded coaches and lots on the line, this could be a thriller which goes the way of Liverpool, as their quality should eventually tell.
