Approaching this fixture, Liverpool are in incredible form with an unbeaten run of eight matches in all competitions, despite the huge number of important injuries to the side. In the last fixture, the Reds defeated Leicester City by a scoreline of 3-0 to go 64 Premier League games unbeaten at Anfield. As of now, Jurgen Klopp’s side are tied in first place in the table on 20 points with Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur, and a win here could potentially place them in first, with fellow title contenders, Spurs and Chelsea, meeting on Sunday.
Brighton & Hove Albion come into this fixture in wavering form, with one win and three draws in their last five matches, although they defeated Aston Villa away in their last fixture. So far, the Seagulls have won twice and suffered defeat four times in the league, which has placed them in 16th, five points off relegation.
Klopp’s men are, of course, the firm favourites in this clash with odds of 3/5 for a Liverpool win. However, with the Reds' weakened defence and hectic schedule, the champions may not be as prepared as their opponents for this fixture. Therefore, odds for Liverpool to win and BTTS is priced at 2/1.
