Liverpool will be determined to bounce back to winning ways this weekend when they travel to Brighton and Hove Albion.
The Reds have been in stuttering form of late and head into this fixture on the back of two consecutive losses.
Jurgen Klopp saw his side defeated for the first time in the Premier League this season last Thursday as Manchester City beat the Reds 2-1. This came before Liverpool were condemned to an early exit from the FA Cup at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Nevertheless, the Merseyside club do still have a four-point advantage at the top of the table and will be keen to extend that when they take on Brighton.
It is likely that the Reds will be forced to contend with some fitness problems but Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip have both returned to full training with the first-team squad ahead of the match.
So, without further ado, take a look at how we’re expecting Liverpool to line up at the Amex Stadium!
Alisson was rested against Wolves but he’ll undoubtedly return to the starting line-up.
Alexander-Arnold is likely to play in his favoured position at right-back.
Matip’s fitness will be touch and go until kick-off, but Klopp is likely to be desperate for an established central defensive partnership against Brighton.
Virgil van Dijk
Van Dijk will, of course, play at the back. He’ll be in high spirits after winning the PFA Player of the Month award following his exploits in December.
Robertson will make up the back four and operate on the left-hand side of the defence.
If Matip is not fit, Klopp could play Fabinho in central defence. However, the manager is likely to be keen on deploying the Brazilian in his preferred holding role.
Alongside Fabinho in midfield, it is likely that Wijnaldum will be selected ahead of James Milner.
Klopp could look towards Shaqiri to help Liverpool break down a resilient Brighton side.
Mane is in line to start against the Seagulls. He’ll be desperate to get back on the scoresheet.
Salah will start. After recently winning the African Player of the Year award for the second time in a row, he’ll be full of confidence.
Firmino is poised to make up the attacking quartet and will be keen to find space among a tight Brighton backline.
