Brighton and Liverpool are playing against each other in a match of round 22 of the Premier League. The Seagulls are on the 13th place in the standings with 26 points. Just like the last season, Brighton are performing well at home and have lost only against Tottenham and Chelsea. However, the challenge that expects them on Saturday will be far from light as they have to play against the leader in the league – Liverpool.
In the previous round of the Premier League, Liverpool lost against Manchester City which ended their run without a defeat. In the next game, The Reds were knocked out from the FA Cup by Wolverhampton with 2-1. In the match against Wolves, Jurgen Klopp gave rest of a big part of his key players, including Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané.
The freshness in the rested players of Liverpool will undoubtedly give them a slight advantage on Saturday. The Reds have lost points in only in their away fixtures against teams from Top 5 – Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal. However, Brighton should not be underestimated, and since the promotion of The Seagulls in the Premier League, they showed that are not afraid of the top teams. Albion have scored in all their home games in the league and were defeat by just one goal by Tottenham and Chelsea (losses with 1-2 in both fixtures).
Liverpool have problems with injured players, and their defence may be vulnerable to the dangerous attacks of Brighton. It would be stupid to talk about a possible mini-crisis in the team after two consecutive losses in 2019, but the defeats would undoubtedly have had a negative impact in the dressing room. We will trust the hosts’ excellent performance in front of their fans, and we will look for a value bet. I will back Brighton +1.5 Asian Handicap, with Liverpool 2-1 Correct Score.
