TheSportsRush brings Liverpool predicted line up vs Brighton, as Klopp’s side chases Manchester City at the top of the table.
Liverpool host Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday’s final clash. The Reds come into the fixture on the back of two wins on the bounce and are one of just six teams to still have a 100% record in the Premier League. The Reds have two clean sheets as well in two outings and will be hoping to extend their brilliant run against the Seagulls.
The Amex Stadium outfit comes into this one on the back of a 3-2 success versus Manchester United. Premier League’s newcomers from last season will be on high spirits ahead of this one. Let’s take a look at how Liverpool will line up against them.
Liverpool currently have the Premier League’s most formidable defence. Most of that is handed out to Alisson Becker who has been amazing since his debut.
Virgil van Dijk has also been classy in the last two encounters next to Joe Gomez who hasn’t failed either. Gomez is in popular demand to start over his Croatian teammate Dejan Lovren. He will probably partner with VVD at central defence.
Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold have been no less than superb either. The youngsters broke into Liverpool’s first team last season and since then haven’t looked back. The Brighton game could see them start once more along with each other on the flanks.
Liverpool went unchanged into Monday night’s Crystal Palace clash. This meant that Jordan Henderson and James Milner started together alongside Naby Keita. While the Guinean should comfortably start, one of Milner and Henderson could be sacrificed for Fabinho. My money is on the latter, who has already had a busy World Cup with England before being rushed back into Liverpool’s first team.
Roberto Firmino is yet to open his account for the Premier League campaign this year but is a strong candidate to start as the striker.

Sadio Mane has three goals in two appearances and should start on the left wing as well. Mo Salah, who earned the penalty at Palace and teed up Mane should be handed a start as well.
Liverpool’s predicted line up – Allison; Robertson, van Dyk, Joe Gomez, Alexander-Arnold, Milner, Keita, Fabinho; Salah, Firmino, Mane
