Liverpool vs Brighton
England Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 3 February 2021
Kick-Off at 20.15 UK
The defending champions had finally snapped a five-game winless streak last Thursday when they cruised past Tottenham Hotspur 1-3 on the road.
It was a massive three-pointer in a magnificent performance from Jurgen Klopp’s men who have thus returned to the battle for the very top of the standings.
The victory in London has suddenly lifted the spirits in the dressing room as the Reds bagged another three goals on Sunday, easing past West Ham United (also in the capital).
The fact they have done so without Sadio Mane in the squad and without Roberto Firmino in the starting XI makes it even more impressive.
Liverpool now have a great chance to make it three victories on the trot on Wednesday evening when they play host to relegation-threatened Brighton & Hove Albion at the Anfield.
All eyes will be on Mohamed Salah who scored two fantastic goals in the mentioned drubbing of the Hammers at the weekend.
Mane has slight injury woes and could potentially miss this match as well, making Salah an even better option for the anytime goalscorer pick at the odds of 1.57.
Liverpool vs Brighton Head-to-head
- Brighton have done little to hurt the Reds historically, losing 12 and winning just 1 of 17 meetings with Liverpool.
- Nevertheless, the Seagulls managed to hold the reigning champions to a 1-1 draw when the two teams met each other in the first half of the season in Falmer.
- Interestingly, each of the last three head to head contests have seen goals scored at both ends.
Liverpool vs Brighton Prediction
Graham Potter’s men are enjoying the best form of the season ahead of the trip to the Anfield. They escaped on a seven-point distance from the relegation zone after clinching seven points in the last three league affairs.
The Seagulls won three and drew one of the last four matches in all competitions, a thread that includes an impressive 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday evening.
Brighton kept three subsequent clean sheets in the Premier League and they had conceded just one goal in a narrow defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium beforehand.
However, looking at Liverpool’s (Salah’s) impressive attacking form in the last couple of fixtures, we can find the value in backing the Over 2.5 goals FT pick at the 1.66 odds.
