Liverpool vs Brighton Preview and Predictions

Liverpool vs Brighton Schedule and Kick-off League_Lane_13_May_2018

Liverpool’s form stuttered badly in the most recent period with the Reds winning just one of last five in all competitions. It should not, however, affect the top-four finish in the Premier League given Jurgen Klopp’s side enters the final day with a two-point cushion on last term’s champions Chelsea in fifth.

This means a draw here would guarantee Liverpool a place in the Champions League next term in spite of the loss in the derby with Chelsea last weekend at Stamford Bridge. The Reds have a much better goal difference compared to Chelsea. Nonetheless, we just can’t imagine Jurgen Klopp’s side defending a point against the likes of Bright here, meaning we can expect Liv’pool’s attacking trio to start strong and produced an impressive attacking display in the last game of the season in the Premier League at Anfield.

Liverpool vs Brighton: Head-to-head

  • Liverpool were brutal towards the Seagulls in the most recent set of H2H matches.
  • The Reds bagged an impressive 11-goal tally in last two wins over Brighton.
  • Interestingly, each of last five head to head meetings saw both teams on the score line.
  • Liverpool won four and lost one of five home ties against the Seagulls over the history.

Liverpool vs Brighton: Prediction

The visitors played hot and hold of late, but it was still enough for Chris Hughton and his men to save the Premier League status for the last year. They lost five and won just one of last nine games in all competitions, but managed to hold Sours to a draw and beat Manchester United 1-0 in the process.

In all, it’s hard to see the Seagulls causing the damager here knowing they lost four and drew one of last five league games on the road. Klopp will be without important midfield figures of Emre Can and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but the super impressive attacking trio (Salah, Mane and Firmino) should be enough for a confidence-boosting win before the Champions League final with Real Madrid later in the month in Kyiv.

Liverpool to win by two or more goals is our top betting option at 1.55, while you can also take the hosts to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the 1.57 odds.
