Team News:

Tariq Lamptey is sidelined through suspension following his red card against Aston Villa, while Adam Lallana will be assessed ahead of kickoff, with a groin problem threatening to deny him a reunion with the club he left in the summer.

Leandro Trossard is now back available, while Solly March, Davy Propper and Aaron Connolly are also expected to be passed fit for Saturday's match.

Alexis Mac Allister will miss out due to coronavirus, while Florin Andone, Jose Izquierdo and Christian Walton are also likely to play no part.

Danny Welbeck will be hoping for another start after opening his Brighton account against Villa last time out; he has not scored in consecutive Premier League games since January 2016.
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Ryan; White, Dunk, Webster; Veltman, Bissouma, Gross, March; Trossard; Welbeck, Maupay

Liverpool remain without a host of key first-team players for this match, although they were boosted by the returns of Mohamed Salah and Rhys Williams against Atalanta.

Salah is likely to start again this weekend, and his record against Brighton suggests that he could be a key figure, with five goals and three assists in six previous Premier League meetings.

Diogo Jota's omission in midweek was more a reflection of his increased importance to the team than a suggestion that he is still regarded as back-up to the main front three, and Klopp could once again name a front four including Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane this weekend.

While he may be spoiled for choice in attack, it is in defence and midfield where Klopp finds his options limited, with Fabinho set to return to the side to partner Joel Matip at centre-back.

Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold all remain sidelined for this match, while midfield quartet Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Xherdan Shaqiri are all expected to miss out once again.

Captain Jordan Henderson returned to full training on Thursday and so should be involved in some capacity, although he may be eased back into it rather than being named in the starting XI.

Liverpool are by no means the only team with injury problems, though, and Brighton could also be missing as many as seven players - although many of those could yet feature.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; N Williams, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson; Milner, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane; Jota

Prediction: Brighton & Hove Albion 1-2 Liverpool
