Team News
Liverpool will remain without Andrew Robertson (knee), Naby Keita (thigh), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring), Calvin Ramsay (back) and Kaide Gordon (pelvis) for the visit of Brighton on Saturday.

However, Ibrahima Konate, Curtis Jones and Caoimhin Kelleher could all be available to be named in the matchday squad for the first time in a competitive match this season, although the trio may not be risked given the amount of games to come in October.

Jordan Henderson also returned from injury to make a late cameo for England during the Three Lions' 3-3 draw against Germany on Monday, and he could be named in the starting XI in order to provide valuable experience in midfield.

Diogo Jota, who created Salah's opener against Ajax and generally looked lively in a central role, is likely to receive the nod ahead of Nunez and Roberto Firmino having fully recovered from a hamstring injury.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Diaz

Brighton & Hove Albion
Brighton, meanwhile, will travel without Jakub Moder (knee) and Adam Lallana (calf), who will be desperately disappointed to miss out on playing against his former club.

De Zerbi generally favoured a 4-2-3-1 formation at Sassuolo, but he may retain Potter's preferred back three system for now, with the 43-year-old unlikely to make many changes to the starting XI that thrashed Leicester last time out.

Enock Mwepu has been suffering from a fever, though, which ruled him out of competing for Zambia during the international break, and he is likely to be left at home as a precaution.

As such, Leandro Trossard could move further up the pitch, with wing-backs Tariq Lamptey and Pervis Estupinan potentially fighting for a spot on the opposite flank to Solly March. The former could win that particular duel in order to allow March to play on his natural left side.
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; Veltman, Dunk, Webster; Lamptey, MacAllister, Caicedo, March; Gross, Trossard; Welbeck
Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Brighton & Hove Albion
