Team News
In what was previously an all-too familiar sight for Liverpool supporters, Lallana came off injured in the first half of Brighton's draw with Leicester last weekend, and the 34-year-old will not be available for the clash with his former club here.

The Englishman is joined in the infirmary by long-term knee victim Jakub Moder, as well as Levi Colwill - who is facing up to six weeks out with a quadriceps injury - and Facundo Buonanotte, who damaged his spine on international duty recently.

In Lallana's absence, Pascal Gross will likely move into a midfield role as Alexis Mac Allister shifts further forward, allowing either Joel Veltman or Tariq Lamptey to come in at right-back.

Having revealed his desire to leave Brighton following a rejected £60m bid from Arsenal, Moises Caicedo is supposedly set to miss out as well after missing training on Saturday, which could open the door for Billy Gilmour to start.
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; Veltman, Dunk, Webster, Estupinan; Gilmour, Gross; March, Mac Allister, Mitoma; Ferguson

As for Liverpool, the quintet of Virgil van Dijk, Arthur, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino all remain sidelined by injury, and Klopp has now ruled Fabio Carvalho out of the contest with an unspecified issue. Nat Phillips is also dealing with a nasty cold but could leave before the end of the month anyway.

While plenty of Premier League teams will rotate heavily for the weekend, Klopp is unlikely to sanction too many changes, although Trent Alexander-Arnold and Darwin Nunez can expect to earn recalls to the starting lineup after starting on the bench against Chelsea.

Eighteen-year-old midfielder Stefan Bajcetic was recently rewarded with a new deal following his breakthrough period, and the Spanish teenager will hope to keep Fabinho at bay once again.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Kelleher; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Konate, Robertson; Thiago, Bajcetic, Henderson; Salah, Nunez, Gakpo
Prediction: Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 Liverpool
