Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool will be hoping to maintain their faultless start to the Premier League on Saturday.
The relentless Reds have collected maximum points thus far, smashing six goals in against West Ham and Crystal Palace.
Their next test this weekend are a buoyant Brighton side, who will be brimming with confidence after beating Man United.
Following a drab display by Mourinho‘s men, The Seagulls capitalised to earn a 3-2 victory.
However, with such lacklustre performances a rare occurrence at Anfield, Chris Hughton’s troops will be threatened more on Merseyside.
We can snatch up 4/6 on the hosts to score either side of half-time and this is an attractive price, given their superiority. Last season, both meetings between the teams saw this bet pay out and it has also banked in Liverpool’s first two fixtures.
Jürgen Klopp could name an unchanged side from the team who started at Crystal Palace.
Brighton’s Lewis Dunk, Bruno, José Izquierdo, and Florin Andone will all be absent.
Potential Liverpool Starting XI: Alisson, Robertson, van Dijk, Gomez, Alexander-Arnold, Milner, Keïta, Wijnaldum, Mané, Salah, Firmino.
Potential Brighton Starting XI: Ryan, Bong, Balogun, Duffy, Montoya, March, Pröpper, Stephens, Groß, Knockaert, Murray.
