Liverpool Vs Brighton Premier League Football Score Match 14 January 2023

Brighton & Hove Albion managed to walk away from the road leg against Liverpool with a draw. They will face off against one another at 10 a.m. ET on Saturday at The American Express Community Stadium. Brighton will be strutting in after a win while Liverpool will be stumbling in from a loss. Brighton had enough goals to win and then some against Everton last week, taking their contest 4-1. Meanwhile, the Reds came up short against Brentford last Monday, falling 3-1. Liverpool is 8-5-4 (28 points) and Brighton is 8-6-3 (27 points), so if Brighton wins they will leapfrog Liverpool in the standings.

After losing their last match against Brentford, Liverpool will face Brighton on Saturday and need to get back to scoring the full three points to stay close to the top four of the table. As things stand, Jurgen Klopp’s team is seven points behind Manchester United, currently fourth with 35 points after 17 games. Brighton, on the other hand, had three wins in their last five matches and are only one point behind the Reds. Here’s what you need to know: Liverpool will need to assess the fitness of Darwin Nunez. The striker has been absent from training due to a minor issue and will be checked before the Reds name their squad for the clash with the Seagulls. “If he cannot train then, yes, that would rule him out,” Jurgen Klopp told his pre-match press conference on Friday morning. “We are waiting for the latest information; it is not a major one, but it still kept him out of training. We have to wait for that”.

Liverpool’s James Milner and Stefan Bajcetic are set to return to the fold after recovering from respective injuries. However, Roberto Firmino remains absent due to injury. The striker has not featured since the resumption of the season in December due to an injury sustained in training. Coach Roberto De Zerbi said there were no new injury concerns and he has a full squad available, but the head coach did confirm that Leandro Trossard will not be involved against Liverpool: “He isn’t on the list for next game. The last session before last game, when he understood he wasn’t playing, he left the session without telling me anything. I told him I don’t like this attitude”.

Liverpool will travel to the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon to take on Brighton & Hove Albion. Brighton held Liverpool to a 3-3 draw in the corresponding fixture in the first half of the season. It was incidentally Roberto De Zerbi’s first game in charge of the Seagulls. Brighton are slowly starting to look menacing yet again and this is reflected in their 5-1 thumping of Middlesbrough in their latest outing in the third round of the FA Cup.

Argentinian World Cup hero Alexis Mac Allister bagged a brace while Pascal Groß, Adam Lallana and Deniz Undav got on the scoresheet for Brighton. De Zerbi’s side thrashed Everton in their latest Premier League encounter against Everton. The 4-1 win at Goodison Park helped Brighton remain within touching distance of the European berths. Their opponents Liverpool are sixth in the table, with 28 points from 17 games. The Seagulls have 27 from 17 and are currently eighth. If Brighton can eke out a win on Saturday, they will leapfrog Liverpool on the league table.

Jurgen Klopp’s men played out a 2-2 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the third Round of the FA Cup to set up a replay. Julen Lopetegui’s side seemed to have clinched a winner in the final 10 minutes of the game but it was chalked off as Matheus Nunes was ruled offside in the build-up. Liverpool suffered a 3-1 humbling at the hands of Brentford in the Premier League last weekend. It hasn’t been easy going for Klopp’s side this term. They cannot go past Spurs with a win on Saturday but they will be desperate for a victory as a loss could see them tumbling further down the table.
