Jurgen Klopp’s men will be looking to make it three Premier League wins out of three when they take on Brighton at Anfield
Played two, won two, scored six, conceded none. Things have gone very swimmingly for Liverpool so far this season.
And they will be looking to carry on the good momentum when they take on Brighton at Anfield on Saturday at 17:30.
Although Liverpool have looked very competent in their first two games – a 4-0 win v West Ham as well as a decent 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace – they will be wary of their opponents who upset the odds with a 3-2 victory over Manchester United last weekend.
However, the Reds are still firm favourites going into the game and this could spell an opportunity for Jurgen Klopp to rotate his starting XI as it’s only have been a five-day gap between their Monday night match at Selhurst Park and the visit of Brighton.
Summer signing Fabinho could make his first competitive start for the Reds as he gradually gets up to speed with the cut and thrust of English football. He may step in for Georginio Wijnaldum who reportedly didn’t train with the squad on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Daniel Sturridge could be given a chance to shine as Roberto Firmino also didn’t train with the squad on Tuesday. Here is talkSPORT’s predicted line-up:
We also believe club captain Jordan Henderson, who was a second-half substitute against Palace, will start the game to give James Milner a well-earned rest. Henderson will also be a good partner in midfield for debutant Fabinho.
This will also give Naby Keita the chance to play in an even more advanced role which in turn will help Sturridge play his more natural centre forward position as opposed to the false 9 role Firmino plays.
We expect the Reds to keep the same back line as the one they’ve had for their opening two games as Liverpool have yet to concede a goal this season.
