Brighton & Hove Albion v Liverpool head-to-head.
Liverpool have never lost a top-flight league match away at Brighton, and have won the last eight meetings in all competitions in succession.
Brighton & Hove Albion v Liverpool current form.
Brighton have been in relatively good shape since the restart, winning two of their four games to ease relegation fears. However, the Seagulls have not won back-to-back league games since November, so consistency is clearly a problem for Graham Potter’s side.
Liverpool weren’t themselves when they fell to a 4-0 defeat to Manchester City last week, and looked a little jaded when ambling to a 2-0 win over Aston Villa at the weekend. However, Jurgen Klopp’s side know that four wins from their next five games will break the Premier League points record. A perfect five wins from their final fixtures will break Juventus’ 102 points record for a top-flight season in one of Europe’s major five leagues.
Brighton & Hove Albion v Liverpool match prediction.
Liverpool’s title celebrations would have calmed – albeit temporarily – and full focus will now be on writing themselves into the record books, but Brighton will be full of confidence following some key wins over Norwich and Arsenal recently. That said, Manchester United won easily at the Amex last week, and Liverpool should also outclass the Seagulls on the south coast this evening. A routine 2-0 win for Liverpool beckons.
Best bet for Brighton & Hove Albion v Liverpool.
He won’t be the first name when you ask Premier League fans for their player of the season, but Sadio Mane has been instrumental in Liverpool’s title win this season. The Senegal forward has scored against 28 of the 30 teams he has faced in the Premier League, and Brighton is one of the two clubs that he is yet to strike against. It would be fitting to see Mane break the Reds’ away goal drought this evening by notching the first goal of the game.
