Brighton has an Amex home ground in this round of 34 to welcome the new Liverpool king to rediscover the winning flavor. Whether The Kop will let the homeowners win shock thereby officially relegating early 4 rounds.
Brighton coach Graham Potter does not have a new injury problem for Liverpool welcome when Jose Izquierdo is already out of season and Steven Alzate will be assessed before the game because fitness is not guaranteed. Coach Potter could adjust his tactical plan a bit and switch to 4-3-2-1 as he did in the first leg match with Aaron Connolly replacing Dale Stephens in the wing wing position on the right. The pressure has been greatly reduced by having 7 points after 4 rounds since the tournament returned, most recently a 1-0 win over Norwich at Carrow Road on Saturday. Potter will be relieved that their next two matches face Liverpool and Manchester City this week and the two teams are no longer many goals. Brighton's achievement against Liverpool does not give them confidence as Liverpool have won the last 8 victories face to face and have been unbeaten since 1982 and have not lost to Seagulls since 1961, when both teams are in Division Two. Neal Maupay is their number one striker this season with 9 goals in their first Premier League season.

Liverpool have won in both matches and full time in 6 of the last 7 matches against Brighton in all competitions but have failed to score in the last 3 away games (Premier League). James Milner has left the field open and so is central defender Dejan Lovren, while Joel Matip will miss the rest of the season. Neco Williams and Curtis Jones were all substitutes in the 2-0 victory over Aston Villa but Jurgen Klopp was incapable of starting either of these two players and Takumi Minamino, Georgino Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino could join the main squad. like in the 2-0 win over Villa. Klopp's team lost 4 and did not win any of the last 5 away matches in all competitions.
