Liverpool vs Brighton Preview
Liverpool require a point from the match against Brighton to ensure they can’t be caught for fourth spot by Chelsea as the Red’s superior goal difference should be enough if the sides finish level on points.
Jurgen Klopp will have an eye on the Champions League Final and could use this opportunity to rest a few players. Danny Ings has been featuring lately and is hopeful of playing a part while Simon Mignolet and Alberto Moreno are also in line for a recall.
Adam Lallana has been struggling with a thigh problem and will face a fitness test while Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Joel Matip, Emre Can and Joe Gomez are all sidelined with injury.
Steve Sidwell is Chris Hughton’s only injury concern, otherwise the Brighton manager has his full squad to choose from. Leading scorer Glen Murray is expected to return to the lineup in what may be the only change to the side that lost against Manchester City in midweek

Liverpool vs Brighton Prediction
Liverpool’s form has dipped lately but Jurgen Klopp will want his players to give home fans a big send off by securing fourth spot in style. The Red’s have lost their last two games both of which were on the road, 1-0 v Chelsea in the Premier League and 4-2 at Roma which was all but a dead rubber in their Champions League semi final second leg. However, they are unbeaten at Anfield in the league and have won six of the last eight at home in all competitions.
Brighton have won one of the last nine games in all competitions, a surprise 1-0 home victory over Manchester United which sealed their Premier League survival for another season. The 3-1 defeat at the Etihad on Wednesday extended their winless away run in the league to 12 games.
Brighton have lost away to the other five teams in the top six and only managed to score in one. Given the host’s unbeaten home record, in which they’ve kept 11 clean sheets, we take Liverpool for a convincing win to nil.
