Liverpool v Brighton Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

With the Reds looking less than fresh after their European heroics, Al Hain-Cole expects them to endure a frustrating afternoon against Hughton’s men

Liverpool will be aiming to secure their place in next season’s Champions League when they welcome Brighton to Anfield on Sunday.

Two points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea and boasting a far superior goal difference, the Reds effectively need just a point to confirm their position in the top four.

Latest Odds

Having won five and lost none of the last six meetings between the teams, they are 4/25 (1.16) favourites with SportPesa to leave nothing to chance by taking all three points in this final league clash.

Without a win in 12 league games on the road, Chris Hughton’s men are 16/1 (17.00) long shots to ruin the party with a shock win here.

Three of the hosts’ last five league games have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 7/1 (8.00) available on them being forced to settle for a single point in this one.

Team News

Joel Matip, Emre Can, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joe Gomez are all ruled out for Jurgen Klopp’s team, although Adam Lallana could be involved from the bench as he returns from a thigh injury.

Aside from long-term injury absentee Steve Sidwell, the Seagulls will arrive on Merseyside with a fully fit squad to choose from.

Klopp will have been extremely grateful to his close friend David Wagner on Wednesday, as the Huddersfield manager masterminded a surprise draw at Stamford Bridge that means the Reds do not need to win here.

This is particularly good news considering his side’s recent downturn in league form, with Champions League exertions clearly taking their toll on an injury-hit squad.

Having failed to score just four times in 32 league matches prior to the first leg of their quarter-final against Manchester City, Liverpool have drawn a blank three times in five games since.

Predictions

With only five teams having conceded fewer away goals than Brighton this campaign, odds of 20/27 (1.74) seem generous on them ensuring under 3.5 goals are scored for a 17th time in 19 on the road.
