Brighton vs Liverpool

The Seagulls would welcome Liverpool to the Amex for the day’s early kick-off.

Liverpool headed into the tie looking to bounce back from their shock 2-0 loss at Anfield vs Atalanta in the Champions League earlier this week.

Brighton, meanwhile, were aiming to keep just their second clean sheet of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign.

Neco Williams, who was in at right-back for the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold, gave away a penalty just 20 minutes into the tie with the score at 0-0.
