Though the Reds have generally been in blistering form in all competitions this year, there have been little signs that the pace of going for four trophies has started to take its toll. They beat West Ham 1-0 last weekend, but were relatively fortunate to win and needed some heroic defending by Trent Alexander-Arnold to prevent an equalizer. 

Then, in midweek, they were beaten 1-0 by Inter Milan at Anfield. Sure, they scraped through to the Champions League quarter-finals anyway, but manager Jürgen Klopp will be looking for better against Brighton.

Fortunately, Brighton are in terrible form themselves at the moment, having lost four EPL games in a row. They're almost certainly out of relegation contention, but will want to finish the season on a high having played so well earlier in the campaign. 

As far as team news goes, both sides have key players back in contention. Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino could feature after missing the last six games; he's on the bench today. Brighton midfielder Enock Mwepu is also among the substitutes after recovering from a hamstring injury.

For Liverpool, winger Luis Diaz starts up front alongside Sadio Mané and Mo Salah, while Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Naby Keita make up the midfield. Brighton boss Graham Potter makes four changes, meanwhile, including reinstalling Neal Maupay in the front two and bringing in Yves Bissouma and Alexis Mac Allister in the middle of the park. Here's how they line up:

Brighton: Sanchez, Lamptey, Veltman, Dunk, Cucurella, Alzate, Bissouma, Mac Allister, Trossard, March, Maupay.

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Keita, Henderson, Fabinho, Salah, Mane, Diaz.
