Liverpool haven’t played a Premier League game in almost a month due to a combination of game's being postponed and the international break. Jurgen Klopp will no doubt be itching to have his side back in EPL action, especially as their last result was a disappointing draw in the Merseyside derby. 

However, the extended break may have helped a few of Liverpool’s injured players return to the fold and could boost the team as they look to put a stuttering start to the season behind them. 

Brighton also haven’t played since early September, and the break was well timed for them as they lost their manager, Graham Potter, to Chelsea during this period. New boss Roberto De Zerbi has been given the luxury of a couple of weeks to assess his squad, but an away fixture against Liverpool is a daunting first match for any manager especially one new to the Premier League. 

Brighton have been excellent so far this season and currently sit in the top four, while Liverpool haven’t been at their best so far. Nevertheless, Anfield is a very tough place for any team to earn points, and Klopp’s Red will no doubt for extremely fired up for this game. 

Can Liverpool push themselves up the table with another win, or will Brighton’s new era begin with a famous win? Find out by watching a Liverpool vs Brighton live stream.
