Brighton vs. Liverpool – EPL, November 28, 2020
Brighton was among many people’s three to go down before the season started – and it does look as though it will be another tough year for the Seagulls.
But Graham Potter is getting some results at the Amex and will be looking forward to seeing if his players can deal with the attacking strength of Liverpool on Saturday.
Brighton vs. Liverpool Odds
Brighton surprised more than few with the win away at Villa last weekend but BetOnline is not taking that result as a sign that it can beat anyone in the league.
The odds do seem a little unkind to the home side, but it would be a big surprise if Liverpool didn’t come away with three more points here.
Assessing the Teams
Brighton fans were hoping that Danny Welbeck would be the attacking signing that would bring in the goals at the Amex – something that had bee missing in the main for the last few years. He has never really been prolific – because of injuries – but he scored in the win against Villa last weekend and will be looking forward to testing a makeshift Liverpool defense here.
The Seagulls have still only won two games all season though – and none at home. If Potter cannot work out how to get more from his side then it will definitely be battling against relegation again this season. Tariq Lamptey will also be missing because of his red card picked up against Villa.
Liverpool should be at its most beatable at the moment. Jurgen Klopp is dealing with an ever-growing injury crisis and can look at only Andy Robertson at the back as a regular starter. But the results have still not been bad – and that is mostly down to an amazing array of attacking talents.
Diogo Jota is the latest addition to that group – and it was he who scored the second in the convincing 3-0 victory over Leicester last weekend. The game was supposed to be a test of Leicester’s title aspirations, but turned out showing that Liverpool should be backed to repeat the title win of last season. Brighton should be wary on Saturday.
Brighton vs. Liverpool Prediction and Pick
Liverpool to Win-167
The injury ‘crisis’ that Klopp is complaining about – alongside his view on the fixture list – doesn’t actually seem to be effecting Liverpool too much. The 7-2 reverse at Villa is still the lone defeat this season and the club sits second in the table.
The squad might be stretched a little later in the year, but at the moment things are looking good for the champions.
