Liverpool v Brighton tips: Reds can run riot against Seagulls at Anfield

| 25.08.2018

Liverpool and Brighton & Hove Albion both head into Saturday’s meeting at Anfield on the back of good results.

The Reds won 2-0 at Selhurst Park on Monday night, while the Seagulls pulled off a deserved home win against Manchester United.

But despite the visitors’ triumph over Jose Mourinho’s men, all the signs point to a pretty emphatic victory for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Match Odds

Liverpool have dominated recent meetings in quite some style. The pair’s last three meetings have ended with a trio of Reds wins. Those games have ended 6-1, 5-1 and 4-0 respectively.

Victory for Liverpool is 2/15, with the Draw priced up 7/1. As for a shock Brighton win, that’s a 22/1 shot.

Having won each of the last three head-to-heads by a margin of four or more goals, it’s 11/10 for the Liverpool -2 handicap to come in again. Meanwhile, a 4-0 scoreline in the Reds’ favour is 13/2.

Talking Tactics

The Reds are likely to stick with their trusted 4-3-3. Andrew Robertson netted his first Liverpool goal in May’s 4-0 defeat of Brighton, and he and Trent Alexander-Arnold could run Chris Hughton’s side ragged on the flanks.

Up top, Roberto Firmino is likely to spearhead the three-man offensive.

The South Coast club used a 4-4-1-1 against Man United. That worked well, with Glenn Murray bullying the Red Devils’ defence and Pascal Gross sat in just behind.

Goalscorer Odds

Mohamed Salah has carried on where he left off at Liverpool, netting their first goal of the 2018-19 season against West Ham United.

The prolific Egyptian is 4/9 to score Anytime against Brighton, while it’s 21/10 he breaks the deadlock.

Roberto Firmino netted twice against Hughton’s side last season, and is 11/10 to register here.

For the visitors, Glenn Murray is the best bet of a goal at 3/1. He netted 12 Premier League goals last term, and is already off the mark this season.
