    18. Liverpool feel a little aggrieved as Pawson blows his whistle Firmino was pulled back.

    Salah had set Williams away there and was in…

  • BRIGHTON 0-2 LIVERPOOL

    16. Maupay leaves one on Henderson, there.

    The Brighton striker was at the thick of it against Arsenal a few weeks ago and is late on the Reds skipper.

    He gets a full set of studs on top of Henderson's boot.

    Ouch.

  • BRIGHTON 0-2 LIVERPOOL

    14. Salah could have made it three.

    He gets in behind at an angle but his right-footed shot is tame and straight at Ryan.

  • BRIGHTON 0-2 LIVERPOOL

    11. A reminder that before tonight Liverpool hadn't scored away from Anfield since Sadio Mane's winner at Norwich on February 15.

    Like London buses…

    9. And breathe!

    What a start for the Reds.

    The high press and devastating finishing working wonders for Klopp once again…

  • 8. Liverpool again win possession – this time in the middle of the park.

    And within seconds the ball is in the back of the net.

    Keita starts it by passing to Firmino who feeds Salah.

    The Egyptian lets it run and Henderson is on to it, whipping it into the corner from 20 yards.

    Lovely finish.

    BRIGHTON 0-2 LIVERPOOL

  • GOOOAAAALLLL!!!

    IT'S A PEACH FROM HENDERSON!!!

  • 5. That didn't take long…

    Ryan passes it out, Propper is pressed really well on the edge of the area by Keita who picks his pocket.

    He keeps his head and plays it across to Salah who is lethal with the finish.

    Opens up, first-time shot, bottom corner.

    BRIGHTON 0-1 LIVERPOOL

  • GOOOOAAALLLLL!!!

    THAT IS A GIFT FOR MO SALAH!!

  • BRIGHTON 0-0 LIVERPOOL

    4. Firmino goes close!

    Alexander-Arnold whips in a cross which is headed clear but only as far as Bobby.

    His strike takes a deflection for the first corner of the game…

    It is on Van Dijk's head but Webster does well to get it away.

  • BRIGHTON 0-0 LIVERPOOL

    3. As expected, Oxlade-Chamberlain starts high and wide on the left with Neco Williams, the teenager, is at left-back.

    He is enjoying a fair few early touches, cutting inside on to his preferred right foot.

  • BRIGHTON 0-0 LIVERPOOL

    2. Maupay makes a good run in behind as the ball is fed down the right channel.

    The Frenchman gets to it and is through but the flag was already up.

  • BRIGHTON 0-0 LIVERPOOL

    1. An early touch for Alisson as Maupay looks to cause chaos.

    The Brazilian slides out to gather.

  • PEEEEP!!

    AND WE'RE OFF AT THE AMEX!!

  • TAKE THE KNEE

    The two teams and referee Craig Pawson all take the knee upon his whistle.

    Another powerful moment in the continued fight against racism.

  • GUARD OF HONOUR

    Brighton are out first and form a guard of honour.

    Again, Jordan Henderson proudly leads his team out through the middle.

  • FIVE MINUTES

    Five minutes to go until kick-off, then, ladies and gentlemen.

    Jurgen Klopp and Graham Potter will have dished out their final instructions.

    The players are about to come out at the Amex…

  • MORE FROM OPTA

    A few more from our friends over at Opta….

    • Liverpool have failed to score in any of their last five away matches in all competitions (D1 L4) – they are without a goal in their last seven hours and 42 minutes away from home. Only once in their history have the Reds gone more away games without a goal (8 games in April 1992 under Graeme Souness).
    • Brighton have scored 35 Premier League goals this season, equalling their tally from last season with five games remaining. It is one more than they scored in their first season in the competition in 2017-18 (34).
    • At the start of this matchday, Brighton are nine points clear of the relegation zone. It is the furthest ahead of the relegation zone the Seagulls have been all season, and the furthest since January 12th 2019, when they were 10 points ahead of 18th position.
    • Liverpool’s Sadio Mane has scored against 28 of the 30 opponents he faced in the Premier League, failing only against Middlesbrough (one game) and Brighton, who he has faced four times and had eight shots against without finding the net.
    • Since the start of the 2017-18 season, Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has been directly involved in 127 goals in 147 appearances in all competitions (92 goals, 35 assists), 22 more than any other Premier League player in that time.

    STAT ATTACK

    Let’s get our teeth stuck into some juicy pre-match stats….

    • Brighton have lost each of their last eight meetings with Liverpool in all competitions, including all five games in the Premier League.
    • Liverpool are unbeaten in all six of their top-flight away games against Brighton (W3 D3), with both teams finding the net in five of those six meetings.
    • Brighton have won two of their four Premier League games since the restart (D1 L1), as many as they had in their previous 18 (W2 D8 L8). The Seagulls are looking to pick up back-to-back wins in the competition for the first time since November.
    • Liverpool have won 29 of their 33 Premier League games this season – should they beat Brighton, they will have reached 30 wins in a season faster than any team in the history of English league football, with Man City holding the record in 2017-18 (35 games).
    • Brighton have lost all four of their previous Premier League matches against teams starting the day top of the table. Their last top-flight win over a side top of the table was back in December 1980, beating Aston Villa 1-0 with a goal from Michael Robinson.

    POTTER’S MAGIC

    Graham Potter was forced to conjure up his magic as soon as he arrived at the Amex.

    The Brighton manager replaced Chris Hughton last summer and looks close to achieved the No1 goal of staying up.

    But he knows it has not been all plane sailing…

    Potter said: “I think we're at the start of a process. The first year can be quite tricky. You've got a foundation but you're also trying to change things, so you have to be careful with what you're doing.

    “I think the saying, 'Fixing the plane while it's up in the air', is a good one because it's the toughest league in the world.”

    TEAM OF SCOUSERS

    Jurgen Klopp hopes he will see a Liverpool team full of Liverpudlians within the next decade.

    Local hero Trent Alexander-Arnold makes his 90th Premier League appearance tonight while fellow Scouser Curtis Jones is among the subs.

    Klopp said: “The dream is in ten years we have a team full of Scousers. But the door is open to all boys.

    “They don't have to be Scousers but they do have to show the commitment and patience we encourage in our youngsters to want to learn the game.

    “We are lucky in that we have more senior players who can show the younger ones how to develop.”

    LAST TIME OUT

    When these two met earlier in the season, it was a bonkers game at Anfield.

    Alexander-Arnold twice assisted Van Dijk within six first-half minutes before Alisson was sent off for a handball.

    From the resulting free-kick, Lewis Dunk outwitted Adrian to ensure it was a nervy end for the hosts, who held on for a 2-1 win.

    Liverpool now have a 5-0 record in the Premier League…
