Confirmed Liverpool lineup vs. Brighton: Reds unchanged as Klopp aims for 3 in 3

Jurgen Klopp has made no changes to is Liverpool lineup again for Saturday’s Premier League clash at home to Brighton.

The Reds return to Anfield after a battling 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace on Monday night, looking to preserve their 100 percent record this season so far.

In their way, however, are a strong Brighton side buoyed by a 3-2 win over Man United last time out, with Chris Hughton’s squad taking confidence from their display at the Amex.

Klopp opted for an unchanged selection to kick off the week, and he has kept faith with the same side again this time out.

Alisson makes his third consecutive outing in goal, and will be looking for another clean sheet to continue his excellent start to life at Liverpool.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson make up Klopp’s back four.

In midfield, Gini Wijnaldum takes up No. 6 duties, operating behind James Milner and Naby Keita, who received glowing praise from Hughton ahead of kickoff.

And Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are again charged with firing Liverpool to victory on Merseyside.

Fabinho is not among the substitutes for the second game running, but Klopp can call upon both Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge for extra firepower if needed.

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Keita, Mane, Salah, Firmino

Substitutes: Mignolet, Matip, Moreno, Henderson, Lallana, Shaqiri, Sturridge
