Avoid defeat today and Liverpool will go back to the top of the table.

They are one of six teams to have led the division overnight this season.

Liverpool have not won away from home in the league in their last three games – the defeat at Aston Villa followed by draws at Everton and Manchester City.

Not since early in 2017 (January – March) have the Reds gone winless in four on the road in the top flight, which was ultimately a sequence of five.

In all games played at 12:30pm under Klopp the Reds have lost four of 21 while they have won six and lost two of the 13 played away from home.

 

Seagulls

The Seagulls have yet to win at home this season in four league games. They lost 3-1 to Chelsea and 3-2 to Manchester United but have since drawn with West Brom (1-1) and Burnley (1-0).

They have not won in eight home league games since coming from behind to defeat Arsenal 2-1 in June with Lewis Dunk and Neal Maupay scoring in the last 15 minutes.

Brighton have kept two clean sheets at the AMEX in the league this calendar year.

The victory at Aston Villa last weekend was their second of the season in the top flight and they have won five of the last 27 in the Premier League.

Adam Lallana scored 22 goals in 178 games in all competitions for Liverpool before his summer move to Brighton. 18 of those goals came in 128 league appearances.
