Liverpool vs Brighton LIVE: Latest Premier League updates
Follow all the live action from Anfield as Jurgen Klopp’s Reds host Graham Potter’s Seagulls


Potter on Brighton’s trip to in-form Liverpool

A week removed from Liverpool’s demolition job on rivals Manchester United, Jurgen Klopp’s side host Brighton and Hove Albion with the same mentality. The Premier League title race appears set to be a relentless battle between the Reds, champions Manchester City and European champions Chelsea.

The Seagulls have also kicked on after flirting with relegation last time, putting in the type of results that their performances deserved last term, with Graham Potter guiding his side up to fifth in the table entering this weekend. Brighton will be eager to bounce back after a heavy defeat to City last time out, and victory will lift them into the top four and above West Ham United, while the hosts will be eager to take all three points to pile on the pressure on league-leaders Chelsea, though a point will be enough to take top spot on goal difference.

Despite dismantling United last week, Klopp maintains his side can improve, reiterating that his side must defend better: “The world is a bit like this: you win 5-0 against United and everything is perfect. Well, it was not. United had clear-cut chances which we gave them. We should not rely on luck or Ali [goalkeeper Alisson]. I saw the first half; we gave too much away. We have some really impressive scorelines but you don’t expect that to happen all the time and I have no problem with winning a game 1-0. That is where we have to be ready.” Follow live build-up, team news and minute-by-minute updates from Anfield:


Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United

On TV, Roy Keane is lamenting Manchester United’s “lack of character” in the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool last weekend, going on to say Harry Maguire was a “robot” in his interviews after the match (he then went on to impersonate the ‘robot’).

Solskjaer has responded to the criticism this week by handing a start to Edinson Cavani and bringing Raphael Varane back into the side in place of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.

It will bring a change of formation for United, presumably to 3-4-1-2, with Bruno Fernandes behind Cavani and Ronaldo. It’s bold, but will it pay off?

Full time: Liverpool 2-2 Brighton

Brighton’s Leandro Trossard, after scoring the equaliser in his side’s 2-2 draw against Liverpool: “I think we started off poor in the first half but after they scored their second we came back into it.

“We got our goal and believed a lot more. What a good game, we could have won it as well, it’s such fine margins but we’re really happy with a draw.

“You come to Anfield, any point you can take off them feels really good. We had fighting spirit. It was such a big game for us so to get the draw here almost feels like a win. We need to keep building on this, I think we’ve been brilliant.”
