Picking the Best Potential Brighton Lineup to Play Liverpool on Saturday

Brighton host high-flying Liverpool on Saturday in the ​Premier League, as they look to improve on an decidedly average run of form in recent games.


The Seagulls are currently tenth in the league, only five places behind ​Liverpool, and will want to prove to the Merseysiders why that's the case.


Here's how ​Brighton could potentially line-up to face Liverpool...

Goalkeeper

  • Ryan

Ryan kept a clean sheet against Palace on Tuesday, making a string of decent saves to keep the ball out of his net.​

Defence

  • Bruno

  • Dunk

  • Duffy

  • Suttner

​Lewis Dunk put in one of the best performances of any Brighton player so far this season on Tuesday, and will need to do just as well to keep out on of the best attacking setups in the game this weekend. 


Manager Chris Hughton will not want to shuffle around with a defence that kept a clean sheet, so we're likely to see the same back four that faced Palace. 

Midfield

  • Knockaert

  • Stephens

  • Propper

  • Izquierdo

Brighton have barely rotated their first eleven all season unless forced to, and this strong midfield will likely stay the same.


Anthony Knockaert put in his man of the match performance against ​Crystal Palace, with Izquierdo being the focal point of wing attacks on the left, Liverpool's shaky full-backs could well be a target to exploit.

Forwards

  • Murray

Glenn Murray has four goals this season, but hasn't scored since the 1-0 away win over ​Swansea on the 4th of November. 


The former Palace and Bournemouth striker will want to do a little better, and if Knockaert and Izquierdo pick enough holes in the Liverpool defence to get a cross in, he definitely has the talent to put one or two away.
