Brighton travel to Anfield to face Liverpool this weekend as they aim to return to winning ways in the Premier League.

Last weekend's second half display in Brighton's 4-1 defeat to Man City offered encouragement for Graham Potter, but he will be keen to end a winless run in the league which stretches back to September 19.

The Seagulls face a Liverpool side in red hot form, but they will take solace from their recent record against 'Big Six' sides, which included a famous 1-0 victory at Anfield last season.

Here's how Brighton could lineup.

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Robert Sanchez (GK) - Left wanting for Ilkay Gundogan's goal last weekend and will be keen to respond with a strong performance.

Shane Duffy (CB) - Dropped to the bench for the Man City defeat, which surprised a few given his form this season.

Lewis Dunk (CB) - An indispensable figure at the heart of the Brighton backline.

Adam Webster (CB) - Likely to come into the team following Dan Burn's injury.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Joel Veltman (RWB) - Filled in on the right hand side of the back three last weekend, but should play higher up the park this weekend.

Pascal Gross (CM) - The 30-year-old offers defensive solidity and will be required to help out the defence against the dangerous Salah.

Adam Lallana (CM) - Returning to his former employers, the Englishman's calmness in possession will be key for the visitors.

Jakub Moder (CM) - The Poland international's physicality should help Potter's side go toe-to-toe in midfield with Liverpool.

Marc Cucurella (LWB) - His attacking threat down the left hand side will give Trent Alexander-Arnold much to think about.

3. Forwards
