Brighton, meanwhile, were given the runaround in the first half by champions Man City in their last league outing, with Graham Potter's side searching for their first league victory since September when they travel to Merseyside.

James Milner has been ruled out until the November international break after picking up a hamstring injury in last weekend's victory at Old Trafford.

Thiago Alcantara will not be available as he continues his ongoing recovery from a calf injury, even though he returned to training this week, while Fabinho's absence is also a 'bit more complicated' than first thought after he missed out last week.

Naby Keita has a good chance of returning despite being stretchered off at Old Trafford.

Liverpool have lost just once in their last 13 meetings with the Seagulls, although they won't need reminded about their last clash with Potter's men.

Alzate's second half strike condemned Liverpool to defeat at Anfield last season, as Brighton claimed their first victory over the Reds since January 1984.

Liverpool are in imperious form this season, spearheaded by the irrepressible Mohamed Salah in attack.

Infront of the Anfield crowd, they're likely to pepper Brighton's goal. A stalemate seems out of the equation, although Potter's side will fancy their chances of breaching the Liverpool defence.

Prediction: Liverpool 3-1 Brighton
