Brighton and Liverpool face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Falmer Stadium. When these two teams faced off on October 1st, the two teams played to a 1-1 draw. 

Brighton currently sits in 8th place in the standings, having picked up 27 points. Brighton faced off against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup on Saturday, and they were able to secure a 5-1 victory. Pascal Groß scored in the 8th minute, and they never looked back as they cruised to the victory. Jakub Moder is still dealing with a knee injury, and he’s going to be out for this game. He should be back soon, but this game is still too early for that to happen. Lewis Dunk was rested in the last game, but it’s expected that he’s going to be able to play in this game. 

On the other side of this matchup is Liverpool, who sits in 6th place in the standings having picked up 28 points. Last Saturday, Liverpool faced off against the Wolves in the FA Cup and the game ended in a 2-2 draw. Darwin Núñez and Mohamed Salah both scored to help secure the draw. Liverpool had 65 percent of the possession and three shots on target, but the defense let them down. Diogo Jota, Arthur, Luis Diaz, and Virgil van Dijk are all still dealing with injuries, and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game. Cody Gakpo made his first start in the last game, and although he was inconsistent, it’s expected that he’s going to start again in this game. 

These are both teams that have had struggles defending all season, and it’s going to continue to be an issue in this game. This is a game that could have seven or eight goals scored, and even if it doesn’t go that high, this game is going to have at least four goals scored. Brighton scored five goals in the last game, and they will continue the successful scoring here. Back the over 3.5 goals to cash.
