Liverpool suffered a tough start to the season, going winless in their opening three Premier League matches including a defeat to Manchester United, but Jurgen Klopp’s side have since bounced back. The return to form was kick-started by that 9-0 thrashing of Bournemouth and followed by a dramatic victory over Newcastle United.
In their final league game before the international break Liverpool were held to a goalless draw by Everton, struggling against their Merseyside rivals and followed that up with a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Napoli. But they will be looking to build on a 2-1 victory over Ajax secured by Joel Matip’s 89th-minute winner, ahead of a tricky period.
Liverpool are currently four points outside the top four and occupying the fourth and final Champions League spot right now are Brighton. The Seagulls have had an excellent start to the season, winning four, drawing one and losing one of their opening six Premier League matches.
Fulham are the only side to have beaten Brighton, a 2-1 victory at the Amex, and the Seagulls also boast the best defence in the Premier League conceding just five goals. However, those results were achieved under Graham Potter who has since moved on to Chelsea, being replaced by Roberto De Zerbi over the international break. Talk about your baptisms of fire.
