Jurgen Klopp’s side sit eighth in the table with just two wins from their opening six matches, the club falling a long way off the standards set in recent seasons.
Following the postponement of their matches against Chelsea and Wolves, this will be Liverpool’s first league match in almost a month.
Brighton meanwhile take to the pitch for the first time since Roberto De Zerbi took charge, replacing Graham Potter after he joined Chelsea.

Liverpool vs Brighton prediction
It’s tough to know what to expect from Brighton, as they begin life under De Zerbi with a tough away day.
Liverpool will be hoping the international break brought a change in fortunes, putting a really poor start to the season behind them. With midfield options now returning and that opportunity to reset, Klopp’s side should now kick into gear against a Brighton side getting used to a new manager.
Liverpool to win, 2-1.
