Brighton vs Liverpool Prediction and Odds
Liverpool will look to improve their chances of becoming the new table-toppers when they meet Brighton for their next Premier League fixture on Saturday, 12th March. The Reds had a successful campaign over the last few weeks.
They recently won the Carabao Cup for a record ninth time after defeating Chelsea on penalties. Liverpool had to fight hard to secure their 7th straight win in the EPL against West Ham. The team manager Jurgen Klopp was quick to react in the post-match interview. He said:
“Today we were obviously not flying, we had to dig really deep and that’s what the boys did. It is necessary to get something out of this season that we keep on going and [there is] no time to rest, so just keep going.”
It is surely going to be a tough challenge for Brighton to avoid their fifth straight loss when they host the mighty Reds at the Falmer Stadium. The head coach Graham Potter spoke about team spirit after the disheartening loss against Newcastle. Potter said:
“You could see the spirit of the team was there, the players keep going until the end and we just ran out of time. We need to learn from the pain of the defeat, we need to try and get better, but there were lots of things that were positive.”
