Live team news, result updates and analysis from Anfield as Liverpool take on Brighton in the Premier League

Liverpool are hoping for three straight Premier League wins on Wednesday night when Brighton is welcomed to Anfield

The Reds have recorded two excellent 3-1 wins against West Ham and Tottenham in their last two games, but before that they have played five games without a win

In this run they slipped to third place in the table – four points behind leaders Manchester City, who has one game in hand, and four points behind Manchester United, who has played one more game

It is therefore important for Jürgen Klopp to win against the Möwen in order to be able to keep up with the top of the table – which they have done remarkably well so far given the number of injuries suffered by important players this season

“He drove behind me on the way to Anfield I’m not sure if he knew the way or just followed me

“He had two sessions with us but no real sessions because we were playing the other day, so it was a longer recovery. The same goes for Ozan

Liverpool may have been beaten here last time, but it should be remembered that this place is some kind of fortress

Only Manchester City have scored more points at home this season The Reds have scored 23 points out of a possible 30 at Anfield

You only lost two here last season, and that was long after you won the title

You need to rediscover that momentum here, however, as it has been around since the 2-1 triumph over Spurs on Jan. December without a win are no longer that Manchester City beat Burnley 2-0 on Turf Moor

In the last three games Jürgen Klopp had to deal with four different players who were no longer available.First it was Fabinho, then Matip, then Mane and now Alisson Klopp must have run under a couple of ladders at some point this season where black cats sat

With everyone else around them either winning or on their way to victory, Liverpool need to check this off in preparation for City’s visit on Sunday

It would be frustrating if the Reds slipped tonight, but it would be something typical of the way the season progresses

It’s nice to see Roberto Firmino back on the team today after playing against Tottenham and West Ham from the bench last week

Everything just seems to click when the Brazilian striker is on Song. Hopefully he can continue this form alongside Mohamed Salah in L4, which has not always been his happiest hunting ground lately

Brighton has been running a bit neat lately

They have only lost one of their last seven games and that was a close 1-0 at Manchester City

They have conceded only three goals in the last six games and won their last game on the road 1-0 in Leeds

You gave Liverpool a good game at Amex in November and the Reds can expect more of that Brighton are a nice side but they are getting results now too

One was enforced with Alisson – the other tactically with Firmino, who came back for Origi

So those social media rumors turned out to be correct. Well, those who said Alisson Becker would at least miss tonight

Liverpool have now confirmed the goalkeeper will miss tonight’s game due to illness They hope he can play against Manchester City on Sunday

The team news will be released shortly If all rumors are to be believed, it will be interesting to say the least

The Reds haven’t unbeaten at home and they haven’t won the last two games

But Liverpool have to fidget a little against Brighton here – they can’t afford to waste last week’s momentum

They drop to fourth place behind Leicester City in the HT Premier League results, and Man City are expanding their lead over the Reds to seven points

Jürgen Klopp, who had to do without high-ranking central defenders for most of the season, is now happy about two

The Senegalese international missed the weekend win against West Ham with an unspecified muscle problem His manager insisted that this was a minor setback

But it seems that after Klopp’s recent press conference he will also miss the Reds clash with Brighton

When asked if Liverpool’s injury situation was the same as it was at the weekend, Klopp said: “Yes, it is the way it was”

The Turk doesn’t have an international clearance yet, which means Ben Davies is the only potential debutant for the Reds tonight

The team news drops at 7:15 a.m., so it’s going to be a while until we definitely find out

Start at 8:15 a.m., stay with us to watch the preparations and the LIVE action before the game Jürgen Klopp’s team wants to achieve three wins in a row
