Liverpool travel to Brighton in search of three points and will hope to further climb up the table.
Yesterday, we predicted Liverpool’s starting XI vs Brighton but recent reports have suggested that the Reds are facing more than a few injury concerns.
First choice central defender Joel Matip has suffered a thigh injury which could keep him out of action for one month (Telegraph). Klopp has got a shaky defense and losing a senior defender is a massive blow.
In Joel’s absence, Klavan would have normally returned to the starting XI but reports suggest that the Estonian missed training due to illness (Express) and in such a scenario, he might not be fit enough to start.
Therefore, we can expect Trent Alexander-Arnold to start in the right back position and Joe Gomez will probably get the nod to start with Dejan Lovren in the central defense.
Here is Liverpool’s updated 4-3-3 XI vs Brighton.
