Brighton v Liverpool LIVE commentary and team news: Reds look to pressure Man City – kick-off time, breaking news and how to follow

The Reds will move within three points of the summit if they beat Brighton and City will not play until Monday night’s trip to Crystal Palace.

Brighton won an impressive draw at Anfield in October, coming from two points down to secure a point.

But the Seagulls come into this game in poor shape after losing their last four high-flying games on the rebound.

Brighton v Liverpool: what has been said?

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp:“So far the boys have done incredibly well and why shouldn’t I think we can’t continue [and win the title]?

“It’s hard work, but the boys are ready. We will try everything, but we cannot call it a title race because we are still behind.

“We try to win football games, but let’s see.

“Brighton aren’t the best in the world, but they are incredibly good.

“Potter knows his football and knows he has a great chance to make us struggle.”
