Liverpool will be looking for a significant improvement in form when they return to action after the international break.

Following the postponement of their games against Chelsea and Wolves, this will be Liverpool’s first league game in almost a month.

Meanwhile, Brighton step onto the pitch for the first time since Roberto De Zirbi took charge, replacing Graham Potter after joining Chelsea.

Andy Robertson isn’t far off making a comeback, but he’s unlikely to be risked with an immediate departure. Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are unlikely to be available until late October at the earliest.

Ibrahima Konate is close to recovering from injury, while Jordan Henderson is in contention having not played for the club since the late win over Newcastle in August.

Enock Mwepu was hospitalized with illness while on international duty with Zambia so it is a major doubt for the trip to Anfield.

Adam Lallana was involved in pre-match training, having been briefly appointed as temporary club manager before De Zerbi’s appointment.

Liverpool vs Brighton Prediction

It’s hard to know what to expect from Brighton as they start life under De Zerbi on a tough day away.

Liverpool will be hoping the international break will bring a change of fortune, putting a very poor start to the season behind them. With the return of midfield options and this opportunity to reset, Klopp’s side are now set to kick into high gear against a Brighton side getting used to a new manager.

Liverpool win 2-1.
