Liverpool are enjoying a flying start to their Premier League campaign with back to back wins against West Ham United at Anfield followed by Monday night’s triumph over Crystal Palace on the road. They will be back in action on Saturday evening and are thriving to maintain the winning streak beating Brighton & Hove Albion who are also high on confidence following last weekend’s stunning win against Manchester United.
The Reds have made several significant recruitments this summer who have settled in quite well and are making a significant contribution to secure results. The Seagulls, on the other hand, are likely to defend deep to salvage something from this tricky away trip but will have to deliver a sublime show to upset Jurgen Klopp’s juggernaut.

Skipper Bruno Saltor is a few days away from returning to action following a thigh strain whereas Jose Izquierdo and Florin Andone, the attacker duo, are likely to remain sidelined with their respective knee and groin injuries.
