Despite their recent reinforcements Liverpool’s defence looks more ragged than ever with Alisson out with a mystery illness. Otherwise the only change is Firmino’s return in place of Origi. Ben Davies, their new centre-back signing from Preston, is on the bench. Brighton make two enforced changes to the side that beat Spurs, bringing in Burn and Alzate, and leaving out Veltman and Mac Allister.
Liverpool: Kelleher, Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Henderson, Robertson, Thiago, Milner, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri, Firmino, Salah. Subs: Adrian, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jones, Tsimikas, Origi, Davies, Rhys Williams, Cain, Neco Williams.
Brighton: Sanchez, Burn, Dunk, Webster, White, Gross, Bissouma, Alzate, March, Maupay, Trossard. Subs: Karbownik, Connolly, Lallana, Moder, Tau, Zeqiri, Walton, Weir, McGill.
