Host commentator

– Liverpool have won each of their last nine meetings with Brighton in all competitions (a run stretching back to January 1991), netting 27 goals in the process and conceding just seven.

You may have noticed that Joel Matip is not in Liverpool’s matchday squad today… 

Fear not Reds supporters – he’s not injured! Liverpool are simply monitoring his workload amid a hectic schedule. 

Because, I don’t know if Jurgen Klopp has mentioned it or not, but apparently his side are playing a lot of games in quick succession at the moment… 

Well, it’s not often he’s not in the starting XI – but after playing on Wednesday and ahead of Ajax on Tuesday, Sadio Mane is on the bench today. 

A rare start for Takumi Minamino in the Premier League!

Sadio Mane is on the bench.
