Brighton vs Liverpool FA Cup prediction, lineups, results and betting tips brought to you by oddschecker expert George Gamble.
The hosts are riding a tidal wave of momentum and look very impressive under Roberto De Zerbi. They recently thrashed opponents Liverpool in the league and will be keen to do so again. However, Liverpool will be desperate to get a convincing result under their belts and a fascinating FA Cup encounter looks likely on Sunday.

Betting Tip: Brighton to Win, Brighton Most Shots On Target and Brighton Most Corners
I’m going with a stats based bet builder for this FA Cup clash between Brighton and Liverpool on Sunday. This exact betbuilder won in the previous meeting between these two just over a fortnight ago when the Seagulls ran out 3-0 winners and given the state of both sides, it seems a great price to land again.
The hosts have hit some good form going unbeaten across their last four matches in all competitions, winning three of them and scoring at least twice in each of them. Their rate of scoring actually goes beyond that run having hit the back of the net at least twice in each of their last six outings.
On the other hand, Liverpool have looked a shadow of their former selves. Yes, injuries have played a part but something appears to be missing and their only victory across their last five outings came in a narrow 1-0 away win against Wolves in the previous round of the FA Cup.
Brighton’s intense style under Roberto De Zerbi has seen them outplay their opponents and they rack up the corners, as evident by the fact they’ve averaged eight corners per game at home this season and nearly nine per game across their last three.
The hosts racked up nine shots on target against Liverpool recently and faced just two. I’m expecting this match to pan out in a similar way. Momentum is a huge factor in football and Brighton certainly have it right now, meanwhile, visitors Liverpool are floundering.
The prices on the goals market are anything but generous, but this bet builder looks as though it has legs and at 15/2, I’m more than happy to take it for a point.
