Betting Tip: Yves Bissouma to be shown a card
Liverpool were pegged back on Wednesday in the Champions League, losing 2-0 to Atalanta in what was an altogether dismal display at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp will be keen to move past that blot on an otherwise fairly rosy list of recent results, and it’s worth noting he did rotate for that game.
Brighton have stuttered along so far this season and have looked far more threatening than their two wins and position in the table suggest. Albion play some fantastic football going forward, but defensive lapses have let them down.
Graham Potter’s side will look to build on a hard-fought 2-1 win at Villa Park last weekend, while their last opponents know all too well that this Liverpool side can be far from unbeatable on the road.
With Liverpool having played on Wednesday this certainly won’t be an easy game, though Jurgen Klopp did manage to rest some of his key players ahead of the weekend.
We’re going to look away from the match result markets for this given the fairly unpredictable nature of both sides of late.
Yves Bissouma has been booked four times already this season, one being that memorable red against Newcastle in September. He’s been shown a card in his last two games and is prone to a cynical foul to halt quick breaks and counter attacks.
The 24-year-old has attempted the most tackles for his team in their last two games and is likely to have his hands full against Liverpool’s attack. He’s 10/3 to be shown a card and that’s worth playing here.
Brighton vs Liverpool Odds
Liverpool are clear favourites here as expected. Brighton's poor form at home sees them come into this as the clear underdogs, but this injury-struck Liverpool side isn't the behemoth it was last season.
