Brighton & Hove Albion welcome the Premier League leaders - Liverpool - to the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as Chris Hughton’s side look to extend their four-match unbeaten run, kick-off 3pm.

The Seagulls have taken five points from their last three top-flight matches and progressed to the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup with a 3-1 victory over AFC Bournemouth last weekend.

Liverpool have opened 2019 with consecutive defeats, losing their first Premier League match of the season against Manchester City before Wolverhampton Wanderers knocked the Reds out of the FA Cup.

Albion travelled to Anfield back in August for their second away game of the campaign, and Mohammed Salah’s first-half strike was the difference between the sides, as the Seagulls mounted a spirited performance.


Hughton confirmed that Bernardo (hamstring) will miss this weekend's match against the Premier League leaders, while Alireza Jahanbakhsh (Asian Cup) and Jose Izquierdo (knee) will also be unavailable.

Liverpool have a big injury list heading into Saturday’s game, including Virgil Van Dijk (illness) and Jordan Henderson (knock), who are both doubtful for the match at the Amex.

Dejan Lovren (hamstring), Adam Lallana (muscle), Joel Matip (collar bone), Joe Gomez (ankle) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee) are all sidelined for the Reds.


The Seagulls came from behind to draw against Arsenal on Boxing Day, before taking all three points when Everton visited the Amex Stadium, with Jurgen Locadia firing the winning goal.

Albion then found themselves 2-0 up against West Ham United at the London Stadium, thanks to goals from Dale Stephens and Shane Duffy, but the Hammers hit back twice to earn a point.

Hughton’s men turned their attention to an Emirates FA Cup trip to the Vitality Stadium, and goals from Anthony Knockaert, Yves Bissouma and Florin Andone put the Seagulls in the hat for the next round.

The Reds ended 2018 in fine form, winning 4-0 against Newcastle United and beating Arsenal 5-1 at Anfield before the turn of the year.

But a 2-1 defeat Manchester City ended Liverpool’s 20-game unbeaten start to the league season, before Jurgen Klopp’s side crashed out of the FA Cup, losing 2-1 against Wolves at Molineux.


Albion travelled to Anfield in confident mood after beating Manchester Uno3-2 at the Amex, but last season’s top goalscorer in the Premier League, Salah, found the back of the net after 23 minutes.

Knockaert went close for the Seagulls shortly after the break, but the Frenchman fired narrowly wide after linking up well with Glenn Murray in the final third.

Pascal Gross had his team’s best opportunity to level the game in the 88th minute, as he powered a header towards goal form Martin Montoya’s cross, but Reds shot-stopper Allison made a crucial save.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Mohamed Salah

The former Chelsea player took the Premier League by storm after returning to England for a second spell last season, joining Liverpool from Serie A side Roma.

Salah found the back of the net 44 times in 52 matches across all competitions, which included 32 goals in Liverpool’s league campaign and ten strikes in their journey to the UEFA Champions League Final.

The 26-year-old has continued his fine form in front of goal this season, scoring 13 goals in his opening 21 league matches of the season, while also laying on eight goals for his team-mates.

The Egyptian was the match-winner when Hughton’s side visited Anfield earlier this season, and also scored in Liverpool’s 4-0 win over the Seagulls in the final game of the 2017/18 campaign.

Four Liverpool players look to dispossess Glenn Murray at the Amex Stadium.
  • Albion are beaten 1-0 by Liverpool
  • Mohamed Salah scores the only goal from the penalty spot
  • Game played in front of an Amex record crowd of 30,682
  • The Seagulls next face Manchester United in a week’s time

Brighton & Hove Albion succumbed to a 1-0 defeat against Liverpool in a cagey and closely-fought contest at the Amex Stadium.

Albion more than held their own and frustrated the Premier League leaders for large periods of the game, but Mohamed Salah’s second-half penalty was enough to give the Reds all three points in front of an Amex record crowd of 30,682 spectators.

Chris Hughton made one enforced change from the last Premier League fixture away at West Ham United, with Gaetan Bong replacing the injured Bernardo.

Under-23 midfielder Max Sanders took his place on the bench for his first-ever inclusion in a Premier League squad.
Liverpool worked the first opening of the game when Andrew Robertson made a driving run down the left, and his cross went just behind Sadio Mane before narrowly missing the outstretched leg of Roberto Firmino in the box.
Down the other end Pascal Gross swung an enticing cross towards Glenn Murray, but the striker’s header went over the bar.
The game became a rather cagey affair with few chances for either side, as Fabinho headed away another Gross ball towards Murray.

The Reds came close to breaking the deadlock themselves and surged forward with pace, resulting in Xherdan Shaqiri glancing his header just wide from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross.
Albion kept their defensive discipline against the visitors, who had the majority of possession without causing too many problems in what was turning into a tactical contest.
The Reds didn’t give David Button too much to think about, as Lewis Dunk comfortably headed away Jordan Henderson’s cross.
The Seagulls did get some joy breaking forward down the right-hand side, and Martin Montoya was next to test the Reds defence with a fine cross which was cleared before Jurgen Locadia managed to latch onto the loose ball.
Salah had the first chance after the re-start, but the forward’s angled strike was easily saved by Button.
But the Egyptian won the visitors a penalty just moments later, after being pulled down by Gross, and despite guessing the right way Button couldn’t keep out the forward’s strike with 50 minutes played.
Gross had a chance to level the scores after being picked out by Montoya, but the German’s close-range strike was blocked.

Solly March then looked to pick out Locadia in the box, before Dale Stephens struck the loose ball wide with a shot from distance.
The Dutchman then had a chance himself and saw his long-range attempt pushed behind by Alisson, as Albion looked to increase the pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Liverpool pressed forward in search of a second, as Alexander-Arnold’s dangerous free kick found Sadio Mane, but Dunk was on hand to clear away the loose ball.
Bong broke forward down the other end for the Seagulls and played a fine cross into the box which substitute Florin Andone couldn’t quite divert goalwards.
Georginio Wijnaldum and Mane both came close to scoring a second for the visitors late on, while Salah missed a golden opportunity after shooting wide from inside the box, as the game finished 1-0 to the visitors.
ALBION: Button; Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Propper, Stephens, Gross (Kayal 79); March (Knockaert 66), Murray (Andone 66), Locadia.
SUBS NOT USED: Steele (GK), Balogun, Bruno, Sanders.
