  • Saturday’s encounter will represent the 29th competitive meeting between the two clubs, with Liverpool registering 17 wins in comparison to 7 victories for Brighton.
  • However, the majority of those matches were played between 1958 and 1991, with only five contests being played since the start of the new Millennium.
  • Liverpool have prevailed in each of those games, scoring 16 goals in the process.

Both Teams

  • Brighton have scored in each of their 10 league matches on home soil so far this season.
  • It is worth noting that only Manchester City have managed more league goals than Liverpool this term.

(Thus a goal fest is to be expected).
