Liverpool host Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday afternoon hoping to kickstart their stuttering Premier League campaign at Anfield. The Reds have won just two of their six league games so far leaving them trailing league leaders, Arsenal by nine points already. Brighton arrive on Merseyside with a new manager in the dugout as former Sassuolo and Shakhtar Donetsk boss, Roberto De Zerbi takes charge of The Seagulls for this first time. Looking forward to Saturday's fixture we'll bring generous free bet offers and odds from our betting partners at Betfair.
As we've already touched on, Liverpool's start to the season has been far from ideal. Jurgen Klopp's side have won just two of their six league games. In addition to suffering defeat at Manchester United, Liverpool have also dropped points in draws against Fulham, Crystal Palace and Everton.
Brighton & Hove Albion currently sit fourth in the Premier League having taken 13 points from the first 18 available. The Seagulls have won four of their six league games, including an impressive 5-2 win against Leicester City last time out. Under former manager, Graham Potter, Brighton also claimed notable wins against Manchester United, West Ham United and Leeds United.
Liverpool v Brighton & Hove Albion: Head-to-head
Liverpool have lost just once in 15 meetings with Brighton in all competitions. In ten previous Premier League matches between the sides, Liverpool have won seven compared to Brighton's solitary win in February 2021.
Last time out, Liverpool were 2-0 winners at the Amex Stadium but they have dropped points on Brighton's last two trips to Anfield. The corresponding fixture last season saw Liverpool throw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 last October.
Brighton may sit fourth in the table but the loss of manager, Graham Potter to Chelsea cannot be underestimated. We're expecting Liverpool to win fairly comfortably on Saturday. Betfair's odds of 1/3 for a home win are somewhat generous but we think there's better value on several other markets.
Aside from the 9-0 win over Bournemouth, Liverpool are yet to score in the first half of any Premier League game this season. You can get Evens on the second half producing more goals than the first.
Trent Alexander-Arnold returns to Merseyside with a point to prove after his England snub in the UEFA Nations League. The Liverpool full-back didn't play a single minute of either one of England's recent internationals leading to speculation that he may miss out on a place in Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad. Alexander-Arnold is 13/8 to either score or assist at home to Brighton on Saturday and we'd encourage you to snap that offer up.
Mohamed Salah hasn't got his season off to the best of starts but he did find the back of the net in the Champions League in Liverpool's last game. The Egyptian was also on target the last time these sides met, scoring the second goal in a 2-0 win at the Amex Stadium in March. You can back Salah at 10/11 to score first or 16/5 to score at any time. If you're on the lookout for a betting option at a bigger price then you can back last season's Golden Boot winner at 4/1 to score two or more.
- Liverpool: 1/3
- Draw: 4/1
- Brighton & Hove Albion: 15/2
