Liverpool vs Brighton
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 30 October 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Liverpool have been on absolute cloud nine lately. They just demolished arch-rivals Manchester United with a 0-5 scoreline at the Old Trafford, and they still remain the only unbeaten team in the league. This weekend, they easily are the favorites to follow up with another win against Brighton, who have been on a poor run lately.
Liverpool vs Brighton Head-to-head
- Klopp’s men have a 100% unbeaten record barring a single defeat.
- They have scored two or more goals in all but four clashes this past decade.
- They have a 100% winning record at home, disregarding a single meeting.
- The visitors have managed to score a total of just two goals at this venue since 2012.
Liverpool vs Brighton Prediction & Analysis
The Reds had just recorded a thumping 0-5 win on the road the past game week, against Manchester United. They are also on a 17-game unbeaten run, and 13 of these were wins.
They had scored three or more goals in nine of their last ten fixtures, and the only match in which they failed to do so were against defending champions Manchester City. (Note that they still did slot in two goals against the title-holders)
They have also been on an absolute roll at home since the second week of March, and recent performances have led to widespread acclaim that Mohammed Salah is currently the best player in the world.
On the other hand, Brighton lost 1-4 at home against Manchester City, and they are also on a four-game winless run. On top of that, they also have a poor h2h record against this rival, and judging all these factors, expect a win for the Reds this weekend at their home.
