Brighton vs Liverpool Mar 12, 2022 Match Preview and Stats


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will likely have all five key members of his talented attacking roster available for selection for this weekend’s Premier League game against Brighton.

Roberto Firmino has missed the last six games due to an injury suffered in the first leg of the Champions League tie against Inter.

It was expected that he would return to the squad for the second leg after being involved in full training, but the Brazilian was allowed the extra few days to recover before Brighton, which will likely see him involved.


Klopp must decide between Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz for his front three, which is certainly a nice conundrum to have.

For this one, Firmino might join Salah and Mane in a vintage Liverpool front three.

Ibrahima Konate missed the second leg against Inter on Tuesday after picking up a knock.

It is not believed to be serious and he should be free to feature against Brighton, but Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk will likely start in the centre of defence.

Thiago has only just returned from a hamstring issue and was on the end of a shocking tackle from Alexis Sanchez in the Champions League, so he might be rested, with Naby Keita playing in midfield.

Alisson will start in goal behind a back four of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk and Andy Robertson.

Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Keita could make up the midfield three.

Diaz and Jota may be left disappointed, but Liverpool may go with Mane, Salah and Firmino as the front three.
