Liverpool will be looking to keep pace with the Premier League leaders by beating Brighton at Anfield tonight.
Unfortunately, Jurgen Klopp continues to manage a lengthy injury list and the Liverpool boss will be without at least seven first team squad players for the visit of Brighton later this evening.
It was confirmed earlier this week that Joel Matip has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
Virgil van Dijk has been stepping up his rehabilitation from a serious knee injury recently.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of tonight’s game, Klopp confirmed to Liverpoolfc.com that none of his other injury absentees will return for the Brighton game so he’ll have a similar squad to the one that featured against West Ham on Sunday.
So, Klopp still has a lengthy injury list to contend with as he looks for a win this evening that would see Liverpool move to within just one point of league leaders Man City – although they could extend their lead if they beat Burnley at Turf Moor.
Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Becker, Alexander-Arnold, Henderson, Phillips, Robertson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wijnaldum, Jones, Salah, Shaqiri, Firmino
Brighton XI (3-5-2): Sanchez, Webster, Dunk, Burn, Alzate, White, Bissouma, Lallana, March, Tau, Connolly
Kick off is at 21:15 (GMT +1)
