Liverpool vs Brighton

Brighton and Liverpool will go head-to-head on Saturday.

The Seagulls begin the weekend 12th in the Premier League after losing their last two outings.

However, those two ties did come away to Manchester United and vs an in-form Leicester City side.

But it does look as though Brighton will be set for a third straight loss in the PL.

That is because table-topping Liverpool remain unbeaten in their first 13 league outings this campaign, winning 12 and drawing one.

Potter confirms Dunk is available

While any sort of decent result does seem rather unlikely for Brighton, they have been handed one boost prior to facing the European Champions.

Brighton skipper Lewis Dunk missed their 2-0 defeat to Leicester this past weekend.

However, Graham Potter confirmed on Thursday that the towering central defender is available for selection vs Liverpool:

“It’s a big boost to have Lewis Dunk back this weekend. He’s been great for us and anyone would miss their skipper, so we’re delighted to be able to have him back for selection.”

Potter also provided updates on Solly March, Aaron Connolly and Bernardo ahead of Liverpool:

“We’ve got Solly March who has a bit of tightness in his groin so he’s doubtful at the moment for the weekend. Aaron Connolly is back in the squad and training now too. Bernardo got his first 45 minutes last night but Saturday will come a bit too soon.”
