EPL: Reds set to dim Brighton

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Liverpool vs. BrightonVenue: Anfield StadiumKick off: 4PMLiverpool switch their focus back to the Premier League on Saturday when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Anfield.The Reds remain eight points clear at the top of the table having dropped only two of the 39 points on offer so far this season, but were held to a 1-1 draw in front of their own fans by Napoli on Wednesday night.Such has been Liverpool’s form in recent times that any match they do not win will cause headlines, but there had been warning signs prior to the midweek Napoli draw.Indeed, there are surprisingly few games this season in which the Reds can be said to have been at their best, yet they have still won 18 of their 21 fixtures across all competitions and sit eight points clear at the top of the table.It begs the question: just how will anyone stop them if they do rediscover their top form?The level of performance will only be of secondary importance for Jurgen Klopp given that his side continue to pick up results, and he will be aware that a drop-off would only be natural during a spell which will see them play 12 games in the space of 37 days.Even so, the failure to beat Napoli on Wednesday means that their final group game against Red Bull Salzburg on December 10 carries much greater importance, with defeat in Austria likely to see them crash out of the Champions League a little more than six months after lifting the trophy.Losing is not something Liverpool have made a habit of in recent years, though, and Saturday’s late triumph over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park made it 30 Premier League games without defeat stretching back to January, during which time they have picked up 80 points from a possible 90.Only two teams have ever enjoyed a longer unbeaten run in the competition’s history, and if Liverpool can extend that this weekend then they would equal their own top-flight club record of 31, set during the 1987-88 campaign.The Reds unsurprisingly went on to win the league that season, but the fact that they are being made to fight for every victory this term means that there has been no chance for complacency to creep in.Seven of their 12 top-flight wins have been by a one-goal margin, preventing anyone from looking too far ahead to the prospect of a first title in 30 years.Of course, with each passing week that looks more likely with Liverpool still eight points clear of Leicester City and nine above champions Manchester City – a commanding lead for a team that has lost just one of their last 52 Premier League games.A slip-up certainly does not look like coming at Anfield, where Klopp’s side have not lost in any competition since September 2018 and in the league since April 2017 – runs of 31 and 46 matches respectively.Curiously, though, Liverpool are currently enduring their worst clean sheet run since 1998.The Reds have conceded in each of their last 11 matches across all competitions and have only kept three shutouts throughout the season, all of which came with Adrian in goal.There have been no clean sheets at all at Anfield, which is a wholly unexpected chink in their armour given their strength in that department last season.Only Napoli have been able to truly expose that weakness to any great effect so far this term, and Graham Potter will no doubt have been watching the Italian outfit’s performance closely on Wednesday as they ended Liverpool’s 17-match winning streak at Anfield.Any result on Merseyside would further enhance the reputation of a manager that has already impressed so much that the club handed him a new six-year contract this week, just six months after he was initially appointed.It has certainly been an encouraging start for the Seagulls, who in terms of points are closer to the top five than they are the bottom three, but Potter will know just how quickly things can change and, while their current position of 12th will feel comfortable, they are only two points above the much more perilous 17th place.The timing of Potter’s new deal was a clear message of support following back-to-back defeats at the hands of Manchester United and Leicester City, particularly considering their fixtures do not get any easier. Liverpool possible XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Lallana, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane.Brighton possible XI: Ryan, Montoya, Dunk, Duffy, Burn, Alzate, Propper, Stephens, Trossard, Maupay, Connolly.Tags: BrightonEPLLiverpoollast_img read more
