Sadio Mane On Bench - Liverpool Team vs Brighton Confirmed

Sadio Mane On Bench - Liverpool Team vs Brighton Confirmed

Brighton and Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton believes his side were given a harsh lesson in their 5-1 defeat by Liverpool and feels they are the best team they have played against since gaining promotion to the Premier League.

The German opened the scoring with a bullet header after half an hour, fully vindicating the decision to move Can back.

Trent Alexander-Arnold starts at right-back, while Dejan Lovren is partnered at centre-half by Emre Can. Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino carry the attacking threat.

The centre-back suffered an injury in the Reds' midweek league win at Stoke City and his most obvious replacement, Ragnar Klavan, has been ill.

Although both side started brightly early on in the game, neither keeper from either side was called into action within the first ten minutes.

Salah led the charge before feeding Coutinho, who swept a first-time cross in behind the Brighton defence for Firmino to tap in from six yards.

The Catalan giants found themselves being knocked back all summer long by Liverpool, who were demanding no less than €200million for their star man.

All of a sudden, Brighton were in the ascendancy but they struggled to create enough chances to seriously put Liverpool under pressure of letting slip a three-goal lead for the second time in two weeks.

Wijnaldum on the left of the back three frequently look a little lost, not knowing where to position himself or who should be marking whom. There was a lot of talk during the close season.

Tottenham Hotspur's patchy away form continued with a 1-1 draw at Watford but the North London club will be pleased with a point after playing much of the second half with 10 men.
