KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Brighton haven't taken long to accustomed to the challenges in the Premier League, and look the part to continue in the English top flight bar a spectacular slump in form.

Only against Manchester City (17) have Chris Hughton's sides conceded more goals than they have against Liverpool (15), though they've played twice the number of games against the Citizens (6). So far, though, the Seagulls have outperformed expectations, now sitting tenth-and level on points with ninth-place Leicester City.

"It's a really strong group of good players, good new signings", Klopp said. "He's been in good form for the last few seasons but most people in England may not have been so aware of that".

"If Man City keep winning like they do then there is no chance for anybody - but that's not our problem".

"Liverpool are unpredictable, they can be fantastic and bad in the same match".

After missing midweek's 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace, Chris Houghton looks set to recall left-back Gaetan Bong.

The Seagulls will, however, be without veteran midfielder Steve Sidwell.

Reds short-handed in central defence

Since suffering an embarrassing 4-1 loss away at Tottenham towards the end of October, Liverpool are now a side who are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League appearances.

Away games involving Liverpool this season have produced a league-high 31 goals.

Liverpool will be short of defensive options when they visit Brighton and Hove Albion today, after manager Jurgen Klopp ruled Joel Matip out of the Premier League clash. You only have to look at the goalscoring individuals and the record they've got. In Klopp's last three matches away from Anfield the Red's have found the back of the net 10 times.

"Joel Matip is out".

Liverpool went with Dominic Solanke leading the line against Stoke, but manager Jurgen Klopp will likely return to a more experienced forward, with Roberto Firmino the likely candidate.

"Adam Lallana is still building up his fitness; Ragnar Klavan was ill but hopefully he is not anymore, especially when you think about Joel Matip's situation". Meanwhile, Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah are expected to return to the lineup on Saturday after starting on the bench against the Potters. However, the Seagulls have had their own defensive issues, with only two clean sheets in their last 14 appearances, keeping Salah and co out will be a monumental challenge. I watched the video about the Brighton Kop in Brighton, it's very nice and we're coming now.
