Brighton and Hove Albion host Liverpool on Saturday in what could be a very entertaining fixture for neutral supporters.

The Reds will be confident of stalling the Seagulls’ steep upward trajectory in looking to recover from a defeat at Brentford last time out in the league.

Leandro Trossard is a doubt for this one, and transfer interest may be affecting the mindset of the Belgian at this stage of the season.

Jakub Moder is unavailable through injury, while Liverpool’s list of sidelined players is as follows: Arthur, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, Virgil Van Dijk and Roberto Firmino is unlikely to feature.

This match screams goals, look at some of the underlying numbers and trends of late, it was not difficult to settle on an angle for this one.


Liverpool have been sensational going forward this season, their rearguard has been the greater issue.

The Reds are creating 2.34 expected goals (xG) for per game on average this season, title winning numbers in the attacking third.

Liverpool have scored 34 from 39.7 xGF, still scoring an average of two goals per game, and Brighton’s somewhat gung ho style under Roberto De Zerbi should see them create plenty of goalscoring opportunities.

The Reds will be vulnerable without Van Dijk and the Seagulls have been in devastating attacking form, still strong in the season-long data, posting 1.81 xGF per game.

Alisson has been one of the best goalkeepers in the division yet again, but in terms of helping the Reds to overperform in the defensive third, he is a huge player in the Reds’ quest to finish in the top four.

It is a shame that this match has not been selected for television, it has a great chance of being played first on Match of the Day in the United Kingdom on Saturday evening.
