Before the clash between Manchester City and Arsenal unfolds, Liverpool will look to temporarily ascend to the summit of the Premier League table when they entertain the European-chasing Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool vs Brighton Hove & Albion Betting Tips: BTTS

Despite being just minutes away from securing a spot in the semifinals of the oldest football competition on the planet, Liverpool was forced into extra time after conceding a late equalizer in regular time, but even there, luck was not on their side as they suffered a tragic 3-4 loss to Manchester United, despite holding a slim lead in the final 15 minutes.

To make matters worse, Jurgen Klopp's chosen ones experienced another blow before their FA Cup quarterfinal exit at Old Trafford, slipping from the top of the English top-flight after sharing points in a contentious 1-1 stalemate against Manchester City, yet staying in second place just behind leaders Arsenal based on goal difference.

The wounds inflicted by a pair of heartbreaking results have had time to heal during the two-week international break, with injury-plagued Liverpool now turning its attention solely to league duties, where they have a favorable opportunity to reclaim the driving seat in the Premier League table if Arsenal stumbles at the Etihad.

Just a pair of victories away from hitting the magical 300 mark of competitive triumphs as the helm of the Red Merseysiders, Jurgen Klopp will be craving to notch that achievement as soon as possible to provide his squad with a vital boost in the heated title chase, but it looks like he'll need to roll up his sleeves to engineer a winning result, considering their recent tussles with the Seagulls haven't yielded much joy, managing only one victory in the past seven H2H meetings.

Furthermore, Brighton arrives at Anfield with newfound zest they gained just before the international two-week break, having achieved consecutive triumphs, first an own goal gave them a 1-0 victory over relegation-threatened Forest, and then replicated the same scoreline against AS Roma, although it was insufficient to overturn the mountainous four-goal deficit from the first leg.

After drawing an early curtain on their European tale, the Seagulls will now lay all their cards on the domestic table, hoping to board the ship bound for UEFA competitions, yet it will be an uphill battle to erase the 11-point deficit behind Spurs in fifth, especially as they've been poor travelers in their recent excursions, succumbing to defeat in five of their last six road matches in any format.

If anyone holds the secret recipe to trouble the Reds, it's certainly the Italian tactician Roberto De Zerbi, whose track record against Liverpool is nothing short of impressive, guiding his men to two victories and as many draws, one of which came in the reverse October fixture, when the points were evenly split in an intriguing four-goal stalemate.

Even more fascinatingly, Brighton has showcased an incredible knack for breaching the Merseysiders' defense, putting a exceptional 10 goals past Alisson in their last four meetings, leaving them confident to continue their trend of tormenting the Reds' net. However, conscious of their prospects to rapidly reclaim the peak of the EPL standings, even while hindered by injuries, Liverpool could showcase superiority in what is set to be an electrifying, goal-filled affair.

Liverpool team news

The top-choice goalkeeper Alisson will be sidelined until at least mid-April as he is yet to fully recover from a hamstring injury, meaning that the Irish shot-stopper Caoimhín Kelleher will notch up his 11th appearance between the sticks and 23rd overall this season.

The Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez was absent from the March international matches due to injury, but there's a chance he could be fit for the Sunday EPL clash against Brighton, while Andrew Robertson will undergo assessment after being subbed off in the 36th minute against Northern Ireland on international duty due to injury.

As for the Seagulls, they embark on the journey to Anfield without the services of wonderkid Jack Hinshelwood, key wing duo Kaoru Mitoma and Solly March, all ruled out of the Sunday showdown due to injuries.

The absence of Brazilian striker Joao Pedro, who has brilliantly spearheaded Brighton's attack with 8 goals this season, has been keenly felt since early February due to a hamstring injury, yet he finds himself in a promising position to make his comeback for the trip to Liverpool.
