Four weeks have passed since Liverpool and Brighton were last in action in the Premier League, and both clubs may be grateful for the postponements. The Reds have had plenty to work on on the training pitch, having won just two of their opening six league fixtures. Brighton, meanwhile, are under new management, and at long last, the Roberto De Zerbi era gets up and running today. Read on to find out how to watch a Liverpool vs Brighton live stream and catch the Premier League online, no matter where you are.
Jürgen Klopp has left Diogo Jota, Luis Díaz and Darwin Núñez on the bench, with Roberto Firmino and Fábio Carvalho instead selected to play alongside Mohamed Salah. It's a bold call from the Liverpool manager, who's also left out Harvey Elliott. Jordan Henderson takes his place.
De Zerbi hasn't changed much, with Pervis Estupinan returning to the starting lineup in place of former Liverpool man Adam Llallana in the only alteration to the side that took to the pitch against Leicester last month. Even with a victory Brighton will stay 4th, but they'll be one point behind Tottenham with a game in hand.
The Seagulls faithful were on top of the world when Alexis Mac Allister sealed that 5-2 win over the Foxes. Nobody could have guessed what would happen next.
Chelsea promptly poached Graham Potter and his entire coaching team, and De Zerbi was quickly ushered in as his replacement. The Italian forged a reputation for attacking football in his previous stints in charge of Benevento, Sassuolo and Shakhtar Donetsk, and fans will be hoping that the unexpected break has given him a chance to stamp his authority on a team that looked capable of achieving extraordinary things under his predecessor.
Liverpool, who are four points and four places behind their opponents, got back to winning ways against Ajax two and a half weeks ago, but there's still a sense of unease around the Reds. With Firmino, Díaz, Jota, Carvalho and Núñez all seemingly in competition for the same place, it appears that Klopp is still trying to work out what his best team is.
