Liverpool vs Brighton & Hove Albion Betting Tip

Liverpool’s Champions League qualification comes down to two games; if Liverpool lose to Brighton on Sunday and Chelsea win their game against Newcastle United, then Liverpool would need to win the Champions League Final against Real Madrid to qualify for the competition next season. Jurgen Klopp’s side have looked extremely tired in their last few league games, with their European heroics taking centre stage, but after a week off, this Liverpool side should be well prepared.

Liverpool

liverpoolLiverpool have struggled in recent weeks and last weekend’s defeat to Chelsea, made it just one win in the last five games for Klopp’s side. These Liverpool players know exactly what they have to do though and following Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town on Wednesday night, Klopp knows that if Liverpool avoid defeat on Sunday, then they will finish in the top four and qualify for next season’s Champions League. Liverpool suffered another injury blow this week, with Joe Gomez undergoing an ankle surgery which will keep him out for the rest of the season. Gomez joins Joel Matip, Emre Can, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana on the treatment table.

Brighton & Hove Albion

brighton hove albionBrighton secured their safety with a 1-0 victory against Manchester United last week and they certainly looked like a side who have started winding down for the summer during their 3-1 defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday night. Chris Hughton has done a superb job to keep this side in the Premier League and he will be looking to upset the odds and go out with a bang on Sunday. Steve Sidwell and Izzy Brown are the only injury doubts for Brighton heading into the final game of the season.

Talking Points

  1. Liverpool are unbeaten at Anfield this season, winning 11 of their 18 games in front of The Kop.
  2. Conversely, only Stoke City have a worse away record than Brighton this season; Chris Hughton’s side have picked up just two wins on the road.
  3. Mohamed Salah leads the scoring charts with 31 goals in the Premier League and the Egyptian will be aiming to fend off Harry Kane (28) to win the award.

Liverpool vs Brighton & Hove Albion Prediction

When you consider the facts; Liverpool are unbeaten at home all season, Brighton have the second worst away record in the league, Liverpool won the reverse fixture 5-1 and Brighton have nothing left to play for, then you have to feel that Liverpool will win. You never know in football though and there are sure to be plenty of final day nerves in the stands at Anfield on Sunday. I do think Liverpool will win here though and after a full week of rest, they should have enough energy in their legs to blow Brighton away on Sunday and seal their Champions League qualification.

Liverpool start this game as huge favourites at odds of 1,167 whilst an unlikely away victory for Brighton is available at 17, with the draw priced up at 7,5.
