Liverpool vs Brighton live score, updates, result, stats, lineups from Premier League match at Anfield

Liverpool host Brighton & Hove Albion on March 31 knowing they could have the opportunity to move top of the Premier League for the start of April.

The Reds saw their hopes of a quadruple end prior to the international break after losing a seven-goal thriller to Manchester United in the FA Cup.

They began this matchweek in second place in the league but behind Arsenal on goal difference only. Should they take all three points against Brighton and the Gunners fail to defeat Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp’s side will sit top of the standings heading into next week.

Brighton could use a positive result if they are to maintain their challenge for the European places, with Roberto De Zerbi’s men having only won two league games in the whole of 2024.

Team news

Andrew Robertson is OUT for Liverpool today, so Joe Gomez and Jarell Quansah start, with Ibrahima Konate on the bench. Otherwise, the team is largely as expected.

Brighton appear to be going with a back three, while Jakub Moder starts in attack alongside Simon Adingra and Danny Welbeck.

1 hour 30 mins before kickoff: This is potentially a huge day in the title race, but Liverpool will only enjoy it if they can do something they haven’t done since November 2019: beat Brighton at home. In fact, Jurgen Klopp’s side have only managed one victory in the past eight meetings with the Seagulls in all competitions.

2 hours before kickoff: With Manchester City and Arsenal meeting later, can Liverpool apply a bit of pressure in the Premier League title race? We’ll find out soon enough.
