Brighton will host Liverpool in an interesting match in Week 8 of the 2023/24 Premier League. This match will take place on Sunday afternoon, 8/10/2023 at the Amex stadium local time, where Brighton made a surprise by beating Man Utd 3-1 last September. However, since then, Brighton has experienced a decline in performance and fallen into crisis. Can they provide fierce resistance to Liverpool, a team that is at the peak of its glory as a war machine?
Brighton had an impressive start to the season picking up 10 points from the first 4 games, including a win at home to Man Utd. However, after that they experienced a slump and only added one more win from the last 5 matches, the rest were 3 defeats and one draw.
In their recent 2-2 draw against Marseille in the Europa League, Brighton showed weakness at the back when allowing Marseille to take a two-goal lead and had striker Maupay to thank who rescued a point for them. Currently, Brighton is in 9th place in the standings with 14 points.
Liverpool also had a good start to the season, winning 18 points from 7 matches, only two points behind Tottenham and Chelsea. They have beaten 8 opponents from the last 9 matches in all competitions, only losing to Tottenham 1-2 in the previous week in the Premier League.
However, the defeat to Tottenham was just an unexpected incident for Liverpool. They had to play with 10 men from the start and only conceded the second goal in the final minutes because of Matip’s mistake. If there were no wrong decisions from the referee, Liverpool might have gotten a different result.
In last midweek match against Union Saint-Gilloise from Belgium, coach Jurgen Klopp gave rest to many core players such as Van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Matip. But facing weak opponents, The Kop still controlled the game and achieved an easy victory. Currently, Liverpool is in third place in the standings with 18 points.
Regarding the experience of meeting the two teams, history was not very friendly to Brighton when they had to face Liverpool. Of the 23 previous meetings, Brighton only got 4 wins, the rest were 13 defeats to Liverpool. Of the last 5 meetings, Brighton also only drew once and lost four times.
The last meeting between the two teams took place on February 3 2023 at Anfield, where Liverpool achieved a landslide 4-0 victory thanks to goals from Salah, Nunez, Diaz and Henderson. The last meeting at home to Brighton also ended in a 2-0 win for Liverpool on November 28 2022.
With their current condition and strength, Liverpool is expected to be confident of winning over Brighton, even though the Reds will be without Thiago, Gakpo, Jones and Jota due to injury and suspension. Meanwhile, Brighton needs a miracle to stop the visitors’ winning streak.
