Match start: 16:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: The English Premier League.
In frames of the EPL round Brighton will host on home arena the leader of the season Liverpool.
The Seagulls are doing quite well recently, especially for the team from the second half of the tournament bracket, but this doesn’t bring them a lot of points. In five matches before the meeting with the Reds, Brighton has gained only one victory, two draws and two losses.
We should note the sticky defense of the Blue and Whites, which can overcome any attack in the EPL, but very often they are lacking in class and can’t cope with pressure, if it lasts for a prolonged period of time.
Liverpool, that is spending amazing season, couldn’t win last two matches, having lost to Manchester City in the championship and to Wolverhampton in the League Cup.
Both matches have finished with the similar score 1:2. This is the first wake-up call for the team of Jurgen Klopp and now the team can’t afford losing the points in matches with the underdogs and the mid level teams.
Man City is waiting in the wings and being the more experienced fighter in the champions race, may not forgive any mistake.
That is why, the team from Manchester will be playing for a victory but it will be hard as Brighton has an advantage of a home arena and will try to bite the favorite.
