Liverpool v Brighton Premier League kick off time, TV channel, news
Roberto De Zerbi is set for a baptism of fire in the Premier League as his first game as Brighton boss comes against Liverpool on Saturday.
While the Reds have had a slow start to the season, their league form at Anfield – seven points from three games with 12 goals scored and just two conceded – has been outstanding and there were signs ahead of the international break that the tides could turn on the side of Jurgen Klopp.
The 2-1 win over Ajax in the Champions League brought not only a much improved performance but also the return of influential Thiago Alcantara, who is set to make his first Premier League appearance since taking over. limped off with a hamstring injury against Fulham on the opening day.
His return will give Liverpool a huge boost on Saturday, but it’s hard to know what to expect from the visitors who made a fantastic start to the season before losing manager Graham Potter to Chelsea earlier this month.
There is a lot of excitement about what De Zerbi can bring to the south coast club as Potter’s replacement and we will get our first glimpse of the Seagulls under his management this weekend.

Our prediction: Liverpool vs Brighton
It will be interesting to see how De Zerbi prepares his side against the Reds and if he strays from the system that has helped Brighton make such an impressive start to the season.
He’s preferred a 4-2-3-1 in the past, and that’s likely to be the setup he’ll choose if he’s looking to make changes for the trip to Anfield.
The Seagulls side are very confident and will be desperate to impress their new boss, but it’s hard to underestimate the importance of Thiago’s return to Liverpool and that fact should be illustrated with three points on Saturday.
Our prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Brighton (2/17 at bet365)
