Our prediction for this Premier League match:
All eyes will be on Amex Stadium when Brighton and Liverpool go head to head in a highly-anticipated Premier League derby. The Seagulls aim to recover from an embarrassing 6-1 loss to Aston Villa and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field this time out. Summer signing Ansu Fati is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the last league match, while all Pascal Gross, Jakub Moder, James Milner, and Julio Enciso are out of contention with injuries.
The Reds, on the other hand, suffered an unlucky defeat at Tottenham on Matchday 7, with Joel Matip scoring a late own-goal to help Spurs pick up all three points from the match. As Jurgen Klopp’s troops are eager to return to winning ways as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Both Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota are banned for the visiting team, while Thiago Alcantara remains on the sidelines with a hip injury.
Highlighted Player (Mohamed Salah):
Mohamed Salah is considered one of the best African players. Salah began his senior career at El Mokawloon, scoring 11 goals in 41 league appearances for the club and in 2012 he moved to Europe, signing a four-year deal with Swiss side Basel.
The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a striker as well was producing outstanding displays for the RotBlau from 2012 to 2014 and, as a result, Chelsea chiefs decided to sign him on 26 January, 2015 for a fee of £11 million. Mohamed Salah, though, failed to impress in the Premier league and one year later he was sent on loan to Fiorentina.
After making 16 league appearances for the Viola in the Serie A, the left-footed winger signed a loan deal with Roma on 6 August, 2015. The Romans made the contract permanent on 3 August, 2016. Speaking of his international career, Salah made his Egypt debut on 3 September, 2011 in a 2-1 loss to Sierra Leone. It has to be noted that he was named Roma’s player of the season (2015/2016).
Highlighted Team (Brighton):
Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club were formed in 1901. The Seagulls welcome their opponents at Falmer Stadium and the capacity of Brighton’s home ground is 30,750. The stadium was built in 2008 and it was opened in 2011. The venue is known for commercial purposes as American Express Community Stadium.
Brighton & Hove Albion compete in the Premier League and they play in blue and white stripes. The colour of Brighton’s away kit is green. The club made it to the FA Cup final in 1983, but English giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils.
Brighton’s main rivals are Crystal Palace and the Seagulls have recorded 35 wins over the Eagles. Frank Stapleton, Martin Chivers, Joe Corrigan, Bobby Zamora, Mark Lawrenson, Bobby Smith, John Crumplin and Frank Worthington are notable footballers who played for Brighton in the past. The Albion is Preston’s yet another nickname.
