Liverpool travelled to Falmer Stadium on Saturday to play Brighton and Hove Albion. Liverpool won their most recent game against Stoke City, and was looking to move up the Premier League table to fourth place. Brighton and Hove Albion were looking to stay in the mid table of the English league. Liverpool’s manager Klopp had a centre back dilemma since Matip had a hip injury, and Gomez and Klavan were down with colds.
