What Trueform says for Liverpool vs Brighton
Brighton achieved a high Trueform rating for their surprise win over Manchester United but Albion’s away form makes them hard to back at Liverpool.
The Reds have started the new season strongly and our chart also features a 4-0 Anfield triumph over the Seagulls from the end of last term.
We can’t see past a home win to nil at 91/100 for our first Liverpool vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool followed up a 4-0 drubbing of West Ham at this venue with a hard-fought 2-0 success at Crystal Palace.
Jurgen Klopp’s side enjoyed some good fortune when Mohamed Salah was awarded a soft penalty, which James Milner converted.
However, they took full advantage by defending resiliently before Sadio Mane wrapped up the victory with a late breakaway goal.
Liverpool’s new-look central defensive partnership of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk were excellent, while summer signings Alisson and Naby Keita have also made them stronger.
Van Dijk told the club website: “We know how difficult it is to come here, so to win and keep a clean sheet as well, I’m a very happy man.
“We had very good moments but also moments that need to be better, especially in ball possession, but overall we need to be very happy that we won here.”
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton were definitely worthy winners when beating United 3-2, with Glenn Murray, Shane Duffy and Pascal Gross all on target in an impressive first-half performance.
Murray said: “People ask us if we can better last year and obviously it’s natural that we want to do that, but the main thing is to stay in the Premier League and keep the club moving forward with the right momentum.
“I think we have a lot more strength in depth. We have probably got more belief as well.”
However, Albion struggled on the road last season, with no team scoring fewer away goals, and they started this term with a 2-0 loss at Watford.
Albion only netted once when visiting the top-six teams, with no points picked up, and we fear another tough evening is in store on Merseyside.
Let’s finish off our Liverpool vs Brighton betting tips by taking 5/4 for the Reds to win by more than two clear goals, as it was 9-1 over both meetings last season.
Crystal Palace 0-2 LIVERPOOL – James Milner (pen), Sadio Mane
BRIGHTON 3-2 Man Utd – Glenn Murray, Shane Duffy, Pascal Gross (pen)
Head-to-head: Liverpool 4-0 Brighton, Brighton 1-5 Liverpool
