This Saturday, January 14, there is the promise of good soccer at the Amex Stadium: Brighton will host Liverpool for the 20th Premier League matchday. Jürgen Klopp’s team needs to win three points to get closer to the cup qualification places.
How Brighton and Liverpool arrive
Brighton started the year with a bang: on January 3 they beat Everton 4-1 away. Four days later they beat Middlesbrough 5-1 in the third round of the FA Cup.
Liverpool didn’t have a good start to 2023. In the resumption of the Premier League after the break for the World Cup, those led by Klopp fell 3-1 against Brentford. Last Saturday, the Reds drew 2-2 against Wolverhampton for the third round of the FA Cup.
In the run-up to this match, Uruguayan striker Darwin Núñez set off the alarms in the visiting box. The attacker suffered muscle discomfort in one of the last practices and arrives at this meeting without having trained alongside his teammates in the last sessions.
If Núñez does not play this Saturday at the Amex Stadium, he will surely start next Tuesday, January 17 for the second leg of the third round of the FA Cup against Wolverhampton since it is not a serious injury. It should be noted that Klopp has three weight losses, who are recovering from different injuries: Virgil van Dijk, Diogo Jota and Luis Díaz.
