Both Brighton and Liverpool will still be reeling from their last weekend’s results, with the Seagulls getting thumped 6-1 by Villa and Liverpool having 2 men sent off and letting in a late goal to lose 2-1 to Spurs.

Despite these hiccups each side are still in the top half of the table and very much still in the title and European place race. Liverpool still start Premier League week 8 with 16 points and only 2 off the leaders, Man City, while Brighton have 15 points.

The sides clash at the American Express Stadium on Sunday.

Looking at the match betting, it’s tight with Brighton at 2.70 the Draw 3.80 and Liverpool at 2.30.

Last season Brighton took 4 points off Liverpool in the league and this repeat fixture ended in an easy 3-0 win for the home side, while the Seagulls also beat the Reds 2-1 at home in the FA Cup last term.

However, despite last season’s Brighton dominance over Liverpool, the Merseysiders still come into the game unbeaten in 19 of their last 22 vs the south coast side.

Other betting options to look out for are that both teams scored in 12 of the last 18 head-to-heads, which can be backed at 1.33, while over 2.5 goals has paid out in 15 of the last 20 meetings and is on the table at 1.36.

With 3 draws in the last 7 head-to-heads, this is another option @ 3.80 that is sure to be popular in a game that cases can be made for either side.

This will also be the first game back to Brighton for their World Cup winner – Alexis Mac Allister, who left for Liverpool in the summer, so he might appeal in the scoring markets @ 6.50 anytime or @ 19.00 for the first goal.

But it’s Liverpool’s Mo Salah that has had the best record in this face-off with 6 goals in the last 13 head-to-heads. He’s on the table at 6.00 first or 2.30 anytime and looks a decent option to improve on his 3 league goals this season.
