Liverpool: With two consecutive victories over Spurs and West Ham, Klopp's side is somewhat back on track in their bid to successfully defend their Premier League title. Liverpool will need City or United, particularly the former, to drop points if they are to overtake Pep Guardiola's men with a win when they meet this weekend, but three points here will keep the pressure on. The arrivals of Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies have boosted Klopp's defensive options after losing Joel Matip for the remainder of the season through injury.
Brighton: The Seagulls completed the drawn-out signing of Moises Caicedo and the Ecuador international will boost Graham Potter's options as they look to make it four matches unbeaten in the league. Wins over Leeds United and Spurs give them a seven-point advantage over Fulham in the bottom three and Burnley, Newcastle and Wolves all remain within reach for Brighton. Their draw back in November will give them belief that they can take another point here.
Liverpool to see Brighton off easily enough to set up the big clash with City this coming weekend. Pick: Liverpool 2, Brighton 0.
