Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction at Brighton & Hove Albion

Liverpool FC head to Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday for what will be the all time 29th meeting between the two clubs. As you might expect, it’s a series that the Merseysiders have owned, winning 16 while losing only four times, with eight draws.

The Reds come into this one having just crashed out of the FA Cup on Monday night and looking to get back on the winning track. Liverpool know that they can’t afford to be dropping any points, especially in games like this where they are heavily favored. Manchester City is just four points back now in the league title race.

Let’s take a look at who Jurgen Klopp may start in his first team for this one. He has a crisis in central defense to deal with, and apparently he believes the short term answer is to slot the midfielder he acquired from Monaco in the summer at that position.

  1. N. Keita should start instead of J.Henderson

  2. Hendo should not start instead Keita should start because he’s better than Henderson. Coach please don’t change the winning team. Nas.
