Premier League - Watch Brighton vs Liverpool on NBC Sports Live

What has been Brighton and Liverpool's form ahead of this match?

Brighton's performance this season has not been what their fans expected, especially in terms of winning consecutive games. The Seagulls have drawn two out of their last three, and to make matters worse, they have only won once in their last six outings. Speaking of home games, Brighton has only lost two EPL matches at home, both of them with a 2-1 score (against Tottenham and Chelsea).

Liverpool enter this game having lost their two most recent games, both of them with 2-1 scores against Manchester City (EPL) and Wolverhampton (FA Cup). If Klopp's men don't want things to get tricky in the next few months, they will need to do everything in their power to avoid losing their current four-point difference at the top of the English top flight.

What is the current position of Brighton and Liverpool in the English Premier League?

Brighton gets to this match in 13th place of the English Premier League. Chris Hughton's men have lost more games than those they have won (seven won, nine lost), with five draws completing their tally. The Seagulls have scored 24 goals and have conceded 29 in their 21 EPL games.

Despite being handed their first loss of the season by Manchester City, Liverpool is still at the top of the English top flight. Most of their success has been based on their defensive prowess, since Klopp's men have only allowed ten goals in 21 outings. Their 49-goal tally has also done wonders for their intentions of winning their first Premier League title in history.
