Prediction

Brighton have been in terrific form as of late and should provide a stern test for a Liverpool side who have unsurprisingly lost some of their edge since securing the title. However, with Klopp keen to reinvigorate his players and the 100-point barrier in sight, their quality should eventually shine through in a close-fought encounter.

Brighton 1-2 Liverpool
