Brighton V Liverpool at The American Express Community Stadium : Match Preview

01 December 2017
Brighton's Gaetan Bong could return to face Liverpool

Brighton expect to have left-back Gaetan Bong available again following a knee problem for the visit of Liverpool.

Seagulls boss Chris Hughton reported no fresh injury worries after the midweek goalless draw with Crystal Palace.

Midfielder Steve Sidwell remains sidelined by a back problem, but is stepping up his rehabilitation programme.

Liverpool are set to be without Joel Matip.

The defender suffered a muscle problem at the end of the midweek victory over Stoke but Ragnar Klavan is expected to have recovered from illness and could step in.

Top scorer Mohamed Salah could come back into the starting line-up after scoring twice more as a substitute against the Potters but Adam Lallana (thigh) remains unavailable.
