Michael Owen states his prediction for Liverpool FC v Brighton


After making his debut against Manchester United in the 3-2 win, Brighton and Hove Albion defender Leon Balogun has revealed that he expected Jose Mourinho's charges to be quicker. "Who scores the goals is not too important but it was very important for us and very nice for him that he could do it in the last game".

Mane has made an electirfying start to the season as Liverpool's lethal attacking trident of the Senegalese, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah picked up where they left of last season.

"It's quality. We have to make sure we can show that every week".

"I think what it's also done is it allows us to go to Liverpool with three points". It's perhaps quite daunting, if you've lost your first two games and your next game is Liverpool.

'We have a very odd 4-5-1 formation with Sadio as a midfielder, Bobby [Roberto Firmino] being a midfielder more or less and Mo [Salah] being a striker, even though he plays in a little different position'.

Jurgen Klopp's side are the only top flight team not to have conceded a goal in their opening two matches, and Monday's 2-0 win at Crystal Palace was an example of how their new-found resilience is paying off.

"It's different in competitive matches, in the first goal Romelu Lukaku was my man and I didn't pick him up during the second phase of play - the ball got deflected and I didn't anticipate - these are the challenges that I still have to get used to".

Liverpool take on Brighton at Anfield in the late Saturday kick off in the Premier League.

Hughton says, however, he is not overly concerned by his side's away form. How can we get a performance?

"I think when you're playing against the top six, you're generally the underdogs", he said.

"A fantastic win for Brighton against a largely out-of-sorts Manchester United at the Amex on Sunday, but they will find the pace, energy and quality of Jurgen Klopp's Reds a different proposition at Anfield", Owen told BetVictor.

"We know it's going to be hard, but we're going to try everything to get something from the game".

"That's the challenge for us. We need to improve away from home".
