James Milner On Bench - Liverpool Team vs Brighton Confirmed

James Milner On Bench - Liverpool Team vs Brighton Confirmed

Robertson has been phenomenal all season and is a guaranteed starter, if fit, but the Scottish global has to be used wisely when the games come thick and fast over the coming months, and it's the left-back area that could see Liverpool's vulnerability exploited, if they don't delve into the transfer market.

The Reds will also be without Dejan Lovren on the south coast with the Croatian suffering from a hamstring problem, while Joël Matip is still recovering from a broken collarbone.

Brighton & Hove Albion hosts Liverpool in a Premier League fixture on Saturday, Jan. 12.

The Reds are coming off back-to-back defeat, having lost to Manchester City in its most recent Premier League game and fallen to Wolves in the FA Cup. Joe Gomez is missing until February due to a leg fracture sustained at Burnley last month.

He said: I saw them as two separate (Man City and Wolves).

He told The Argus: "Sometimes you gauge how good the top are by how numerous bottom ten are going to get results against the top six teams".

What Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Manchester United players in Christmas party address
Chris Smalling and Jan Vertonghen are likely to miss this match through injury, while Eric Bailly remains suspended, limiting the centre-back options.

"We are fine. A season is always like this".

"Let's play football. Nothing else".

"Hopefully we don't have a lot of normal weeks because we want to stay in the CL as long as possible".

With all three centre-backs out, Fabinho will now have to step into the centre-half role in a partnership with Van Dijk. "We speak in the week, but try to not make it more complicated than it is".

Jurgen Klopp is expected to make a number of changes from defeat at Molineux, with the usual attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane set to return.
