Could Liverpool's injury crisis be starting to show?

After swatting aside Leicester 3-0 last weekend, Jurgen Klopp’s side were sunk 2-0 at home by Atalanta in their mid-week Champions League tie.

The Premier League champions are still without a number of key men – including Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita and Virgil van Dijk – and boss Klopp has been a vocal critic of the packed schedule.

The Reds' boss is calling for the reintroduction of five substitutes, and is frustrated at having to field a team less than 72 hours after their Champions League defeat.

Liverpool go into the weekend level on points with Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the table, and a win tonight will put the pressure on Jose Mourinho’s men who travel to Chelsea – themselves just two points behind – on Sunday.

Striker Diogo Jota has hit the ground running since his summer arrival from Wolves, with eight goals in all competitions, and last weekend became the first man in Liverpool history to score in his first four home league games.

Jurgen Klopp's men are jaded. The Reds boss has been moaning about 12.30pm kick-offs, especially in away assignments after Champions League midweeks – and this is another for him to complain about.

Liverpool have won just one of four Premier League matches on their travels, were walloped 7-2 at Aston Villa – and are yet to score beyond the 73rd minute in all those matches. They have also netted the game's final goal in just one of the four.

Brighton, meanwhile, grabbed a win at Aston Villa last time out that their statistics hinted was coming.

They sit in the top half of the Premier League for metrics such as shots (112 – 8th), touches (6106 – 10th), passes (4492 – 10th), hitting the woodwork (six – 2nd), and big chances missed (ten – 6th).

And while they are still searching for a first home win of the season (D2, L2), they have dominated possession, goal attempts and corners in three of those four games.

So an upset home win at 17/4? Brighton have conceded three or more goals in five of their last eight home matches and Liverpool are 8/13 to bounce back from Wednesday's disappointment.
