Liverpool predicted line-up vs Brighton – Decisions made as Jurgen Klopp welcomes back key stars



Liverpool team news: The international break sees plenty of Liverpool players featuring but we’ve decided to look ahead to their next game against Brighton.


Liverpool’s last game before the international break was the heart-breaking 4-3 defeat at Old Trafford but there are plenty of big games to deal with after club football resumes.


A lot of players left to go and represent their country across the world but some, including key figures, remained in Liverpool to monitor their fitness and get ready for the business end of the season. Jurgen Klopp’s side don’t return to action until March 31, when they will face Roberto De Zerbi’s Brighton at Anfield as they hope to continue their title push. Ahead of that, we’ve decided to look at the predicted XI that Klopp could choose based off the latest injury news.

1. GK – Caoimhin Kelleher

The Irish keeper has been deputising for Alisson, who remains out.

2. RB – Conor Bradley

Conor Bradley returns to the Northern Ireland line-up against the backdrop of a stellar few months at Liverpool .

3. CB – Virgil van Dijk

The Liverpool skipper is with the Netherlands and it’s unclear how much of the two friendlies against Scotland and Germany he will play.

4. CB – Ibrahima Konate

The Frenchman had missed the last few games and while some were worried about his return, he has reported for international duty with France which suggests he will be ready to start in two weeks.

5. LB – Joe Gomez

The full-back is back in the England squad and will be ready to slot back into action at left-back for Liverpool ahead of Andy Robertson as he has been brilliant this season.

6. CM – Wataru Endo

Endo has a game five days before the Brighton game and should be ready to anchor the midfield again.

7. CM – Alexis Mac Allister

It’s unclear how much he’ll play in Argentina’s fixture but he’ll be ready to start. And he has been in exceptional form this season.

8. CM – Dominik Szoboszlai

The Hungarian will be back to start and he’s hugely important for Liverpool.

9. RW – Mohamed Salah

Salah hasn’t joined up with Egypt and will be ready to start at Anfield.

10. LW – Luis Diaz

He came off against United in the 114th minute but he has joined up with Colombia so he should be ready to return.

11. ST – Darwin Nunez

Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez sustained a hamstring issue after the FA Cup loss to Manchester United but he has not joined up with Uruguay and he will recover in Liverpool and should be available.
