Liverpool injury, suspension list vs. Brighton & Hove Albion

Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday night's Premier League showdown with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The next stop on Liverpool's Premier League victory tour will be the Amex Stadium on Wednesday night as the champions take on Brighton & Hove Albion.

Jurgen Klopp's side picked up their first win since being crowned champions with a hard-fought 2-0 triumph over Aston Villa on Sunday, but they come into this one in poor form away from home.

The Reds have failed to score in five successive away games for the first time since 1992, and take on a Brighton side in decent form as they continue to edge themselves away from relegation.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
