Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Brighton & Hove Albion

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

Liverpool will endeavour to secure their fifth win in a row across all tournaments when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Reds made history with their remarkable 5-0 thrashing of Manchester United last weekend, with Mohamed Salah bagging a hat-trick while Naby Keita and Diogo Jota also got in on the act.

Jurgen Klopp's side sit second in the table - one point behind leaders Chelsea - as a result, and they eased to a 2-0 success over Preston North End to advance to the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup in midweek.

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