Match: Liverpool vs Brighton Competition: England – Premier League Time / Date: 17:00h / 13 May 2018 Venue: Anfield Stadium
With Chelsea hot on their tails, the ‘Reds’ need a win or draw to render Chelsea’s result meaningless. No matter what, Liverpool will have an additional chance of making the CL next season by winning it on May 26. However, Jurgen Klopp is still lamenting his side’s 1-0 loss to their chasers Chelsea (fifth) in their last game, which took Liverpool’s winless run to three games.
Brighton have guaranteed their top-flight safety and will look to end the campaign on a high. With nothing to play for, they can play without pressure, though come into Sunday’s trip to Anfield on the back of a 12-match away winless run.
