Could Liverpool’s injury crisis start?
After beating Leicester 3-0 last weekend, Jürgen Klopp’s side lost 2-0 at home to Atalanta in the midweek Champions League match.
The Premier League champions are still without a number of key players – including Trent Alexander Arnold, Naby Keita and Virgil van Dijk – and the coach Klopp has been a vocal critic of the busy schedule.
The Reds coach is demanding the reinstatement of five substitutes, and is frustrated by having to sign a team less than 72 hours after they were defeated in the Champions League.
Liverpool go to their weekend level with points with Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the table, and their win tonight will put pressure on Jose Mourinho’s men who travel to Chelsea – just two points behind – on Sunday.
Striker Diogo Jota has arrived on Earth since his summer arrival from Wolverhampton, with eight goals in all competitions, and last weekend became the first man in Liverpool’s history to score in the first four matches at home in the league.

Disagreement between Brighton and Liverpool
Jürgen Klopp’s men are nervous. The Reds coach was moaning at around 12:30 p.m., especially on overseas assignments after mid-Champions League – that’s another thing he has to complain about.
Liverpool have won only one of four Premier League matches in their travels, losing 7-2 at Aston Villa – and yet to score after the 73rd minute in all of those matches. They also scored the final goal of the match in only one of the four goals.
Meanwhile, Brighton scored a win over Aston Villa the last time their stats indicated it was coming.
They sit in the top half of the Premier League for metrics such as shots (112-8), touches (6106-10), passes (4492-10), wooden strikes (six-second place), and big missed chances (ten-sixth).
While still looking for their first home win this season (D2, L2), they dominated possession, goal-scoring attempts and corner kicks in three of those four matches.
