2019/20 Premier League

American Express Community Stadium
Brighton and Hove, England
Wednesday, 08 July 2020
Brighton and Hove Albion will face Liverpool FC
in an English Premier League
match at the American Express Community Stadium on July 08.
This will be the sixth meeting between the two teams in the Premier League era.
Liverpool have dominated this fixture having recorded six wins and Brighton will be keen to secure their maiden victory over the Reds.
The last league meeting between the two teams was on 30 November 2019.
Liverpool secured a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Brighton in an encounter that was played at the Anfield Stadium.
Graham Potter, the Brighton manager, says it is important for his side to perform well in the league in order to retain their status in the elite league.

“It’s always about the next game, in this league you can’t pick out matches as being easier than others,” Potter said.
“We just have to keep putting all of our resources into each match and, once that’s played, we move onto the next one.
“We’ve increased the gap between ourselves and the bottom three since the start of lockdown and we want to maintain that upwards momentum.”
Meanwhile, Brighton suffered a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Manchester United in their last home match in the league on June 30.
The Seagulls have been inconsistent at home having recorded two defeats, two draws and one win in their last five games as hosts.
On the other hand, Liverpool succumbed to an embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Manchester City in their last away match in the league on July 02.
As a result, the Reds are winless in their last three away matches having registered two defeats and one draw.
