Liverpool team news vs Brighton: Fabinho and Roberto Firmino

Roberto Firmino

It is a great time to be a Liverpool fan. Expectations have hit the roof so also is the performance of the team. The team remains the only club in the league that has not conceded a goal after two matches in the top flight.

Their opponents have been dispatched with vim and vigour. Their last opponent Crystal Palace were a much tougher opponent than the first but the team still came through.

Liverpool brought in players to bolster the team and to improve their league standing. Some of them have not featured for the first team because their bed in process is taking longer.

Fabinho falls under this category of new players that have not featured this term. He was an unused substitute in the first match but was missing in the second match.

Some analyst believe that Klopp will play him in the match against Brighton this weekend because he is fit and ready to make his debut at the Kop.

In another news, Firmino was seen training alongside Gini outside the group. The Brazilian looks to be lacking sharpness and drive that made him so lethal last year. This can perhaps be attributed to rustiness given that he rarely featured at the World Cup.

Firmino is a top attacker and full of energy. A little rest and continuous practice to regain his sharpness might uplift him. In his place Sturridge can step in and do equal damage against visiting Brighton and Hove Albion.

A team currently brimming with confidence buoyed by that immeasurable win against Manchester United will hope to cause similar upset at the Merseyside.
