Brighton come into this game with a four-point lead over Liverpool, last season’s runners-up.
But after Chelsea appointed Graham Potter, a new era begins for the south coast club with Roberto De Zerbi taking charge of his first match this weekend.
Already with a win at Old Trafford this term, confidence should be sky-high in the Brighton camp, while Liverpool welcome back several first-team players.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
There have been three or more goals in four of Liverpool’s six league matches. It’s three of six for Brighton. Liverpool also saw over 2.5 hit in both of their Champions League matches.
For all their issues this term, Liverpool are still third in expected goals. Brighton are comfortably in the top half, and should be able to create chances against a Liverpool side which has looked short on confidence at the back.
Bettors can feel very confident in over 2.5 here.
Total Cards: Under 2.5
This might seem like a low line for the total cards, but there’s good reason for that.
Brighton have received the third-fewest cards in 2022-23. Liverpool are one of the two teams to have been shown fewer cards.
Andy Madley takes charge of this fixture. The referee was dead-last in yellows shown per game in 2021-22 among all Premier League referees at just 2.25.
Neither team will even give him much opportunity to brandish cards here, as they both rank in the bottom six in tackles per game.
Total Corners: Under 10.5
Brighton’s matches average a total of 6.8 corners, the second-lowest mark in the Premier League this season. Liverpool’s number of 8.5 (both teams combined) is below the average for the league as a whole.
Three of the last four matches between these sides have gone under 10.5 total corners.
The 10/11 price on that to become four of five is a great value wager.
