Brighton vs Liverpool live stream: match preview

The teams are in and Brighton have named a strong team, with Kaoru Mitoma, Evan Ferguson, Pascal Gross and Solly March all starting. Boss Roberto De Zerbi recalls Adam Webster, Tariq Lamptey and cup keeper Jason Steele in goal. Arsenal target Moises Caicedo, however, has been left out of the matchday squad entirely as he holds out for a big-money move to the Gunners. Liverpool also with a strong XI as they make one change from the side that drew 0-0 with Chelsea last week with Trent Alexander-Arnold fit again to start ahead of James Milner at right-back. Mo Salah, Thiago Alcantara, Cody Gakpo and youngsters Harvey Elliott and Stefan Bajcetic all start, with Darwin Nunez on the bench. 

In their last home game, Brighton not only beat Liverpool, they took them to the cleaners, put them on a hot wash and shrank them to a barely recognisable imitation. "Bad, really bad," was Jurgen Klopp's assessment of his side's 3-0 defeat to the Seagulls a fortnight ago. 

While other teams treat the world's oldest cup competition as a chance to give minutes to squad players, Brighton boss De Zerbi seems intent on using it as an opportunity for his team, currently sat sixth in the Premier League, to go all out for the most prestigious piece of silverware in the club's history. They've scored 14 goals in their last four games in all competitions, with Kaoru Mitoma and youngster Evan Ferguson excelling up front and winger Solly March in the form of his life.

Liverpool's issues this season show no signs of abating. Tenth in the Premier League, the Reds' gegenpress seems to have worn out with a midfield that is struggling to live up to past campaigns, with Fabinho and Jordan Henderson unable to match previous excellence. Cody Gakpo has yet to catch light since his arrival from PSV, Mo Salah is also yet reach his best form and record signing Darwin Nunez is highly watchable but inconsistent. Expect cup keeper Caoimhin Kelleher to start in goal.
