What is the team news?


Brighton defender Bernardo has been ruled out of Saturday’s clash.

The left-back picked up a hamstring injury in the top-flight clash with West Ham on January 2, with Gaetan Bong set to deputise.

Goalkeeper Mat Ryan and winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh remain unavailable as they are on international duty at the Asian Cup, while Jose Izquierdo continues to recover from a knee injury.

Provisional squad: Steele, Button, Montoya, Suttner, Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Burn, Balogun, Bong, Stephens, Kayal, Bissouma, Propper, Gross, March, Knockaert, Murray, Locadia, Andone.


Liverpool centre-back Joel Matip has a chance of being fit for the trip to Brighton after returning to training this week.

The German has missed the last six matches with a broken collarbone but his comeback is timely with Dejan Lovren ruled out for at least a fortnight with a hamstring problem.

Adam Lallana (muscle) and Joe Gomez (foot) are both still sidelined but Jordan Henderson is back in training after a calf problem kept him out of the FA Cup defeat at Wolves.

Provisional squad: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Matip, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri, Firmino, Mane, Salah, Mignolet, Camacho, Moreno, Milner, Henderson, Keita, Sturridge, Origi.
