A Liverpool Win And Both Teams To Score Is The Best Bet For Final Day Fixture With Brighton
Liverpool now must be wary that despite all the plaudits they have consistently received throughout the year, mainly for the fluid attacking play, that their season still has a risk of imploding. A loss to Brighton & Hove Albion this Sunday, with a sufficient Chelsea win will see them drop out of the top four altogether. A draw might see them through due to a far superior goal difference, which would need an unprecedented and, let’s face it, nigh-on-impossible 15-goal swing.

This potentiality could however be dealt a further devastating blow by losing their European final to Real Madrid, which would remove the possibility of Champions League football for the Reds next season. With the fourth best home form in the Premier League- at the only team to not lose at their ground in the Premier League- they’re highly unlikely to slip. They’re as short as 1/6 to take the tie, virtually across the bookie board.
Whilst their performances in Europe have rightfully commanded attention; their recent domestic form has slipped considerably. They now have just one win in their last five, failing to score on three occasions in six and are on real danger of missing out off the top four altogether, having been nestled there for the majority of the season. Brighton have secured safety and have relatively little play for in this final game of the season, but Chris Hughton will want to end the season on a high, in anticipation for a likely difficult second season in the Premier League.
Both teams to score with a Liverpool win is best with William Hill at 17/10. Hills also offer 6/5 for over 2.5 goals and BTTS. Brighton have only failed to score once in their past six games, which included the memorable win at the AMEX Stadium against Manchester United. Pascal Gross has been outstanding all season for the Seagulls, having scored the second most goals for Brighton with seven, and has provided far and away the highest amount of assists. The German has also scored two in their last four games and is at 5/1 to score anytime against Liverpool with bet365.
For Liverpool, Mohamed Salah has been remarkably quiet of late and it in increasingly seems that when the Egyptian isn’t firing, then the rest of his team are fairly muted. Although he’s now in a fairly comfortable position to take the Golden Boot off Harry Kane anyway, he should get back on the scoresheet against the Seagulls. He is shortest at 2/1 (bet365) to open the scoring, and 1/2 with BoyleSports as an anytime goalscorer with a Liverpool win, which looks likely. Liverpool have only lost at home once this season in all competitions- a shock 3-2 to West Brom in the FA Cup, and for them to be leading after 15 minutes is at 27/10 with Ladbrokes.
With other results going their way, a win could take Brighton up and over Newcastle for a top-half finish for the best placed finish by a promoted team since West Ham in 2013.
