Ex-Liverpool striker Michael Owen is expecting his former club to get back to winning ways when they play Brighton this afternoon.
The BT Sport pundit says the Reds haven’t been at their best in recent matches but he believes they will get back on the saddle by scoring a few goals at the Amex:
“Liverpool’s last couple of games haven’t seen them quite at their best. They got the win over West Ham but did concede a few chances in that game and on another day, could have drawn. The defeat to Inter on Tuesday was frustrating, mainly because they had more than enough chances to win that game. Liverpool are due a game in which they score a few goals, they are creating plenty of chances. I think that will come here.”
Owen has gone with a 3-1 victory to Liverpool, which is a rather generous prediction, to be honest with you. Jurgen Klopp’s side have only scored three goals in their last four matches and the Seagulls are a difficult team to play against.
While Graham Potter’s men have lost four consecutive games, they did come from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Anfield back in October. This is likely to be a fixture decided by the finest of margins.
If the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz can get their shooting boots on, though, they should still have enough to secure the three points.
