Liverpool face Manchester City next, at home on Sunday, and Pep Guardiola’s side have just restored their three-point lead at the top of the Premier League. A 2-0 win at Burnley takes City seven points clear of fourth-placed Liverpool having played the same number of games ahead of this match.
But Brighton also won at the weekend, dealing Spurs a swift second blow. And the Seagulls held Liverpool in the reverse fixture as a 93rd-minute penalty denied the Reds on the south coast.
Reigning champions Liverpool are looking for a third straight victory in the top flight after responding in style to a five-match winless stretch by beating Tottenham and West Ham away from home last week.
