Premier League actions finally return to Anfield today when Liverpool take on their first top-flight game in nearly one month. The time has come to celebrate 28 days since the Reds played an epic goalless derby draw against Merseyside rivals Everton as well as the death of the Queen Elizabeth II resulting in the postponement or cancellation of games in the clash with Wolves as well as Chelsea.
A break in international play quickly followed, so that the only other competition took place in the Champions League, where they finally won against Ajax after being crushed in Naples. Jurgen Klopp‘s Liverpool squad must now go into high gear at home following an unsatisfactory beginning to the season which led them to the weekend ranked eighth and nine points behind the pace set by the title.
They face Brighton, a Brighton team that is still suffering from the departure the their manager Graham Potter to Chelsea, and new manager Roberto De Zerbi hoping to bring back the feeling of joy when he takes over the first match as the head of the Seagulls which are in fourth.
