Brighton vs Liverpool Prediction: FA Cup | 29.01.2023

There will be an exciting fourth round tie in the FA Cup on Sunday, as Liverpool look to respond to the 3-0 loss suffered at the hands of Brighton in the Premier League just a few weeks ago. However, the Seagulls will be looking to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup for just the second time in four seasons.


FA Cup Preview

Liverpool continue to find themselves in a tough spot this season, as they have fallen further away from the Champions League spots in recent weeks. However, the Reds could yet end the campaign with a piece of silverware. Liverpool ended their long wait for success in the FA Cup last term with a penalty shootout win over Chelsea, and Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side’s grip on the prestigious honour isn’t gone after this weekend.

The Reds needed a replay to see off Wolves in the previous round, as the two Premier League sides played out a 2-2 draw in the first meeting at Anfield. However, Liverpool produced one of their more professional displays on the road in the replay, with Harvey Elliott scoring the only goal in the game after just 13 minutes.

Brighton has enjoyed an excellent season to this point, as they sit sixth in the Premier League standings. Their form couldn’t be stronger coming into this fixture, as they have won two of their previous three matches. However, their only solid run in the FA Cup in the past ten years came in the 2018-19 season, as they reached the semi-final stage for the first time since 1983. 

The Seagulls were excellent in the third round of the competition, as they breezed past Championship high-flyers Middlesbrough 5-1. Alexis Mac Allister scored twice in that success, while further goals were added by Adam Lallana, Pascal Gross, and Deniz Undav.

Brighton vs Liverpool Head to Head 

Liverpool has won just once in the previous six meetings between the sides, but that win did come at the Amex in March 2022. However, the Reds were hammered on their previous visit, with Brighton running out 3-0 winners on January 14.

Brighton vs Liverpool Prediction

A lot of emphases will be put on the FA Cup by Liverpool in the second half of the season, as it is likely their best chance of a trophy. We can see the Reds responding from their heavy defeat a few weeks ago by picking up a 3-1 win on Sunday.
