Jürgen Klopp said in his press conference that. “The last game against Brighton is still the worst game I have ever seen.” Now the Reds with get a chance for revenge as they face the same Seagull club that soundly defeated Liverpool 3-0 on January 14th in FA Cup action on Sunday, January 29th.

Taking Small Steps

Since that to Brighton, Liverpool have enjoyed a better run of play over their last two matches. After a draw with Chelsea, Klopp says that the club is taking small but important steps toward improving the mistakes that have plagued them all season. The introduction of Stefan Bajcetic, who recently signed a contract extension, into the midfield has given the team a spark. The defence also seems to be rounding into form, posting consecutive clean sheets for just the second time all season. Let's hope those trends continue.

Bright Play From The Seagulls

They have not lost in their four competitive matches of , scoring 11 goals in the process. The Liverpool defence will have to be stout once again to claim victory on the coast.

An Advantage For The Reds?

It is no secret that Liverpool is the defending champions. The question is will that work to the Reds' advantage as they advance deeper in the competition?

“Being cup holders, I don't think it's [a] massive advantage in the competition. We start completely new. We know how great the event is if you arrive at the final, so that's helpful,” Klopp said.
