In goal, the summer signing from AS Roma, Alisson Becker is a certainty to start against Brighton on Saturday at Anfield. The Brazilian has looked calm and composed in both the opening matches of the premier league so far.

Defenders: Andrew Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander Arnold

Andrew Roberston

Robertson has gone from strength to strength to become a regular figure in Liverpool's starting lineup.

His understanding of when to go on the overlapping runs and when to fall back and defend has been the feature of his gameplay in the previous campaign as well as in both matches played so far. He will be rightfully taking his place in the left-back position for Liverpool against Brighton.

Virgil Van Dijk

Since arriving from Southampton for a record-breaking fee which made him the most expensive defender of all-time, Virgil van Dijk has completely turned the fortunes of Liverpool's back-line.He is a leader of men and his presence is of utmost importance especially for the Liverpool backline. Therefore, he will definitely start against West Ham United on Sunday.

Chester FC v Liverpool - Pre-Season Friendly

Joe Gomez is likely to retain his place against Brighton at Anfield following his good showing in both the matches for Liverpool. He will look to continue his good work when he plays against Brighton on Saturday.
