Liverpool Anticipate Key Returns as They Face Brighton in Title Pursuit

Liverpool is gearing up to maintain their Premier League title push as they prepare to take on Brighton.

Manager Jurgen Klopp is poised to welcome back two crucial first-team players for Brighton’s visit to Anfield on Sunday afternoon. With Manchester City and Arsenal fiercely competing against them in the Premier League title race, Liverpool understands the importance of having a full squad available.

Throughout the season, Klopp has had to cope with the absence of several key players, including Alisson Becker, Mohamed Salah, and Trent Alexander-Arnold. Of these players, only Salah is expected to be fit to play against Brighton, as injuries have plagued the team.

In a positive development for the Merseyside club, Ibrahima Konate is slated to return to action in central defense. The 24-year-old has been sidelined since Liverpool’s 5-1 victory over Sparta Prague on March 7th.

Konate recently featured for the France squad, playing the full 90 minutes in their 3-2 friendly triumph over Chile, showcasing his readiness to rejoin Liverpool’s ranks. While Jarell Quansah has admirably filled in alongside Virgil van Dijk during Konate’s absence, the young defender from Warrington is likely to make way for his more experienced teammate on Sunday.

Additionally, Curtis Jones is poised to make his comeback this weekend, as Klopp hinted that he is the most likely among the injured players to return. The midfielder has been sidelined for the past 10 matches since sustaining an injury in the victory over Brentford back in February.
