    Team news – Liverpool

    Jurgen Klopp makes FOUR changes from the side who beat relegation-threatened Aston Villa at Anfield.

    Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino return to the starting XI having been rested/rotated last week. They replace Sadio Mane, Fabinho and Divock Origi.

    There’s also a start for teenager Neco Williams. The 19-year-old has quite the growing reputation and is rewarded with a spot ahead of Andrew Robertson.

    I believe he’s naturally a right-back, but displacing a lad named Trent Alexander-Arnold has proved a little bit tricky.

    Team news – Brighton

    Graham Potter makes three changes from the nervy, edgy and slightly boring win over Norwich.

    Alexis Mac Allister, Dale Stephens and Pascal Gross start in place of Yves Bissouma, Aaron Mooy and Aaron Connolly, who all drop to the bench.

    Starting XI

    The team news arrives at exactly 7.01pm. I see Neco Williams has been included in the starting XI. Fully deserved, I like this kid.

    Brighton XI: Ryan, Lamptey, Webster, Dunk, Burn, Propper, Mac Allister, Stephens, Gross, Trossard, Maupay.

    Subs: Button, Duffy, Bissouma, Jahanbakhsh, Murray, Mooy, Montoya, Bernardo, Connolly.

    Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Williams, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Keita, Salah, Firmino.

    Subs: Adrian, Fabinho, Milner, Mane, Minamino, Robertson, Origi, Jones, Elliott.

    The latest

    There are three 6pm fixtures happening right now. There’s another dead rubber going on between Manchester City and Newcastle, who are playing for what feels like the 500th time this season.

    Pep Guardiola’s side lead the Toon 2-0 thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus and Riyad Mahrez.

    It’s goalless between Sheffield United and Wolves… and that’s about all I have to say about that game.

    West Ham trail high-flying Burnley thanks to a Jay Rodriguez goal. If the Clarets cling on then they’ll move into ninth – just a point behind seventh-placed Arsenal. The Hammers, meanwhile, will stay four points above the relegation zone having played a game more than their rivals.

    Consider yourselves updated.

    Evening…

    Welcome to our LIVE coverage of Brighton vs Liverpool from the Amex Stadium.

    What’s that? A dead rubber you say? An anti-climax? You’re not going to bother watching?!

    Well I can assure you that… OK, who am I kidding. There’s nothing much on the line this evening as the confirmed champions take on a side fairly certain to remain in the top-flight.

    So consider this a hype-free zone and let’s just enjoy some football.

    Team news and line ups coming shortly. Standby.
