There’s no rest for the wicked and the Premier League is back for another round of fixtures this weekend. Kicking things off is Brighton v Liverpool and who better to give us the low down other than Phil Thompson who’s in red-hot form after correctly tipping the Real Madrid v PSG score during the week at a healthy 13/1.
WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS
The Paddy Power ambassador and Kop idol is up early doors and ready to rumble as his Liverpool try to keep up with pace-setters Manchester City at the top of the table. Will they make short work of Brighton or will their defeat against Inter during the week throw them off course? It’s time for Thommo’s Brighton v Liverpool tips.

Liverpool had won 12 on the spin until the Inter Milan game. It give the players a little bit of a kick up the backside, they didn’t play particularly well and missed quite a lot of chances it has to be said. Luis Diaz missed an absolute sitter.
It’s a little bit of a wake-up call for everybody without it costing them. I still think that form is there, they’re playing against a Brighton team that was, up until a few weeks ago, enjoying a decent season.
But they’ve lost their last four Premier League games. They lost against Newcastle last weekend, 2-1, but they’ve won just three of their last 22 Premier League games now so all’s not looking well.

I’m going for a Liverpool Win in this one. I fancy Liverpool to get back on the goal-scoring trail and I’m going 2-0 to Liverpool and for Liverpool to Win to Nil. I think Mo Salah to Score Anytime will be a good bet.
