Liverpool host Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday knowing they’ll qualify for the 2018/19 Champions League if they avoid defeat. It’s as simple as that following on from Huddersfield Town’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Wednesday evening.
The Seagulls have nothing to play for, having secured Premier League survival already, but it won’t be a stroll in the park for Jürgen Klopp’s men.
