Liverpool FC’s squad for Brighton encounter revealed

Liverpool centre-back Joel Matip has a chance of being fit for the trip to Brighton after returning to training this week.

Adam Lallana (muscle) and Joe Gomez (foot) are both still sidelined but Jordan Henderson is back in training after a calf problem kept him out of the FA Cup defeat at Wolves.
