Player to watch – Mohamed Salah

Despite missing parts of the season through injury and AFCON 2023, Mo Salah has still managed to be Liverpool's key player.

The Egyptian international top scores for the Reds with 15 league goals and is also the club's most creative player with nine assists, so you can see why having him back in the starting lineup could prove key to Liverpool's title push.

Salah still producing at the highest level

We're backing Salah to score against Brighton and help guide Liverpool to another three points at home.
