Mohamed Salah can move into outright eighth place on Liverpool's all-time league scorers list if he nets against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

The No.11 currently has 120 top-flight goals for the Reds – a tally matched by Steven Gerrard and Sam Raybould – and one more would see him move to within two of seventh-placed Jack Parkinson.

Fabinho, meanwhile, could make his 150th start for the club in the 3pm BST kick-off at Anfield.

If Salah scores he will also overtake Sir Kenny Dalglish (six) as the player with the most goals for Liverpool against Brighton.

Diogo Jota has struck three goals in his last five meetings with Brighton.

Virgil van Dijk is unbeaten in all 67 home league games as a Liverpool player.

The Reds have scored 75 per cent of the goals in their Premier League contests with Brighton – 21 of the 28.

In the Reds' win over AFC Ajax last time out, Joel Matip registered a goal for the 14th consecutive season of his senior career.

Liverpool have failed to score in only three of the 26 previous league encounters versus Brighton.

The only goalless draw between the teams came in the league at Brighton in September 1961.

Paul Walsh, in a 4-0 League Cup win at Anfield in October 1985, is the only Liverpool player to put a hat-trick past Brighton. Nobody has achieved the feat in the league.

Roberto De Zerbi will take charge of Brighton for the first time. The 43-year-old has managed more than 300 games in his career with six clubs, latterly Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine.
