Brighton and Liverpool will battle it out for a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup as they meet for the third time this season.

The Seagulls have had the measure of the Reds so far, drawing 3-3 at Anfield then sweeping them aside 3-0 at the Amex Stadium in the two league encounters. Roberto De Zerbi's side thrashed Middlesbrough 5-1 to reach the fourth round; Brighton were knocked out at this stage by Spurs last term.

As for Liverpool – who came through a replay with Wolves in the third round – they'll be looking to continue their quest for a second successive FA Cup, something they've never achieved before. The Reds battered then Championship Brighton 6-1 in their last FA Cup clash, which came in the fifth round 11 years ago.

Kick-off is at 1:30pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the FA Cup (opens in new tab) wherever you are.

Team news

Brighton are without injured ex-Liverpool man Adam Lallana, as well as long-term absentee Jakub Moder, Levi Colwill and Facundo Buonanotte. Moises Caicedo has reportedly not trained amid a rejected transfer bid from Arsenal and will play no part.

Manager Robert De Zerbi makes four changes from the team that drew against Leicester in their last match. Jason Steele, Tariq Lamptey, Adam Webster and Evan Ferguson come in for Robert Sanchez, Caicedo, Jan Paul van Hecke and Lallana.

Liverpool are still without injured quintet Virgil van Dijk, Arthur, Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota. Fabio Carvalho has also been ruled out.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has made just one change from the team that drew against Chelsea last weekend in the Premier League, with Trent Alexander-Arnold in for James Milner. 

Brighton XI: Steele; Lamptey, Webster, Dunk, Estupinan; March, Mac Allister, Gross; Welbeck, Mitoma, Ferguson.

Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Konate, Robertson; Bajcetic, Thiago, Keita; Salah, Gakpo, Elliott.


Brighton come into this clash sitting pretty in sixth in the Premier League, two points and three places above Liverpool. The Seagulls have won four and drawn one of their last six games in all competitions, with the sole defeat coming against Premier League leaders Arsenal.

By contrast, Liverpool have won just one of their last five matches – 1-0 at Wolves in their third round replay – losing 3-1 away to Brentford and, just a couple of weeks ago, 3-0 at Brighton. Harvey Elliott's spectacular strike at Molineux was the Reds' only goal in three outings.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch FA Cup football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for an FA Cup tie, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the FA Cup, FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
