Brighton & Hove Albion vs Liverpool - Bernardo blow for Brighton

Brighton left-back Bernardo has been ruled out of the visit of Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Bernardo sustained a hamstring injury in the top-flight clash with West Ham on January 2, and Gaetan Bong is set to deputise.

Goalkeeper Mat Ryan and winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh are both on Asian Cup duty with their countries, while Jose Izquierdo continues to recover from a knee injury.

Liverpool centre-back Joel Matip has a chance of being fit for the trip to the south coast.

The German has missed the last six matches with a broken collarbone but his comeback is timely with Dejan Lovren ruled out for at least a fortnight with a hamstring problem.

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.
