Liverpool travel to Brighton on October 8 as Jurgen Klopp’s side make their return to Premier League action.
Klopp’s charges slipped to their first defeat of the season last weekend as Joel Matip’s own goal completed a controversial 2-1 home win for Tottenham with VAR catastrophes dominating the aftermath.
Liverpool also maintained their winning start in the Europa League, with a 2-0 home victory over Union Saint-Gilloise, as Brighton battled back to secure a 2-2 draw at Marseille.
