Albion can secure a win to enter club folklore – as the Amex goes back on red alert.

Liverpool visit this evening (8.15pm, Sky Sports) with Graham Potter’s men aiming to extend their nine-point lead over the relegation zone.

It is another huge test for the Seagulls without the help of their fans after restart home matches against Arsenal and Manchester United.

But, if all goes well this week, the points left on the table will not, in themselves, be enough for teams in the drop zone to catch Albion over the last four games.

They would also need something more - in this case, a big goal difference swing.

Albion changed their gameplan and were overpowered for 50 minutes as they lost 3-0 at home to a highly impressive United team last Tuesday.

The result was more about United’s individual and collective quality then any home failings.

But team selection and tactics were a surprise for many Albion fans.

It will be intriguing to see how their side go about things against the Anfield giants.

Asked whether he could learn anything from what happened against United, Potter told The Argus: “I would say it’s obviously a different game. There were things, of course.

“I wouldn’t want to say too much because then it gives something away for the preparation of this game.

“Manchester United were really in form. I think they are probably the form team in the country.

“They are free-flowing, they are scoring and there were things we did well in the game.

“It wasn’t as bad as it feels with a 3-0 scoreline.

“We needed a bit of perspective in terms of what we have done and then in what we need to do.

“Seven points from the first four games is good for us but, at the same time, we never want to lose.

“We always want to go into a game trying to win.

“We will do the same (tonight) Wednesday with the respect to the opposition.”
