Brighton face Liverpool at the AMEX Stadium on Saturday afternoon in the latest round of Premier League fixtures.

It was a dour match that saw both sides cancel each other out, with precious few chances at either end of the pitch.

Both sides were evenly matched, with little to choose from in terms of possession, both sides registered 10 total shots with four on target.

That was a great away point for Roy Hodgson's men and for Chris Hughton it's another home point, although with their form and season they'll be wishing it was all three.




Tough Follow Up

They have taken 17 points from their opening 14 games, an excellent return from Chris Hughton's side.

The Seagulls find themselves in 10th place in the PL, the Seagulls would be delighted with that position come the end of the season.

They need just 23 more points between now and the season to reach the coveted forty point mark, that normally guarantees Premier League survival.

Seagulls Underdogs
