Jurgen Klopp is determined to deliver the Premier League title to Liverpool this season

Albion's top scorer for that campaign, Andy Ritchie, claimed the winning goal for Mike Bailey's team against an impressive Liverpool outfit, who went on to win their 13th league title that season.

The odds will equally be stacked against Brighton this time around. Jurgen Klopp's latest Liverpool line-up is just as fearsome as the title winners from 1982, which then included the likes Alan Hansen, Graeme Souness and Ian Rush.

Graham Potter's Albion arrive at the Champions League winners and Premier League leaders in 12th place on 15 points after 13 matches. Brighton have lost their last two matches against Manchester United and Leicester, while Liverpool are unbeaten this season and have only dropped two points this campaign.
