It’s no surprise that Liverpool defenders are popular, with back to back clean sheets to start the season. Robertson has been the go to selection, but the Editor has identified a significantly cheaper alternative in the underlying statistics.

The absence of some key players won’t help Brighton’s case, as they travel to Anfield for a tricky fixture. Lewis Dunk in particular will be a big loss in the heart of their defence. Advantage Liverpool attackers?
"Lewis Dunk [ankle] hasn't trained this week but it's not as bad as we first feared. Florin Andone [groin], Bruno [hamstring] and Jose Izquierdo [knee] will all miss the weekend." #BHAFC
