Cape Town - Brighton manager Chris Hughton has called
on his charges to improve their away form ahead of the trip to Merseyside to
face high flying Liverpool.
The Seagulls wade into the clash with the
Reds after a massive 3-2 victory over Manchester United.
Hughton admitted that the big victory over
Jose Mourinho's side has worked wonders on the confidence of his players but
expects a different ball game at Anfield against the in-form Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp's side clinched 4-0 and 2-0
victories over West Ham and Crystal Palace respectively in their two opening
Hughton told a press conference: "We
have to approach Saturday in a manner which will allow us to get something -
the Manchester United result should give us the confidence to do that.
"Perhaps we didn't get the credit we
deserved on Sunday but that's normal, it comes with the coverage of the big
teams but it’s not a bad thing to go under the radar.
"We're expecting a quick game because
of how they play, they have a lot of pace in the side. They've showed it last
season and have made good additions to the squad.
"We have to defend well on Sunday but
also be a threat ourselves. We'll need good periods in the game and will have
to take advantage of those.
"The challenge is for us to improve
our away form and they don't come any tougher than away at Anfield."
Kick-off is at 18:30 (SA time).
