PL2 preview: Livramento on importance of derby win and how to watch live as Cech set to start

Livramento has been very busy up and down the right side of the pitch all season but while enjoying his football, he admits to not having a preference in terms of playing position and reveals what target Ed Brand set for him last term.

‘It’s been a good start to the season for me. I’ve just been enjoying it and been playing in a few different positions, but always down the right side. It’s been fun, especially playing with Myles [Peart-Harris] in front of me or Henry [Lawrence] behind me when I’m playing on the wing, I’ve really enjoyed creating combinations of play with them two,’ explained the 18-year-old.

‘I don’t actually know which position I prefer, anywhere down the right is where I want to play – but I couldn’t name a position I like the most, just as long as I’m playing!

‘I spoke with Ed [Brand] last season and he said the one thing he would like to see added to my game and is goals and assists. If I keep getting into positions to have a shot or cut it back to someone else then those numbers will continue to increase, I’m just trying to put it in an area where one of my team-mates could be to score.’

With just three points separating eighth-placed Brighton from first-placed Man City ahead of the weekend of games, Livramento feels a derby win is as important as ever.

‘The league is so tight any result, win or draw, is a positive because you are keeping up with the top of the table. It’s really important to come away with at least a draw from this game but it’s a derby and we will be going for the win against a Spurs side who we know have goals in them. We want to end the year on a high and start the New Year on a positive note.’
