Liverpool v Brentford – Match Preview

Jurgen Klopp’s side face Premier League newcomers Brentford at Anfield on Sunday afternoon (kick-off 2pm).

The away fixture finished 3-3 back in September, after the Bees claimed a deserved equaliser in the 82nd minute.

Having said that, we must remember that Brentford are without a win in eight matches against Liverpool in all competitions since a 2-1 victory at Griffin Park in 1938. They have lost their last five away games against Liverpool in all competitions, with their only win at Anfield coming in 1937.

This time around Klopp will be hoping for a better performance than last time out, when Liverpool played out a dire goalless draw with 10-man Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Thursday night.

Without Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita to call upon, the Reds look lacking in the final third and need to get more creative if they are to break down what is expected to be a tight Brentford defence on Sunday.

Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson and James Milner suffered knocks in Thursday’s game, but should be fit to play, but Divock Origi is still out with a knee injury, picked up at AC Milan last month.
