Brentford vs Liverpool live

The Reds are currently sixth in the Premier League table, and they will be hoping to close in on the top four with a victory away from home.Brentford vs Liverpool live

Jurgen Klopp will feel that this is a golden opportunity for his players to close the gap with their rivals. The likes of Manchester City and Tottenham have dropped points over the last few days and the Reds will be hoping to take advantage of that.

Liverpool have managed to win their last four league matches and they will be full of confidence heading into this contest.

Although Liverpool were lucky to grind out a win over Leicester City in their last league game, the visitors will fancy their chances of grinding out the all-important three points.

Meanwhile, Brentford are coming into this game on the back of a comprehensive win against West Ham United, and they will be looking to pull off a home win against Liverpool.

Thomas Frank’s men are capable of beating any side on their day and the Reds will have to work hard in order to pick up an away win here.

Zanka, Ethan Pinnock and Ben Mee will lineup as the central defenders in a back three. In the midfield, Mads Roerslev and Rico Henry will start as the wing-backs and Mathias Jensen, Christian Norgaard and Vitaly Janelt will start in the middle of the park.

Yoane Wissa and Bryan Mbeumo will lead the line for the hosts.

Player to watch out for

Darwin Nunez

The Uruguayan striker continues to impress with his performances despite not getting on the score sheet.

The 22-year-old caused all sorts of problems for Leicester City at the back in the last game, and he will look to harass the Brentford defence with his pace, flair and relentless work ethic.

Nunez will be desperate to get on the score sheet, and he will certainly fancy his chances against Brentford on Monday.
