Brentford VS Liverpool Football Live Score 25 September 2021
Brentford have no fresh injury problems and are likely to field the bulk of the team that beat Wolves last weekend.
“There will be 10 of the same starters and then I need to find the last one,” said head coach Thomas Frank.
Thiago Alcantara is likely to miss Liverpool’s next three matches with the calf injury he suffered last weekend.
Naby Keita is also absent this Saturday because of the minor foot injury he sustained during the midweek EFL Cup win against Norwich.
This is Liverpool’s first visit to Brentford in the league since 1947 and there will be a great atmosphere to welcome them.
The Bees will be lively on the pitch too – Ivan Toney does a great job and they have got goals in them, which gives them a chance in games – or most games anyway.
I just think Liverpool will be too strong for them. Jurgen Klopp has been rotating his team regularly but it does not seem to make much difference to results – he generally gets it right when he leaves people out.
This is the first time the teams have met since 1989, and the first league encounter since 1947.
Brentford’s most recent competitive victory against Liverpool was by 2-1 in the top flight at Griffin Park in 1938.
Liverpool have scored four goals in each of the last three matches between the sides, all of which have come in cup competitions.
Brentford Community Stadium will be the 60th ground at which Liverpool have played a Premier League game.
