Liverpool took on Brentford in their Premier League match on Monday with a win that pulled Jürgen Klopp’s side inside the top four points. It took a while, but Liverpool are starting to build on their winning streak as Leicester centre-back Wout Faes scored an unfortunate own goal to propel the Reds to victory in their last match. But Liverpool had to work to create attacking chances to score those goals. Alex Oxlade His Chamberlin reappearance brought much-needed balance to the attack. Leeds Liverpool, four-time Premier League winners on a four-game winning streak, have found themselves feeling confident after a shock defeat to United, but Thomas his flank beading has proved to be the best in the Premier League. was a bane on the team’s part.

Brentford: With Aaron Hickey, Christopher Ager, Frank Onyeka, and Thomas Strakosha back in good health, Frank will likely have quite a few players back in the near future. Not outright ruled out of the match, but with a very short turnaround from Saturday to Monday, it makes no sense for Brentford to risk their most important player in this match. Given that they could be without Tony depending on how they proceed following the allegations, Tony sat this down to score as many points as possible before a potential suspension I hope you are in good health to do so.
Liverpool: Cody Gakpo is in the building but I don’t think he will make his debut against Brentford. When asked when Gakpo will make his debut, Jürgen Klopp said: ‘Brentford may have a chance, but to be honest I don’t think so. So it’s probably a wolf.”
Andrew Robertson will also have a second-half fitness test after suffering a thigh injury, but with the game intense and fast, it’s a good time to give Konstantinos Tsimikas a runout with the natural rotation of the festive fixtures. Liverpool hope they can hit the back of the net with Darwin Nunez in good positions but not making the right decisions.
Liverpool’s defense is a concern as they are giving attacking chances for fun, but the team has a full flow attack. The Reds will have what it takes to bring victory to Brentford. Choose: Brentford 1, Liverpool 2
