Brentford vs Liverpool Match Preview

Brentford are competing in England’s top-tier for the first time since 1947 this season and The Bees have looked the part in the Premier League so far, pocketing an impressive eight points from their first five matches in the division.

A fixture against Liverpool is a dream tie for a team that had been drifting through the lower-league wilderness for over 70 years, though Saturday’s clash with the Reds will also undoubtedly be Brentford’s toughest test to date.

The Bees performed well in their 2-0 win at Wolves last weekend, though manager Thomas Frank will know that difference between Wanderers and Liverpool is more of a high-jump than a step up in class.

With the returning Virgil van Dijk’s steadying influence a major factor, Jurgen Klopp’s side have started the new campaign like genuine title contenders, claiming 13 points from the first 15 on offer.

Only Manchester United have scored more goals than the rampant Merseysiders so far, though the Reds hold the joint-best defensive record in the Premier League so far having conceded only once in 450 minutes of football.

Senegalese international Sadio Mane – who cut such a frustrated figure last term – looks back to his razor-sharp best, while Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah looks primed to launch another assault for the Golden Boot.

No team has managed to penetrate Brentford’s defense more than once in a single Premier League fixture this season, though that promising record could be under threat against a Liverpool team that are playing with a real swagger.

Brentford vs Liverpool Picks

Liverpool to score in both halves @ 5/4 (bet365)

Liverpool have been a devastating attacking force in the early throes of the 2021/22 season and while the Reds are one goal short of Man Utd’s overall haul so far, Klopp’s side are out on their own in another metric.

The title-hopefuls are averaging a staggering 25 attempts per game this term – which is the division’s highest figure by quite a distance – and Liverpool have hit the net in both halves in four of their five league assignments since the summer.

The ease at which the Reds are slicing through defences should allow them to put Brentford to the sword on Saturday and we recommend backing them to notch in each half again at better than evens with bet365.

Mohamed Salah to score anytime @ 1/1(bet365)

Mohamed Salah remains Liverpool’s most potent game-changing talisman and the Egyptian attacker has scored in 80% of the Reds’ Premier League fixtures this season.

Salah is averaging a whopping 4.4 attempts on goal per appearance in the division – an output bettered only by his teammate Sadio Mane (4.8) and West Ham’s Michail Antonio (4.5).

The 29-year-old – who is also Liverpool’s designated penalty taker – is available at an excellent price to make his mark again against Brentford and we recommend you don’t pass up the opportunity to back him to score anytime.
