Liverpool vs Brentford Prediction And Odds: Liverpool To Win
Brentford will host Liverpool for their GW 6 Premier League outing in the coming weekend. Now, no one would have shred an eye for a matchup between a side that is featuring in their first-ever Premier League season against Jurgen Klopp’s prepotent Liverpool. But, as things stand, Thomas Frank’s Brentford have lost only a single game in their first five Premier League games. The Bees have earned their 2 wins and have dug deep to halt the oppositions for a draw in the other two. Liverpool will still enter the match as the clear favourites but Jurgen Klopp will indeed do some heavy preparations for the surprise package of the season.
Liverpool vs Brentford Prediction And Odds: Preview
Liverpool are coming on the back of a very impecunious season right after winning the Premier League a season before. The 2019-20 PL winners failed to defend their title in the next season. Nevertheless, Liverpool, somehow, managed to finish in the top 4 and made it to the Champions League for this season. The return of Dutch defender Virgil Van Djik has certainly boosted their confidence to an extent.
Liverpool are currently unbeaten in the league as they are the joint first-place holders with Chelsea and Man United at this stage. Liverpool have won 4 of their played 5 Premier League games. The Merseyside Reds only dropped a couple of points when they faced Chelsea in GW 3. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are back in shape as they look equipped to take on the English top-tier league again. However, they still have an area of concern.
It is very clear that Liverpool lacks squad depth. The Reds don’t have a second-choice player for most of the crucial sections of their team. If anyone from Virgil Van Dijk, Mo. Salah, Trent Arnold, Alisson or Mane gets injured, it will be impossible for Klopp to replace them with any of the available players from their squad. We saw what happened to the Liverpool side when Van Dijk got injured last season.
The Reds collapsed like a house of cards and Anfield, which was their unbreached fortress for years, was massacred by the opponents in consecutive games. Gaffer Jurgen Klopp and fellow Liverpool’s fans will certainly hope for a fit squad for the entire season and will be seemingly eyeing a signing or two from John Henry and Tom Werner in the upcoming winter transfer window.
Again, the Bees have been really impressive so far in the season. Brentford have shown calibre and have backed themselves in every game they have featured in. Thomas Frank’s rookies are courageous and have the ability to shine under pressure. Brentford displayed their potential in their last week away game against Wolves. 10-man Bees won the game 2-0 with goals from Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbeumo.
However, if i am Thomas Frank, i won’t get too ambitious before the Liverpool game. A huge loss against Liverpool will certainly get the spirit of the players and the fans down to a par. Brentford will most certainly go easy in their major fixture against the Reds. A draw will also be a major boost for the Bees against Liverpool in front of their fans. Nevertheless, Frank has been valiant so far and can replicate the same in the Liverpool game as well.
Liverpool have met with a couple of injury issues before the Brentford clash. Thiago and Arnold will most-probably miss the encounter next week. Klopp is likely to play 25-year-old Konstantinos Tsimikas in the right-back position. Bobby Firmino is also expected to start the match in place of Diego Jota.
