Hopes will be high at Anfield on Saturday as Liverpool will host Brentford for a Premier League fixture. The Reds have witnessed a sudden rise in the quality of their game and have made it to the Europa League spot for the next season. Brentford will be hoping to stun the hosts and gain some away points before the season ends.
After witnessing a disappointing season, Liverpool has finally revived the quality of their game and now they stand at the 5th spot in the point table.
Brentford is currently in 9th position in the points table with 50 points and 12 wins. They are in close competition with Brighton as the latter is two points ahead.
We expect Liverpool to win after both teams scoring.
The betting tip is...
Both teams to score a goal in the second half.
The Reds are on a 7-match unbeaten streak and post their win over Tottenham last week, they have jumped to the Europa League spot for the next season.
In the previous game, Liverpool scored a win over Fulham by 1-0 at Anfield. Mohamed Salah converted a penalty in the 39th minute but the home team failed to score any other goal. The major concern for Jurgen Klopp will be the weak defense.
Cody Gakpo will be seen on the bench as Darwin Nunez returns to the starting XI.
Predicted Lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas, Henderson, Fabinho, Jones, Salah, Nunez, Diaz
The Bees have witnessed a rough patch in recent weeks as they lost two games to Manchester United and Newcastle respectively. However, the visitors bounced back with a win over Chelsea and in the previous fixture defeated Nottingham Forest by 2-1.
Brentford has maintained good possession stats as well, but playing at Anfield will be a difficult task for them.
Pontus Jansson is in the injury room for the remainder of the season because of his hamstring problem.
Predicted Lineup: Raya; Hickey, Pinnock, Mee, Henry; Jensen, Onyeka, Janelt; Mbeumo, Toney, Schade
The Reds will be motivated to avenge their embarrassing January defeat by 3-1 which happened at Gtech Community Stadium.
The problem is the weak defense, but we predict a win for Liverpool because of their strong attack.
