The betting tip is...
Liverpool to win the fixture by a goal line of 3-2
With Mohammad Salah leading their attack, Liverpool has always been dominant. It comes as no surprise that he leads Liverpool in scoring this year as well. He has contributed fourteen goals so far, ten of which are goals and the remaining four are assists.
For the Reds, he has the most shots on goal, followed by Darwin Nunez. Despite a dismal campaign the previous year, the Uruguayan has proven his worth this year as well. With a total of eleven goal contributions—seven goals and four assists—he has 23.2% of his shots on target.
Their keeper, Alisson, has also played admirably. He has made 36 saves so far and has given up just 10 goals, cutting his saves/goal to 3.6.
Thiago is still out with injury and won't be part of starting XI.
Predicted Lineup: Alisson, Joe Gomez, Virgil Van Dijk, Ibrahim Konate, Trent Alexander Arnold, Dominic Sbozoszalai, Alexis Mac Allister, Ryan Gravenberch, Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez, Muhammed Salah
Brentford has been improving, as evidenced by their 9th-place finish in the previous campaign's table. At Brentford FC, Thomas Frank and his team of managers are performing admirably.
Bryan Mbeumo has been their best player thus far this season; he has eight goal contributions in total—six of which are goals and two are assists. With 25.5% of Brentford's shots on goal, he is also the team's best player.
Mathias Jensen, who is also excelling in Brentford's attacking department, helps him up front in the attacking line. His total goal contribution to date is six, having scored four and assisted two.
Brentford will go with the strongest starting XI against Liverpool.
Predicted Lineup: Mark Flakken, Kristroffer Ajer, Nathan Collins, Ethan Pinnock, Christian Norgaard, Mathias Jensen, Frank Onyeka, Bryan Mbuemo, Neal Maupay, Yoane Wissa
Liverpool has a strong past to uphold; although they failed to perform well in the English Premier League the previous season, Jurgen Klopp's philosophy, tactics, and—above all—belief will help this team succeed. It appears that their strikers, Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz, are also finding their rhythm as they put their names on the scoreboard in recent games
Despite being behind due to Ivan Toney's absence, Brentford was able to make up ground thanks to the contributions of players like Mathias Jensen, Bryan Mbuemo, and Neal Maupay. With Thomas Franks at the helm, the team has the potential to secure a position in the top 7. His leadership and strategic abilities could be a significant asset in achieving this goal.
In the last five head-to-head meetings, Liverpool won three, while Brentford won only one and ended up in a draw. We can expect a high-quality match with a lot of goals and thrilling moves.
