Brentford v Liverpool
Brentford Community Centre
2nd January, 23:00 p.m.
After a convincing win away from home against their London rivals, Thomas Frank’s men are ready to welcome Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in their own backyard.
Despite the injury concerns, Liverpool has regained its tempo and rhythm, winning back-to-back games against Villa and Leicester. After what had been a shaky start to the season, a win against the Bees tonight would edge them closer to that No. 4 spot once again in the table.
For Brentford as well, a win would move them closer to a Conference League qualification slot, a position that many fans wouldn’t have even dreamt of after their West London side gained promotion back to the top flight.
Ivan Toney, the club’s star striker, is a slight doubt for the game after picking up a knock against the Hammers. In his absence, Congolese trouper Yoanne Wissa would lead the forward line with fellow African Bryan Mbeumo, who would look to exploit the Reds’ defensively vulnerable right side, linking up with Rico Henry, who has been brilliant for the Bees thus far this season, in that left wing-back role.
