Tip Reasoning

  • Brentford have failed to win in their last six away games, losing 4-1 at Southampton this week
  • The Bees have shipped 3+ goals at the Saints, Newcastle and Burnley in that run
  • Liverpool scored three goals when these two met earlier this season
  • The Reds have scored 2.6 goals per home game this term

Reds look to regain scoring touch

Liverpool certainly felt the absence of Mo Salah and Sadio mane this week, as they drew 0-0 with Arsenal in the Carabao Cup. They failed to get an advantage in the first leg of their semi-final clash, while they have the same issue to overcome in the next few weeks.

Liverpool host Brentford on Sunday hoping that their new-look forward line can swing back into scoring form. Of course, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota are fine understudies for Jurgen Klopp to call upon. Can they fire the Reds to victory this weekend?

Tough trip for Brentford

Brentford have struggled on the road this season, losing four of their 10 trips and winning only two times. After an initial strong start on their travels the Bees have failed to win in their last six on the road in the league, while they’ve been wide open defensively.

Across those six games Brentford have conceded three or more on three occasions, while they’ve shipped 16 goals in total during that run. They were thumped 4-1 away to Southampton in midweek, not ideal preparation for a visit to Anfield.

Comfortable win for Reds

Brentford may not be clashing with Liverpool at their best, but there’s little doubt their forward line still packs a punch. Jota has scored four goals in his last four Premier League home games, while Firmino has scored four goals in his last three Premier League games against promoted sides.

Liverpool benefit from the aggressive pressing style that Klopp has put in place and that should pay off for them this weekend. They’ve scored 2.6 goals per home game in the league this term, while they put three past Brentford when the pair met earlier this season.

Given Brentford’s issues at the back, Liverpool should be back in scoring form on Sunday. Back over 2.5 goals for the Reds in this one, while a 3-1 victory for the hosts is my correct score prediction given that the Bees have scored in 70% of their top-flight games since promotion.

Liverpool predicted lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Chamberlain; Jota, Firmino, Jones

Brentford predicted lineup: Fernandez; Pinnock, Jansson, Sorensen; Roerslev, Baptiste, Norgaard, Jensen, Canos; Toney, Mbeumo
