Brentford vs Liverpool live stream: Premier League prediction, TV channel, how to watch online, odds

Liverpool travel to face Brentford in the Premier League on Monday with victory taking Jurgen Klopp’s side to within a point of the top four. It’s taken a while, but Liverpool are starting to string the wins as Leicester centre-back Wout Faes scored an unfortunate brace of own goals to push the Reds to victory last time out. But Liverpool had to work to create the attacking chances to score those goals as well. The reintroduction of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlin has brought some much-needed balance to the attack. Winners of four consecutive Premier League games after losing to Leeds United, Liverpool have found their swagger but Thomas Frank’s bees have been a thorn in Premier League sides.

Unafraid to face anyone in the league, Brentford have beaten City, drawn Tottenham and beaten West Ham United in their last three matches. It’s as tough as any team in the league will face, but the gauntlet continues with Liverpool. Frank will have a tough decision to make to replace Ivan Toney, who left the West Ham victory on a stretcher with a knee injury, but Bryan Mbeumo can make the Liverpool defense work. too.

Scenarios

Brentford: Frank will be recovering quite a few players in the near future as Aaron Hickey, Kristoffer Ajer, Frank Onyeka and Thomas Strakosha all regain their health. Toney’s situation is odd as he hasn’t been entirely dropped from the game yet, but with such a tight deadline between Saturday and Monday, it doesn’t make sense for Brentford to risk their most important player in this game. Considering they could be without Toney depending on how the FA decides to proceed following their betting allegations, it’s best that Toney is out and hopefully healthy to pick up as many points as possible before a possible suspension.

Liverpool: Cody Gakpo is in the building but don’t expect him to make his debut against Brentford. When asked when Gakpo would make his debut, Jurgen Klopp said: “There might be a chance for Brentford, but I don’t really think so, to be honest. Because obviously January 1st is a holiday, and then all the papers. We won’t rush anyway. So, probably wolves.

Andrew Robertson will also have a late fitness test after picking up a hamstring injury, but with games to come it’s a good opportunity to give Konstantinos Tsimikas a run in what would be a natural rotation for festive games. Liverpool are hoping that Darwin Nunez can hit the back of the net as he has taken good positions but is not making the right decisions as if things go well this side will roll with Gakpo coming to improve the attack.

Prediction

Liverpool’s defense is a concern as it allows chances to attack for fun, but the team are in full attack. The Reds will get what they need to secure a win at Brentford. Take: Brentford 1, Liverpool 2
