Brentford vs Liverpool team news
The capital club will welcome back Shandon Baptiste from suspension, although Mads Sorensen and Joshua Dasilva remain absent.
Liverpool have doubts over Roberto Firmino who had a thigh problem but has been back in training and will be assessed close to kick off.
Neco Williams also faces a late fitness test, but Harvey Elliott and Thiago Alcantara are sidelined.
Brentford vs Liverpool preview
The Merseysiders head to London in superb scoring form having netted three times in each of their last four games in all competitions.
Those 12 goals have come from eight different players, showing the Reds have genuine scoring ability right through their squad and they will be confident of continuing their impressive form in the final third this weekend.
Brentford’s defensive record is strong, conceding just twice in five league matches, yet they have not faced an opponent of Liverpool’s attacking quality and Frank’s team are likely to find themselves faced with a real challenge.
Liverpool’s recent away record is superb, with eight wins and a draw in their last nine matches on the road, and there should be plenty of interest in backing an away win on Saturday.
Brentford vs Liverpool tips & predictions
Liverpool to win and score over 1.5 goals is priced at 8/11 (1.73) and has paid out in nine of their last 12 away matches in the Premier League making it a hugely appealing selection.
