Why you should back Liverpool

These teams haven’t met often, but the Reds haven’t lost to Brentford since 1938 (7-2-0). They have the third-most goals in the league and have scored twice in four straight EPL matches. Liverpool had 21 shots and seven on target against Leicester and lead the EPL in both categories. They also average 61% possession, second-best in the league, while Brentford are at 44%, tied for third-worst. Mohamed Salah has seven goals and four assists, and he and Darwin Nunez (five goals) are carrying the attack with Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz out with injuries.

Salah has 133 total shots to lead the EPL and shares the lead in attempts on net with 49. The Reds held 68% possession and had 43 shots (19 on target) over the two meetings last season. They scored three goals in each, and while the Bees managed a 3-3 home draw, Liverpool dominated both games.

Why you should back Brentford

The Bees have lost once at home (3-4-1) and are plus-6 in goal differential there (15-9), while Liverpool are 2-2-3 on the road and even in goals (10-10). Brentford have improved dramatically since finishing 13th last season, their first in the EPL since 1947. Their 2-1 road victory against Manchester City should provide a massive jolt of confidence, and they drew with Spurs in their last home match.

The Bees also have scored twice in four straight EPL matches. They are hoping star strikers Ivan Toney, who scored his 12th goal on Friday, will be fit after being injured in the match. Brentford defeated West Ham 2-0, with Josh Dasilva netting his third goal. The 24-year-old has started just eight of his 17 appearances by him. Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa, who have each scored three times, also have the ability to trouble a Liverpool back line that has struggled all season. The Reds have given up 19 goals, just seven fewer than they allowed all of last season.
