Liverpool will take on Brentford on Saturday, April 6, with a kickoff time of 5:30pm. Can the Reds solidify their spot in the European qualification places?
The Reds will be without Thiago Alcantara, Calvin Ramsay, Stefan Bajcetic and Roberto Firmino for their match against the Bees. Additionally, Naby Keita is a major doubt – he is nearing a return to full fitness, but the game at the weekend will likely come too soon for him.
In their last game, Liverpool defeated Fulham by a score of 1-0. The Reds were awarded a contentious penalty, which was duly slotted home by Mohamed Salah – the Cottagers failed to respond, giving Liverpool all three points.
Brentford were also victorious in their last game, as they beat moneybags Nottingham Forest by a score of 2-1. The Bees trailed for most of the game – nevertheless, they staged a late comeback, as Ivan Toney and Josh Dasilva found the back of the net to give the London club a precious three points.
When the two teams last met, back in January, Brentford sprung a surprise as they beat Liverpool by a score of 3-1. The Reds’ only goal of the game was scored by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – can they gain a modicum of vengeance on Saturday evening?
