Team News Brentford vs Liverpool
Brentford are confident Ivan Toney will be fit for the game after being stretchered off against West Ham. Both Kristoffer Ajer and Aaron Hickey are close to returning to first-team action, but they won’t be risking it for Liverpool’s visit.
Tomás Frank added: “[Thomas] Strakosha is getting closer… Shandon [Baptiste] is still out with a groin injury and Frank [Onyeka] He won’t play, he has a hamstring injury.”
Liverpool could debut Cody Gakpo in January, which means Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could break through if launched from the start.
Both of them Harvey Elliott and Andy Robertson will be tested before kickoff after receiving blows. Fabinho missed the win over Leicester because his wife gave birth so it remains to be seen if he is available.
Brentford vs Liverpool betting tip and prediction
Brentford ooze confidence at the moment, and rightly so, but they were allowed to get into their rhythm against West Ham and Tottenham, a privilege I don’t think Liverpool would grant them.
Liverpool look a completely different beast than they did just a few months ago, although they did get lucky against Leicester, and we should enjoy an entertaining game in west London. Let’s hope Darwin Núñez finds his shooting boots, for once.
Liverpool to win, 3-1.
