Brentford Declassed Oldham in League Cup, Forss Crafted Poker
Thomas Frank’s team is in 9th place in the English Championship (8 points after 5 rounds).
“Bees” have shown decent results at the start of the Premier League for the newcomer of the league. “Brentford” lost only to “Brighton” at home (0: 1), gaining points in all other rounds. These results allowed Frank’s guys to gain a foothold in the middle of the standings.
Brentford are not yet experiencing major problems in another tournament – the League Cup. Londoners at home dealt with Forest Green (3: 1), and last Tuesday played a powerful match in front of their own stands against another representative of the 4th division – Oldham (7: 0).
Liverpool have 6 wins and 1 draw in their last 7 games
Jurgen Klopp’s footballers are on the 2nd line in the Premier League standings (13 points after 5 meetings).
Liverpool have yet to be defeated in the 2021/22 season. In 7 meetings in all tournaments, they have 6 wins and 1 draw in the Premier League home game against London Chelsea (1: 1). After 5 starting rounds in the championship, the Merseysides share the lead with Chelsea and Manchester United.
On September 21, the Reds started confidently in the League Cup. In the away game of the 3rd round, they beat Norwich City with a reserve squad (3: 0). The hero of the meeting was Takumi Minamino, who scored a double. Another 1 goal for the winners was scored by Divok Origi.
The teams will meet for the first time since 1989
The Bees, who made their way into the elite of English football after 74 years, have not crossed paths with the Reds for a long time. The last time it happened was in March 1989, when Liverpool beat rivals from London 4-0 at home in an FA Cup meeting. The teams have not played on the Brentford field since October 1983, when the Merseysides also achieved a major victory in the League Cup match (4: 1).
Naby Keita injured against Norwich
Brentford defender Mads Beck Sorensen has long been eliminated with a knee injury. There is a possibility that one more defensive player, Rico Henry, may remain in the “bees” infirmary.
Liverpool will not include injured midfielders Harvey Elliott and Thiago Alcantara in the squad. Due to health problems, the entry into the field of defenders Trent Alexander-Arnold and Neko Williams, as well as striker Roberto Firmino, is in question. Midfielder Naby Keita may miss a trip to London due to a bruise in the game against Norwich.
Forecast: total over 2.5
The confrontation between the “bees” and the Merseysides should be effective. Brentford are in the top 10 Premier League for the number of goals expected (6.79), while Liverpool are leading the league on this indicator (13.68). Teams in each game create a lot of dangerous moments, and the upcoming meeting will not be an exception to this rule. In addition, total over 2.5 has been recorded in 6 of Liverpool’s 7 previous away games in the league.
