On Sunday afternoon, Brentford and Liverpool will play at Anfield. The current runs of form for the two sides are significantly different going into this.

Following a terrible start to the season, Brentford has won their last three games, including a 3-2 triumph over West Ham, a rival team in London, and another victory and clean sheet at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool, on the other hand, was only able to draw away from newly promoted Luton Town last Sunday after suffering their first Europa League loss against Toulouse on Thursday.

They will, however, benefit from the Anfield rise. In every one of their eight home games this season across all competitions, the Reds have triumphed.

They seek to maintain their great record with this game, which will be their first home match of November, against Brentford.

Virgil van Dijk, who ought to have recovered from his illness and be available at the back, will also be a plus.

Van Dijk should, as previously stated, make a comeback, while Ryan Gravenberch, if he recovers from his knee injury, will be a late addition. But Thiago Alcantara, Stefan Bajcetic, Andy Robertson, and Curtis Jones won’t be available.

Aaron Hickey will miss the remainder of the season for Brentford. Josh Dasilva, Mikkel Damsgaard, Rico Henry, and Kevin Schade are all sidelined with injuries. Ivan Toney is still in the midst of his eight-month gambling prohibition.

The Managers’ Takeaways

Jurgen Klopp: “It’s spectacular set pieces, really well-organized, all these kinds of things.” Extremely quick and aggressive players with excellent counterattacking skills.

They occasionally switch up their tactics; if they think you’re a top-six team, they’ll be a little more defensive; if not, they’ll be a little more possession-oriented.

Other Manager: “Liverpool has been among the best teams in the world, not just in the Premier League, for the past five years.” They have excellent players and a strong coaching staff.
