Liverpool vs Brentford Premier League 2022 Match Prediction,Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News, Preview and Where to Watch.
Liverpool’s title hopes have dwindled massively, as a return of no wins in their last three Premier League (PL) matches (D2, L1) has left Jürgen Klopp’s men needing to make up a double-digit gap on league leaders Manchester City.
Most recently, a goalless first-leg draw in the EFL Cup semi-final (against ten-man Arsenal).Showed that the hosts are sorely missing the goal threat usually provided by their departed AFCON stars.
On a better note for the ‘Reds’, they own the last remaining undefeated home record in the league (W6, D3).After only letting in six PL home goals all campaign.
This is also the first time they’ll be hosting Brentford in a PL game, and intriguingly, Liverpool have only lost one of the last 17 matches when hosting a team at Anfield for the first time in the PL (W11, D5).
Brentford will look to their 3-3 draw in the reverse fixture as a confidence booster.Given they were pummelled 4-1 last time out by Southampton in a poor showing.
Although they still enjoy a comfortable margin between themselves and the relegation spots.
Even so, the ‘Bees’ will be buzzing to get back into the top half of the table.But hitting the road has been a chore for Brentford recently.
As they’ve gone winless in their last six PL road games (D2, L4), while conceding at least twice on each occasion.Read more Manchester City vs Chelsea Premier League 2022 Match Prediction
