Liverpool v Brentford Odds
Liverpool are favourites as we enter this weekend’s match, and they can be currently gotten at 4/9.
Brentford are underdogs and can be gotten at 5/1 while the draw is currently priced at 15/4.
Interestingly a staggering 96% of bets taken (at the time of writing) are on a Liverpool win, with only 2% backing a Brentford win and a further 2% picking the draw.
The Form – Liverpool v Brentford
Liverpool comes into this fixture in flying form having won their last five league matches since their 2-2 home draw against Arsenal back in April.
They battered Leeds 1-6, beat Nottingham Forrest 3-2 in a thriller, defeated West Ham 1-2, got the better of Tottenham 4-3 in another thriller and most recently did enough to get past Fulham on Wednesday 1-0. In that Fulham match where they created an XG of 1.8 to their opponents 0.9.
Liverpool’s run of form has given them an outside chance of landing a top-four spot with four games to play. They are currently fifth on 59-points which has them four points behind Man United in fourth. However they have two more games played than their fierce rivals.
Brentford have had an excellent season this year, they are currently in ninth position on 50 points after 34 games and only nine points off Liverpool in fifth position and four points off a Europa League spot.
In their last five matches, they have two wins one draw and two defeats but are also unbeaten in their last three matches most recently beating Chelsea 0-2 and Nottingham Forrest 2-1 in their last two league games.
A win for Brentford could put them in eighth position and only one point outside a Europa League spot as the season draws to an exciting crescendo.

Liverpool v Brentford Preview
Liverpool has the third-best attack in the Division this season with 66 goals scored this season averaging 1.94 goals per match. Mo Salah has been their leading light in attack again this season with 18 goals and 7 assists in his 34 league matches.
In their last five league matches they have scored 16 goals in their last five league matches which is a staggering average of 3.2 goals per game.
Brentford’s defence has conceded 44 goals this season an average of 1.29 goals per match which is good enough to be the eighth best defence in the league. Brentford are generally strong in the air but leave themselves open at the back, particularly from long shots.
Brentford boost the seventh-best attack this season with 52 goals scoring an average of 1.53 goals per match across their 34 matches. Brentford is a dangerous side that likes to play on the counter-attack through balls and crosses. They are also capable of finding the net from set pieces.
Ivan Toney is the star man in attack with an excellent return of 20 goals and 4 assists in his 32 league matches this season only Kane (24) and Haaland (35) have scored more goals than the Brentford hitman.
Liverpool has the joint sixth-best defence in the league this season with season conceding 42 goals across their 34 matches an average of 1.23 goals per match. In their last five league matches they have conceded 7 goals which is an average of 1.4 goals per match.
Liverpool are also a side who often struggle to stop teams from creating chances, particularly on the counter which is bad news for them as they face a Brentford counter-attacking system led by the prolific Ivan Toney.
Liverpool v Brentford Prediction
Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Brentford
Liverpool are in flying form but Brentford are no pushovers, especially with Ivan Toney up front so don’t be surprised if there is a surprise draw on the cards.
With that being said I expect Liverpool to do enough and get the win this Saturday evening.
In another big Premier League clash this weekend Newcastle and Arsenal will go head-to-head. We previewed that game in a recent post and gave our Newcastle v Arsenal prediction for Sunday evening’s game.
