Brentford predicted lineup vs Liverpool - Premier League

14 January 2022 07:15

Brentford will be eager to put the disappointment of their 4-1 midweek defeat to Southampton behind them when they travel to face Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League.

Thomas Frank apologised to the travelling Bees support at St. Mary's, although his side are still comfortably nested in midtable.

Additionally, they will take great confidence from their previous meeting with Liverpool back in September when they gave Jurgen Klopp's side a bloody nose in a 3-3 draw.

Here's how the Bees could line up on Merseyside.
