After suffering just a second league defeat of the season two weeks ago, Liverpool struggled at times against relegation-threatened Burnley but still had enough firepower to secure all three points. The Reds were far from their free-flowing best but secured a vital win and have now received a timely boost after Mo Salah returned to training following his stint at the African Cup of Nations. The Egyptian suffered a hamstring injury at the tournament and may not be fit enough to start but may well make the bench. 

While Liverpool are chasing the title, Brentford are hoping to continue their march away from the danger zone after picking up two wins in their last four games. The Bees have vastly improved in recent weeks and have been helped by the return of star striker Ivan Toney, who has scored three goals in four games since he returned from his lengthy ban. Manager Thomas Frank will hope the forward can continue this rich vein of form if they are to cause an upset at the Gtech Community Stadium. 

Here’s how they will line up: 

Brentford XI: Flekken; Mee, Ajer, Collins, Norgaard, Jensen, Reguilon, Janelt, Roerslev, Maupay, Toney

Liverpool XI: Kelleher; Bradley, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Endo, Mac Allister, Jones, Diaz, Nunez, Jota
