The Liverpool vs Brentford live stream isn't just a tale of two cities, but a tale of two teams in vastly different positions in the Premier League. The Reds are currently in third place, hoping to gain ground on Manchester City and Chelsea to vie for the title. Meanwhile, the Bees are hovering around the middle of the table.
Brentford have lost three of their last four Premier League matches, including a dispiriting defeat to Southampton earlier this week. The club is in weaker form than they were when they first met Liverpool in September and came away with a draw. Thomas Frank can feel some relief that his side seems clear of the relegation zone in their first season after promotion into the top flight, though he undoubtedly would like them to return to the strong play they exhibited in the fall.
But it'll be extremely tough to take three points off Liverpool at Anfield, considering they haven't won an away game in six outings.
The Reds have had their own struggles lately: a disappointing draw against Arsenal in Carabao Cup action this week, a draw against Chelsea at the start of the new year and a surprising loss to Leicester City in late December.
Not only will Jurgen Klopp's side be less rested than Brentford, but they'll be sorely missing Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, who are currently at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON). They can count on home field advantage, at least — they've run up a four-win streak at Anfield. Plus, Manchester City's win over Chelsea yesterday makes it possible that Liverpool could inch past the latter club in the table.
Here's how they line up:
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Jones, Henderson, Fabinho, Jota, Firmino, Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Brentford: Fernandez, Pinnock, Jansson, Ajer, Norgaard, Roerslev, Janelt, Henry, Baptiste, Mbeumo, Toney.
