Brentford vs Liverpool prediction, odds & betting tips

Kick-off: 1730, 02/01/2023

Stadium: Gtech Community Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Brentford gave Liverpool all sorts of problems on home turf last term and are playing well enough to do the same again this season.

That match finished 3-3 after a thrilling end-to-end encounter and if this clash is half as exciting, Sky Sports viewers are in for a treat.

Bwin are offering a price boost of 8/5 for over 3.5 goals to be scored at Gtech Community Stadium and that is our first Brentford vs Liverpool prediction.

Brentford Odds

Brentford returned from the World Cup break with a cracking 2-2 draw versus Tottenham here and then secured a deserved 2-0 success at West Ham.

The Bees went ahead at London Stadium when Christian Norgaard’s volley was saved by Lukasz Fabianski and Ivan Toney snaffled the rebound for his 13th goal of the season.

With half-time approaching, Toney flicked on a throw-in for Josh Dasilva to chase and he outpaced Aaron Cresswell before burying his shot past Fabianski.

Brentford have established something of a hex over the Hammers, having beaten them twice last season.

“It’s a fantastic away win,” beamed Thomas Frank. “Sometimes it just clicks against some opponents, but for Brentford to win against West Ham three times is incredible.”

Sadly, that victory was soured by a late injury to Toney, who jarred his knee after landing awkwardly and had to be taken off on a stretcher.

Even so, the Bees will look to get on the front foot at every opportunity, having previously signed off for Qatar 2022 with an upset win at Manchester City.

They have scored four first-half goals in two games and Brentford vs Liverpool odds.

Last Brentford line-up: Raya, Pinnock, Jorgensen, Mee, Henry, Norgaard, Jensen, Dasilva, Roerslev, Toney, Mbeumo.

Toney could still be fit after his injury wasn’t as bad as first feared. Defenders Aaron Hickey and Kristoffer Ajer are progressing well on their issues but will not be available.

Liverpool Odds

Liverpool spent the lay-off buoyed by victories over Tottenham and Southampton and have stretched their Premier League winning run to four since the resumption.

The Reds followed up a 3-1 triumph at Aston Villa with a 2-1 defeat of Leicester at Anfield, albeit in slightly fortuitous circumstances.

Having gone behind early on, Jurgen Klopp’s side benefited from two first-half own goals from Wout Faes.

Klopp commented: “The result is very pleasing obviously, but we all saw the game and it was not our best performance, we know that.

“We lost balls in the wrong moment, when we were too open, so for a long time we never got a foot in this game.

“At half-time, we knew we had to improve and we did. Our line was higher, more aggressive in the challenges, more connected.

“We had massive chances in the second half where we could have finished the game off, but we didn’t use them and still they had their moments.”

Liverpool have gone six Premier League games without keeping a clean sheet, but they do look good going forward.

New signing Cody Gakpo will add another dimension to their attacking play, but Mohamed Salah is still the main man up front.

He has 16 goals to his credit in all competitions this term and another bwin price boost of 4/1 for the Egypt winger to score first will feature in many Brentford vs Liverpool betting tips.

Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Robertson, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Thiago, Henderson, Elliott, Salah, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Nunez.

Midfielder Fabinho is set to return after missing Friday’s victory over Leicester due to the birth of his first child.

Left-back Andy Robertson is expected to be fit after a dead leg against the Foxes, midfielder Harvey Elliott will be assessed following a knock, while new forward Cody Gakpo could technically be involved but is more likely to debut in the FA Cup next weekend.
