Team News

Liverpool continue to cope without Africa Cup of Nations representatives Salah, Mane and Naby Keita, while none of Nat Phillips, Thiago Alcantara, Harvey Elliott or Divock Origi will return in time either.

Klopp's midfield selection did not go down too well with the Anfield faithful in midweek, and the hosting manager will certainly consider swapping James Milner out for either Curtis Jones or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Trent Alexander-Arnold also appeared a little rusty after recovering from COVID-19 infection, so Neco Williams could very well push for a place at right-back or perhaps further forward this weekend.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Klopp; Williams, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Henderson, Fabinho, Jones; Jota, Firmino, Minamino

As for Brentford, Frank Onyeka remains away on Africa Cup of Nations duty, while Sergi Canos exited the Southampton game early with an apparent hamstring problem but ought to be fine here.

Frank is also having to cope with the absences of Josh Dasilva, David Raya, Charlie Goode and Mathias Jorgensen, but there is more optimism over Rico Henry's availability.

Yoane Wissa will hope that his earlier heroics against Liverpool could see him rewarded with a rare start here, but Frank will be unlikely to shuffle the pack too much.
Brentford possible starting lineup:
Fernandez; Ajer, Jansson, Pinnock; Roerslev, Janelt, Norgaard, Jensen, Henry; Wissa, Toney

Prediction: Liverpool 2-0 Brentford
