Brentford v Liverpool: Tips, Predictions and Odds

Premier League table-toppers Liverpool could extend their advantage at the top to five points, at least for a matter of hours, when they travel to Brentford in the early kick-off on Saturday.

The Reds go into the weekend with a two-point buffer over second-placed Manchester City, albeit having played a game more, and are fresh from a comfortable 3-1 win over Burnley.

However, Liverpool's last visit to the capital ended in a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal at the start of the month and the Bees picked up an important 2-0 win away to Wolves last Saturday, so will be raring to go.

With renewed belief, Brentford can play their part in what should be a high-scoring match in the capital.

Brentford v Liverpool betting tips and predictions

Liverpool to win & over 3.5 goals - 11/5

One of the big talking points heading into this match at the Gtech Community Stadium is the potential return of Mo Salah to the Liverpool squad.

Salah has been out with a muscular injury sustained at the Africa Cup of Nations but could at least be on the bench away to Brentford.

But even if the Egyptian does not feature, Liverpool have the firepower to win a high-scoring match in West London.

Brentford's rearguard has not impressed this season with the club having kept just one clean sheet in 12 home games in the Premier League, while they had conceded at least two goals in four straight games before last Saturday's clash with Wolves.

That clean sheet at Molineux would have been warmly welcomed by Thomas Frank but they will have a much tougher time shutting out Liverpool.

The Reds are blessed with attacking depth and have scored an eye-watering 55 goals in 24 matches in the top flight this season.

Liverpool were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in their last away game but that was their only defeat in their last 13 matches across all competitions.

As part of that run, they won away to Arsenal in the FA Cup and ran out 4-0 winners on the road to Bournemouth.

They are a team full of goals and the best betting angle for the early kick-off against Brentford could be Liverpool to win and over 3.5 goals.

Neal Maupay to score at anytime - 3/1 

Punters may be tempted to back Liverpool ace Salah to score upon his return from injury but it is an in-form Brentford player that could offer more appeal.

Neal Maupay returned for his second spell with the Bees following a disappointing season with Everton and, after a slow start, he now appears to be a shrewd signing by Frank.

Maupay had gone the best part of 14 months without a goal before he opened his account for the season against West Ham in early November and he added another the following month in a home win over Luton.

However, it is since the turn of the year that Maupay has really come into his own, as he has netted five goals in six appearances to date in 2024, playing a pivotal role in the absence of fellow forwards Yoane Wissa, who was away at the Africa Cup of Nations, and the injured Bryan Mbeumo.

The 27-year-old is a man in form and can get on the scoresheet against Liverpool, even if that goal ends up being little more than a consolation strike.
