At Saturday’s 12.30 pm start at the Gtech Community Stadium, Liverpool will play Brentford, allowing them to extend their lead atop the Premier League standings briefly.

With last weekend’s 3-1 victory over Burnley, the Reds reclaimed first place, and with the previous weekend’s 2-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers, the Bees allayed any escalating relegation concerns.

Betting tips: Brentford x Liverpool

Check out our predictions of the day for Brentford vs. Liverpool

Prediction 1: Brentford x Liverpool / Liverpool to win

Even if Frank’s squad manages to go on the board first, there’s only going to be one winner in the capital since Liverpool has grabbed a league-high 19 points after falling behind, and no Premier League club has lost more points from winning situations than Brentford (26 this season).

Despite Liverpool’s defensive woes as of late, Klopp’s squad should win their third straight match at the Gtech Community Stadium and take a commanding lead in the league.

Prediction 2: Brentford x  Liverpool / Liverpool to score over 2.5 goals

It’s tough to ignore Liverpool in the match result market these days. However, it would help if you supported the away team in scoring three goals to win significantly. Only two of the Bees’ home games this season have gone under the 2.5-goal mark, in contrast to most of the Merseysiders’ games (66 percent).

Prediction 3: Brentford x Liverpool / Jota to score anytime

With Salah out with an injury, the Reds’ forward trio of Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota, and Luis Diaz has scored three goals or more in four of their previous five Premier League games. With Salah’s comeback imminent, it’s doubtful that production will decline.

In November, Klopp started players with experience at set pieces in Liverpool’s 3-0 home victory over Brentford. Therefore, Diaz, who has benched that game, is again likely to take the blame. Brentford scored 19 goals last season from their free-kicks and corners, so the German could be looking forward to another encounter in which they try to disturb Liverpool’s rhythm with fouls.

Bets on Diogo Jota to score are also worth considering. Past Saturday, the Portuguese forward made it five goals in his past six games with a header against Burnley. He had scored in the 3-0 victory against Brentford at Anfield.
