Liverpool and Brentford face high expectations in the attacking aspect as they meet at Anfield for their Sunday Premier League showdown. The Reds endured a dramatic five-goal defeat against Toulouse in the Europa League on Thursday, while Brentford secured a thrilling victory over West Ham United in their London derby last weekend.
Jurgen Klopp will set his men up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make several changes to his first XI for this game. Diogo Jota, Ryan Gravenberch, Wataru Endo, Darwin Nunez, Virgil Van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate, Kostas Tsimikas, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alisson will all play from the start of this home encounter.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted XI Vs Brentford
Alisson will function in between the sticks for the Reds as he looks to earn a clean sheet at home. Virgil Van Dijk will play alongside Ibrahima Konate at the centre of the Liverpool backline as they try to keep the opposition at bay throughout the 90 minutes.
Trent-Alexander Arnold will operate as the right-back while Kostas Tsimikas continues to impress on the other side as the left-back.
Joe Gomez and Joel Matip will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Wataru Endo, Dominik Szoboszlai and Ryan Gravenberch will operate as Klopp’s primary central midfielders as they try to establish their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park. All three of them have to move the ball well if they want to create enough chances for Liverpool to earn a convincing win at Anfield.
Custis Jones and Harvey Elliot will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if required.
Diogo Jota will try to catch the eye as the left-winger while Mohamed Salah will look to put his pace to good use on the right flank.
Darwin Nunez will spearhead the Merseyside club’s attack up top. The Uruguay international will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for his team.
Cody Gakpo will take a spot on the bench as he waits for a chance to impress in the final third.
