Liverpool vs Brentford LIVE!

Liverpool could be in for another stern test as they return to Premier League action at fortress Anfield this afternoon. The Reds are looking to regather some lost momentum after a frustrating week in which they needed a dramatic and emotional last-gasp equaliser from Luis Diaz to avoid a shock defeat at Luton before being stunned by a Europa League loss in Toulouse that featured yet more frustrating VAR drama.

Jurgen Klopp’s side had previously notched up four successive victories across all competitions to underline their renewed status as title challengers and will be eager to return to winning ways today with a trip to defending champions Manchester City coming up straight after the international break, with captain Virgil van Dijk back from illness.

Liverpool have long been a truly dominant proposition at home and Brentford have not won on this ground since all the way back in 1937, though they head to Merseyside on Sunday boasting a three-game winning streak to turn around a concerning start to the season under Thomas Frank, who makes two changes from the triumph over West Ham. Follow Liverpool vs Brentford live below, with insight and analysis from Standard Sport’s Dom Smith at Anfield!

Van Dijk returns for Liverpool but no Konate

Van Dijk does return for Liverpool as expected, but Ibrahima Konate misses out entirely in a surprise as Joel Matip partners the captain in central defence.

With no Alexis Mac Allister, Ryan Gravenberch or Curtis Jones, Klopp opts for Cody Gakpo in a midfield role in what is a very attacking Reds lineup.

Otherwise it’s pretty much as expected, with Liverpool’s big hitters returning after the Toulouse loss. No Joe Gomez in the squad though.

It’s also an extremely youthful bench, with Luis Diaz and Caoimhin Kelleher the only players over the age of 20.

16-year-old Trey Nyoni is a very highly-rated prospect signed from Leicester in September.
