Liverpool vs Brentford Preview - A Must-win Match for Champions League Hopes

6th May 2023

With just four games left of the /23 season, Liverpool are chasing down football but will need results to go their way.

But first of all, the club must take care of their business, beginning with today at .

Liverpool are in the midst of their longest-running of the season, having won five games on the spin and are also unbeaten in their last seven games.

They face an impressive Brentford who look set to finish in the top half of the table for the first time in Premier League history.

The West London club have won their last two games but faces a tough end to the season, with the likes of Liverpool, and to play this month.

With 59 points, Liverpool are currently fifth and are four points adrift of in fourth who have one game in hand.

Three points for the Reds will place them just one point behind United with the ultimate pressure being put on Erik Ten Haag's men to take advantage of their games in hand. 

Liverpool have achieved great form of late but they could have left it too late which would deprive them of Champions League football for the first time since 2017.

Their last four games are now must-win bouts if they want any chance of playing in Europe's top competition next season.

Liverpool lost the return fixture in London in emphatic fashion, having lost 3-1 to Brentford.

Since arriving in the Premier League last season, they've proved a tough test for Liverpool with their physical play and pace causing a multitude of problems for the Liverpool defence at times.

The jewel of their system, in the form of Ivan Toney, has had the best campaign of his career, hitting 20 Premier League goals this season which only continues to fuel rumours that he may leave the club in the summer.

and Ibrahima Konate, who scored an own goal in the return fixture, will certainly have their hands full with the striker whose ability to link up play with Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa will be difficult to stop.

However, Liverpool's change of system has given the team a new lease of life and the return of has reignited the left-hand side of the attack that looks dangerous once again.

It'll be an entertaining match with a lot on the line for the side.

Liverpool v Brentford will be available to watch on Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Ultra HDR for UK viewers. 

LFC Globe Verdict

I think Liverpool will run out 3-1 winners in what I believe will be a competitive game.
