It should be 4-2. Mane plays in Salah who opts to clip it over Raya, but also over the bar.

With Toney and Mbeumo up top you'd fancy Brentford to stay in the top-flight. It's not often you see VVD have such a tough night.

Alisson: “I think we can't stop now but we are doing a really good start to the season. This is really important. The most difficult moment in the season for us is the winter, so there is a long way until the end of the Premier League. We need to keep working hard and having the same mentality and just keep on going.”

Bees defender Kristoffer Ajer: “For me Virgil Van Dijk is the best defender in the world and Liverpool are one of the best teams in the world so it's going to be a great challenge and a very, very tough game. But we know that if we defend strongly we have players offensively that can create opportunities and score. Liverpool are big, big favourites but maybe that suits us well.”

Jurgen Klopp on Brentford: "High intensity, pressing like crazy, have a playing build-up but if the other team presses then they are not shy to go a bit more direct. In all positions, really exciting players. In the back three is probably the tallest in Europe – all three, massive players. All these kind of things. So, yeah, it’s a challenge. They are in a new stadium so they enjoy that as well. It’s an interesting thing and I really respect that a lot, but of course we go there for different reasons, not to tell them how much we like what they do. No, we want to get the points but we know it will be a tough one.”
