    KO 17 : 00

    Venue Brentford Community Stadium

    TV Sky


    Having come so close in recent years Brentford finally made it to the PL in the first season in their new stadium which they share with London Irish - who when playing at their old ground in Sunbury had proper draught Dublin Guinness on tap *. <cheers>

    Brentford have had a decent start to the PL season with a 2-2-1 record and only conceding 2 goals leaving them in 9th and absolutely thrashed Oldham tonight .

    Since we have Porto on Tuesday think there may be some changes with half an eye on that .

    PL 4-1-0

    CL 1-0-0

    LC 1-0-0

    This one will be difficult to manage but porto is the one we have to be right for.

    Big Al.
    Trent
    Matip
    VVD
    Robertson
    Fabinho
    Henderson
    (some useless ****er)
    Mane
    Jota
    Salah

    Firmino likely on the bench. konate, gomez, some other useless ****er, milner, kelleher, Then its a hard choice with mini-me and origi and tsimikas.

    The CL game with 5 subs and extra subs makes it easier accommodate this squad.

    would we try a 4231 here?

    What midfield options do we have after midweek debacle.

    Fabinho.
    Henderson.
    Jones? Did ok in midfield playing deep not great but like its a big ask.
    minamino - put the others to shame which says a lot.

    Thiago out.
    elliott out.
    Keita not exactly arsed but was off at HT, is he now out?
    milner? was ill
    Ox - was so poor he is behind the injured and ill players for me.
    morton - put his hand up as a 18 year old whos not terrible.


    so I guess 5 options for 3 slots including minamino and milner. Ox IMo shouldn't even be considered after that midweek showing.

    would you guys try mini me and a 4231?

    I expect us to stick with 4-3-3 whenever possible even if that is then "tweaked" so I expect Fab , henderson and Keita or Jones .
    I saw Keita checking / stretching his ankle but that was about 10 mins before HT so think he had a slight knock but was taken off more as a precaution than anything else .

    Cursed RB spot. Trent was ill, Milner takes his place then he's ill.
    Perhaps they've been snogging...

    Tbh, I'm surprised any germs would have the nerve to go near Milner.

    I think he kicked the ground when he tried a forward pass so he is probably out for 6 months.

    morton put him and ox to shame. ketia was "steady" again. was moved over to RCM cos ox was disasterous so he did a little but not enough imo.

    Morton jones and mini-me shut that game down last night.

    This is not going to be easy Brentford have lost only one game drew two.We are going to be too strong for them. My prediction : Brentford 0: 2 Liverpool.

    Brentford results

    Arsenal 2-0 - a pub team could have beaten arsenal that nihgt, they were all over the place.
    Palace 0-0 - credible result. Palace were also finding their feet.
    EFL Forest green 3-1 meh.
    villa 1-1 quite a good result that, villa started slow
    Brighton 0-1 Low scoring loss at home with laste winner. another decent result while not pulling up trees
    Wolves 2-0 with a second half red for brentod - a good result but wolves aint exactly much good now.
    EFL oldham 7-0 meh

    No disrespect to a side who look solid enough and hard working so much better than noriwch for example in terms of ability to get a result. Its a dream start to be 2-2-1 fr them.

    BUT

    this is a massive step up now for them. We are their first top 4 challenge so I expect them to be solid defensively but once we score this one is goign the same way as our palace and leeds results isn't it?

    As long as we have the work rate and no distraction from the next 2 games we really should be looking to this one as a win.

    We have VVD guys.

    Unlike yourself, Klopp trusts all our players so he'll go 433 with whatever is available
