On Monday, January 2, Brentford Community Stadium will host a match between Brentford and Liverpool in the 19th round of the English Premier League.
Brentford drew at home against Tottenham in one of the last rounds and once again confirmed that it is a very uncomfortable opponent for the leading English clubs. The team ranks in the middle of the APL standings, but rightly has ambitions to climb as high as possible.
In the new match, the home team will certainly play second choice, but the game on the counterattack and standard positions may well bring Brentford a positive result. In addition, it is very important for the Hornets to play reliably and disciplined near their goal.
Liverpool continues to attempt to return to the top four in the English league table, but in order to do so, Jurgen Klopp’s team needs to keep winning and lose points as rarely as possible. Of course, the meeting against Brentford is seen by the Reds as one in which it is imperative to take all three points.
Before the opening of the winter transfer window, the Reds announced the signing of PSV striker Cody Gakpo, who should strengthen the team’s attacking potential. And without the Dutchman, Liverpool’s attack looks very formidable but will now be even stronger. And in the match of the new tour the visitors will certainly try to confirm this thesis and score as many goals as possible.
Londoners in the current draw, on the road were able to get 3 wins, beating opponents from the second half of the standings. But the games with the mid-tier and nearest rivals have not been successful so far. The Nottingham side certainly can’t claim to be serious contenders this season, but at home they are ready to give battle to any club of the APL, in what Liverpool have already seen in the 13th matchday. “Nottingham Forest” won in 3 home matches of the APL, and in all with the same score of 1-0. I assume that Steve Cooper again will build the game in the same manner, and will try not to lose at least and not let the visitors to score.
