Hello and welcome to our up-to-the-minute coverage of Brentford vs Liverpool in the Premier League live from the Brentford Community Stadium.
Brentford have not beaten Liverpool since November 1938 and their clash this evening will be the first time the two sides have gone head-to-head in the top flight since 1947.
Liverpool came out on top all four times they’ve played each other in the cup since then, scoring 14 goals in total, demonstrating that history is firmly on their side.
The Bees have had a good start to the season, however, and are currently sat 10th in the Premier League after an opening day win against Arsenal and an impressive 2-0 away win at Wolves last weekend.
They put seven past League Two Oldham in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, with four goals from 22-year-old Finnish forward Marcus Forss, who will be hoping to keep his place in the starting line-up today.
Liverpool are currently top of the Premier League after Chelsea and Man Utd both slipped up earlier and lost 1-0 to Man City and Aston Villa respectively.
They’ll be looking to continue their very strong start to the season with six wins out of seven in all competitions,
Their last competitive defeat came in the quarter-final of the Champions League in April when they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid.
The Reds have also scored three goals in each of their last four games, which means it could be a difficult night in goal for David Raya, despite only conceding two goals in their five Prem games so far.
This should be a very exciting Premier League clash, so strap in and we’ll bring you team news and live build-up as we countdown to kick-off.
