Brentford vs Liverpool Premier League predictions: Tips odds & team news
Liverpool hopes they can keep their Premier League title push going when they travel to face Brentford on Saturday at 12:30 pm (UK time).
Brentford vs Liverpool odds
*Odds correct as of 17:30 on February 16
Liverpool’s title charge took a bit of a knock in their defeat to Arsenal at the start of February, but the Reds will still feel confident that they can give Jürgen Klopp his second success in the division. It was the second time they had lost this season, ending a 15-game unbeaten streak since their defeat to Tottenham, before recovering with a 3-1 win over Burnley at home. Maybe it’s something about away trips to north London clubs.
The Reds have 15 more points at this stage of the Premier League season (54) than they had after 24 games last season (39). On three of the last four occasions in the top-flight that they’ve had 54+ points after 24 games, they have finished 2nd (1990-91, 2018-19 & 2021-22); the other was in 2019-20, when they had 70 and won the league.
They’ll be thankful that Brentford aren’t far up from the River Thames enough to be considered north. They are also in poor form. The Bees have lost 12 games this season and are in the relegation battle. After 23 games played, Brentford are just six points above the relegation zone — though it’s worth noting they have played fewer matches than the teams around them.

Brentford vs Liverpool Bet-Builder tip
While Mohamed Salah has been injured and at the Africa Cup of Nations, Diogo Jota has stepped up in front of goal. The Portuguese forward has scored five goals in his past six league games and also found the net in the 3-0 win over Brentford in November. You should expect goals in this game, too. The two previous Premier League meetings between these two sides at the Gtech Community Stadium have seen 10 goals scored. Brentford has found the net in each of their past nine games across all competitions, even if they haven’t been in the best of form.
