Jurgen Klopp’s side are unbeaten in their last 13 Premier League matches in front of the Kop; winning each of the most recent four.
Meanwhile, the Reds have only lost one of their last 16 opening home league matches of a calendar year.
For that sole defeat, you must go back to January 2017 and a 3-2 reverse at the hands of an inspired Swansea City.
Although, they are without a win in three Premier League games, and have failed to record a clean sheet in six attempts.
Brentford will also be encouraged by the fact that Liverpool have failed to win their last two home league matches against newly promoted sides.
Thomas Frank’s men arrive at Anfield on the back of three defeats in four league outings, while they have conceded at least two goals in each of their last six away from home in the top-flight.
However, the Bees have won three of their six Premier League matches played on a Sunday. Of all teams to have played at least five games on the day, they are one of just four to have won at least half along with Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Liverpool vs Brentford: Match Stats
Once again, Liverpool will be lacking the firepower up front provided by Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane – both of whom are on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Diogo Jota is the man looking to step up in their absence; the former Wolves forward has netted four times in as many top-flight appearances at Anfield.
We can expect goals. There has been one in the first half of Brentford’s last five games, while Liverpool have scored after the break in each of their seven most recent outings.
The Bees know they will need to deny the Reds any opportunity to build momentum, and that may see them committing fouls in order to disrupt their flow.
Statistics suggest that Christian Norgaard could be heavily involved in this regard. Indeed, only Watford’s Emmanuel Dennis (38) has conceded more fouls than the Danish midfielder in the Premier League this season (37).
