Liverpool will look to close the gap on the top four when they go head-to-head with Brentford this weekend.

Five straight wins in the Premier League has given the Reds hope that they can still qualify for the Champions League this term, but chances are slim.

Mohamed Salah’s first half penalty was enough to secure all three points against Fulham in midweek, as the Egyptian scored at Anfield for the eighth consecutive match across all competitions and close the gap on Newcastle and Manchester United, who occupy the final two UCL spots.

Brentford meanwhile, made it back-to-back wins with an injury time winner against Nottingham Forest at the weekend to all but secure a top-half finish. Thomas Frank’s side have bounced back in recent weeks after a slump in form saw them go six games without a win (D3, L3) as they look to finish strongly and maybe even sneak a European spot themselves.

Brentford team news

Christian Norgaard, Pontus Jansson and Keane Lewis-Potter are still all unavailable for Thomas Frank’s side, while Kristoffer Ajer could be fit enough for the bench.

Ivan Toney needs just one more goal to become just the third player to score 10+ goals home and away in the Premier League this season after Erling Haaland and Harry Kane. It would be the second ever Premier League campaign to see three players score 10+ home and away goals after 1993-94 (5 players – Andy Cole, Alan Shearer, Matt Le Tissier, Chris Sutton and Ian Wright).

Liverpool vs Brentford: What’s being said?

Jordan Henderson has praised Liverpool’s hard work behind the scenes for their return to form and their five game winning run in the Premier League.

We’re playing some great stuff at times, tactically we’ve done a few tweaks which have helped us and then you gain a little bit of momentum with confidence and things like that. When you pick up results, it’s always easier, it’s always nice to get wins under the belt and from that you gain a bit of momentum, you gain a bit of confidence and things change. We’ve worked really hard all season to try to change that but it’s been working well for the last five games or so, if not more. Hopefully we can just continue that now until the end of the season.”

“We’ve got to be pleased. We’re picking up results, the performances are much better. Yes, we can improve, of course, but we just want to keep doing that from now until the end of the season. “When you’re picking up wins, that confidence comes, the momentum comes a little bit and you can sense that a little bit over the last few games. But it’s not easy, you’ve still got to work for it, you’ve got to work hard. Every game in the Premier League is a different challenge and we’ve just got to keep our heads down, keep working hard and see where it takes us come the end.”
