Brentford vs LiverpoolEnglish Premier League, KO: 17:30 Sep 25, 2021, Brentford Community Stadium
LIVERPOOL will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the new season when they take on Brentford on Saturday teatime.
The Reds are among the early front runners in the Premier League, winning four of their opening five top-flight fixtures to keep pace with both Chelsea and Manchester United at the top of the table.
Jurgen Klopp's side continued their strong start to the campaign with a comfortable 3-0 Carabao Cup win at Norwich on Tuesday, on a night where my recommended goal bet banked profit.
Liverpool return to league duty on Saturday when they make the journey south to meet Brentford for the first time ever in the top-tier of English football.
Thomas Frank's team enjoyed a dream start to life in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Arsenal and they won by the same scoreline at Wolves last weekend.
In fact, the newly-promoted Bees have been beaten just once in five league outings thus far so they should provide Liverpool with a stern test of their title credentials.
Liverpool have won nine of their last 10 Premier League matches and another Reds triumph is trading at 18/35 with SBK.
Liverpool are rightfully red-hot favourites on Saturday evening but I suspect this contest could be closer than the odds suggest so I'm going to swerve the match result market and instead head to the Bet Builder.
Combining Liverpool double chance, over zero Liverpool goals and over one Brentford card will bring about a backable 4/5 (Bet 365) shot.
Indeed, Brentford have conceded only two goals in five Premier League matches this term, but Liverpool will represent their toughest opponent to date.
The Reds look more like their old selves this season and their attacking qualities could be key to solving the Brentford puzzle in west London this weekend.
Klopp's star-studded side have scored 2+ goals in 6/7 outings this term so I'm happy to combine a solitary Liverpool strike and Liverpool to avoid defeat on Saturday evening.
I'll complete the combination with over one Brentford booking – the Bees have gone into the book at least twice in each of their last three league games, picking one red card in the process.
What's more, we have a favourable referee appointment here in Stuart Attwell, who was on the division's more card-happy operators last season, averaging over four cards per-game.
One player who could be worth considering for a caution is Christian Norgaard – the tough-tackling Brentford midfielder has already totted two cards in five outings this term and is bet priced at a tasty 7/2 (Bet 365) to add to that tally.
Finally, I'll delve into the anytime goalscorer market and take the even-money (1/1) on offer with SportNation for Mohamed Salah to get on the scoresheet.
The Egyptian sharpshooter has scored in each of his last four appearances for Liverpool and he looks nicely priced to continue his hot-streak in front of goal at the Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday.
