Liverpool vs BrentfordEnglish Premier League, KO: 17:30 May 6, 2023, Anfield
LIVERPOOL play their third home game in a row on Saturday night with a visit from Brentford and they still harbour an outside hope of snatching one of the Champions League spots.
Jurgen Klopp's side won that thriller against Spurs before edging out Fulham in midweek to make it five wins in a row. This run of form has come far too late to salvage a very poor season by their standards, but they will want to make it interesting with another success, with just three games to go after this.
The win over Fulham was far from a vintage win, but Jurgen Klopp was able to rotate a number of players and still get the three points, They are building a head of steam now.
For Brentford, they have picked up after a sticky spell where they went six games in a row without a win and only collected three points during that spell.
A superb 2-0 win at Chelsea was followed up with a comeback win over Nottingham Forest where they scored two goals in the last eight minutes to win the match.
Brentford have already won this season at Manchester City and drawn at Arsenal this season so they are very dangerous opponents.
How the bookies view it
Liverpool are heavy favourites at around 1/2 although there is a 18/35 price with 10bet.
Recent head to heads

Anything else catch the eye?
Brentford very rarely lie down against opponents and they will fancy their chances of returning to London with something. You can be sure they will have a go and create chances and, as stated, their record against the big boys away from home is very creditable.
Despite Liverpool's resurgence, they are just too short at 1/2 and goals could be the way to go here instead. While a repeat of last week's seven-goal thriller may be too much to ask for, go for Paddy Power's 5/4 on over 3.5 goals,
Given Brentford should be able to breach the home defence, back them to score before the 68th minute with bet365 at 5/6 too.
