Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Brentford and Liverpool take on each other at Brentford Community Stadium in the opening match of round 25. The Bees aim to build on a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton, but they will have a big fish to fry against the league leaders. Returnee Ivan Toney has already found his goal-scoring touch, meaning that the opposition back-line should have him at bay. Yoane Wissa is back from international duty, while all Joshua Da Silva, Bryan Mbeumo, Aaron Hickey, and Kevin Schade miss out with injuries.
The Reds, on the other hand, are leading the chase for the Premier League trophy. Liverpool proved their worth in a 3-1 win over Burnley and even though Mohamed Salah is unlikely to recover in time to face the capital club, away win should be considered. Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold should be fit for the match, while first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker is back to contention.
Highlighted Player (Saman Ghoddos):
Saman Ghoddos is a product of FC Malmo football academy, but he started playing for IF Limhamn Bunkeflo at senior level. After scoring four goals in 41 appearances for the club the Swedish attacker moved to Treleborg, but he did not spend too much time at the club. In 2014 he signed a deal with Syrianska and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the Sodertalje Fotbollsarena outfit.
Saman Ghoddos, who was born in Malmo on September 6, 1996 played for Syrianska from 2014 to 2016 and then he moved to Ostersunds. The Swedish striker, who is used as an attacking midfielder as well, scored ten goals in 27 appearances for Ostersunds in the 2016 Allsvenskan campaign and he impressed in the 2017/2018 Europa League qualifiers.
Saman Ghoddos netted three goals in the process and helped the Swedish club book their place in the group stages of the European competition. Speaking of his personal life, you should bear in mind that Saman’s parents were born in Iran.
Highlighted Team (Liverpool):
Founded back in 1892, Liverpool are one of England’s and world’s most famous clubs. The Reds hold a high-profile rivalry with Everton and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the Merseyside derby.
The Reds welcome their opponents at Anfield and it has to be noted that they have already won 18 first division trophies. Liverpool were on the verge of lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and left the Reds without a title.
Liverpool won one of their last Champions League trophy's in 2005, with the team coming from three goals behind to beat Milan in a historic clash in Istanbul. The Reds have clinched six European Cups and it is no surprise they are regarded as one of the greatest European clubs.
The likes of Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Paul Ince, Ian Rush, Graeme Souness, Sami Hyypia and Luis Suarez are some of the most notable footballers to have represented the club over the years. The club’s anthem is You’ll Never Walk Alone and their shirt colour is red.
