Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Liverpool will be aiming to keep their Champions League hopes alive when they host Brentford to their Anfield on Saturday afternoon. The Reds showed character in a 4-3 win over Tottenham, with Diogo Jota scoring a late winner, but they face yet another must-win situation against Ivan Toney and Co. Diogo Jota should be recalled to the starting XI, while both Stefan Bajcetic and Roberto Firmino remain in the recovery room. Naby Keita remains doubtful.
The Bees, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Chelsea and, no doubt, they want to put the icing on the cake on a very successful Premier League campaign. Liverpool, though, were impressive in the national championship in April and we predict that they are going to pick up vital three points from the match. As for the visiting side, all Jansson, Ajer, Norgaard, and Lewis-Potter remain in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Mohamed Salah):
Mohamed Salah is considered one of the best African players. Salah began his senior career at El Mokawloon, scoring 11 goals in 41 league appearances for the club and in 2012 he moved to Europe, signing a four-year deal with Swiss side Basel.
The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a striker as well was producing outstanding displays for the RotBlau from 2012 to 2014 and, as a result, Chelsea chiefs decided to sign him on 26 January, 2015 for a fee of £11 million. Mohamed Salah, though, failed to impress in the Premier league and one year later he was sent on loan to Fiorentina.
After making 16 league appearances for the Viola in the Serie A, the left-footed winger signed a loan deal with Roma on 6 August, 2015. The Romans made the contract permanent on 3 August, 2016. Speaking of his international career, Salah made his Egypt debut on 3 September, 2011 in a 2-1 loss to Sierra Leone. It has to be noted that he was named Roma’s player of the season (2015/2016).
Highlighted Team (Brentford):
Based in London, Brentford compete in the Championship and they were founded in 1898. Griffin Park has been the home ground of the club since 1904 and the capacity of the venue is 12,300.
The Bees have yet to play in the Premier League and it has to be noted that they made it to the FA Cup sixth round on four occasions (1937/1938, 1945/1946,1948/1949, 1988/1989). Brentford played in the League Cup round 4 in the 1982/1983 and 2010/2011 season and that is the club’s biggest success in the competition.
Brentford’s main rivals are Fulham and Queens Park Rangers and they take on each other in the West London Derby. The rivalry with the Cottagers is probably the biggest and you should bear in mind that the clashes between the two teams have their history of crowd violence. The colour of Brentford’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
