Liverpool are hoping to continue their rediscovered touch of form when they host Brentford in the last English Premier League game on Saturday.
The reds have gone on an admirable seven-game unbeaten run since losing 4-1 to Manchester City on April 1.
After 5 straight wins, Jurgen Klopp’s side have risen to fifth place on the English Premier League table with 59 points, four away from the UCL spots.
Brentford on the other hand snapped a three-game losing streak and are unbeaten in their last 3 games, leaving them in 9th place with 50 points.
This is a revenge mission for Liverpool after they were convincingly beaten 3-1 by Brentford in the reverse fixture in January.
After a terrible start to the season, key forward Mohamed Salah has scored 12 goals in the last 20 games since the World Cup.
His revival has been key for Liverpool as a positive result here can keep their hopes of a top four finish alive.
Brentford’s recent slump killed their hopes of a debut appearance in the Europa League but Thomas Frank’s side are confident they can avoid defeat here.
