Paul Merson has given his prediction for the upcoming match between Liverpool and Brentford.
The Reds are currently sitting in 3rd place in the Premier League table, while the Bees are 13th with 23 points.
Ahead of the game, Merson has shared his thoughts, backing Jurgen Klopp’s side to celebrate a win over the rivals.
“It was a bad result for Brentford against Southampton as they were well-beaten at the St. Mary’s Stadium,” the pundit said (via Metro UK).
“Before that, they lost a few games here and there, but they were never on the end of a hammering, so this could well turn out to be a wake-up call for them.
“Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will be unavailable for Liverpool due to their involvement in the 2022 AFCON, but they should still have miles too much for Brentford, so I expect them to win this one comfortably.”
Paul Merson’s prediction: Liverpool 3-0 Brentford
