Liverpool must appreciate Brighton’s win over Manchester United more than the Seagulls themselves because it blew open the top-four race a bit, and Liverpool can throw a hat in the ring now.
The Kops have managed to string fine wins together, including a mesmerising top-four one over Tottenham.
They had to wait till the last kick of the game and then a hard-fought 1-0 win inspired by Mohammed Salah over Fulham in midweek.
The Bees have achieved their primary aim for the season, which is to have some Premier League stability.
And now they’re considering an unlikely European football push.
With twelve points to fight for, Brentford can gatecrash the Conference League spot, but they will need help from surrounding teams.
Brentford’s run-in includes a game against West Ham at the Community Stadium and then another London derby against a direct rival (as things stand), Tottenham, and this could well be their shock ticket to Europe.
Liverpool knows this game won’t be an easy one.
But on current form, the hosts should leverage the Anfield noise as well as the quality options upfront to do a number on Thomas Frank and his brave Bees on Saturday when they meet.
The options upfront for Liverpool are amazing.
Luis Diaz is back, and he’s giving something totally different to the Liverpool attack. Diogo Jota is fit and ready to rumble, while Cody Gakpo is beginning to prove his worth.
Darwin Nunez is another player that we expect much from; he could be immense next season.
Ivan Toney is the man for Brentford. He is into double figures for goals this term, and he’s not ready to stop yet.
Liverpool’s defence is as porous as it comes; you expect them to concede against teams that take the fight to them.
Brentford hammered Liverpool when they met at the Community Stadium.
It was a huge night for the Bees, but will Liverpool be out for revenge?
The Kops love to start with fury, but if Brentford weathers the storm, can Liverpool contain the counterattack?
