Liverpool vs Brentford : The world will be watching, hoping for a repeat of the last time the Reds and Bees battled, when they meet again at Anfield on Sunday (Watch live, 9 am ET on USA and online via NBCSports.com).
3-3 was the final score at the Brentford Community Stadium back in September, as Brentford went ahead first, then Liverpool scored twice to go 2-1 up, followed by one from Brentford, another from Liverpool and, finally, Yoane Wissa’s dramatic equalizer in the 82nd minute.
After that famous, memorable result, Brentford sat 9th in the Premier League table after taking at least one point from five of their first six games. The Bees have since slipped down to 13th ahead of matchweek. Liverpool have fallen as well, from 1st (one point above Manchester City) to 3rd (11 back of Man City).

Liverpool vs Brentford prediction
The reason Brentford were Liverpool’s equals the first time around was down to the fact they weren’t scared to defend aggressively, to make every touch uncomfortable. Unfortunately for the Bees, that approach hasn’t led to nearly as many goals scored in recent weeks, and the Reds are hardly the side you want to face when it’s time to rally. Liverpool 3-1 Brentford.
