We simulated Liverpool vs Brentford to get a Premier League score prediction



We simulated Liverpool vs Brentford to get a Premier League score prediction

Liverpool play at Anfield for the third time in a week on Saturday when they take on Brentford in the Premier League.

A 1-0 victory over Fulham on Wednesday made it five wins on the bounce for the Reds with Mohamed Salah scoring his 18th league goal of the season.

Next up for Jurgen Klopp’s side is Brentford, who have had an impressive season and, who, like their opponents, are in good form and in the race for a European place.

Liverpool will be seeking revenge, though, after they lost the reverse fixture back in January.

So, can get the Reds get their own back for that defeat and move within one point of the Champions League places? Let’s take a look….

Liverpool vs Brentford score predicted by simulation:

To complete this simulation, we used FIFA 23 and updated the squads with the latest injuries and suspensions.

We predict that Liverpool could set up in a 3-2-2-3 formation, with their line-up as follows: Alisson; Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho; Henderson, Jones; Salah, Gakpo, Diaz.

We predict that the Bees could line up in a 4-3-3 formation, with their line-up as follows: Raya; Hickey, Pinnock, Mee, Henry; Dasilva, Janelt, Jensen; Mbuemo, Toney, Wissa.

Liverpool lacked a cutting edge in front of goal against Fulham as plenty of chances went begging, but that wasn’t the case this time round, going two goals ahead in the opening 16 minutes of the game. Cody Gakpo handed the Reds the lead after just five minutes, with the forward receiving the ball from Trent Alexnader-Arnold just outside the box before swivelling past his marker and finding the bottom corner.

Alexander-Arnold was the biggest attacking threat for Liverpool, who looked dangerous whenever he had the ball, and he set up the second as well, threading a fantastic reverse pass into the path of Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian cut past Ben Mee to enter the box and curled his shot around David Raya to find the bottom corner.

The situation went from bad to worse for Brentford in the 39th minute when Ethan Pinnock was sent off for a dangerous lunge on Luis Diaz. The Colombian was okay to continue, though, and he set up the Reds’ third and netted their fourth on either side of half-time as the floodgates opened.

Diaz skipped past two defenders on the left before drilling a cross into the box, and a spill from Raya saw the ball fall to Curtis Jones on the goalline, where he couldn’t miss. And just after the restart, Diaz made it four, with Jordan Henderson sliding a ball through to the winger, who placed his strike past Raya at the near post.

With 23 minutes to go, the Bees pulled a goal back, with Bryan Mbuemo’s thunderous effort from just inside the box finding the top corner and leaving Alisson with no chance. Jurgen Klopp then made a number of subs; two of whom both scored to hit Brentford for six.

Darwin Nunez came off the bench to notch the Reds’ fifth, flicking Andrew Robertson’s corner across the face of goal and into the bottom corner. And in the 90th minute, Alexander-Arnold led a counte-rattack before finding Harvey Elliott, who smashed the ball home to top off a fantastic afternoon.

FIFA 23 predicted score: Liverpool 6-1 Brentford

Here are the full-time match stats:

FIFA 23 predicts that Liverpool could run riot at Anfield, winning 6-1 in the simulation. The Reds boasted their attacking talent with six different goalscorers, while Alexander-Arnold flourished once again in midfield, grabbing a hat trick of assists.

Neymar and Lionel Messi could join Liverpool rivals and it may hand Jürgen Klopp a boost

Whatever Liverpool does this summer, there will be more glamorous moves that take place elsewhere. Around the rest of the Premier League, there will be plenty of movement — potentially with some star names arriving.

Newcastle United has largely made clever and under-the-radar signings so far under its new ownership, but 90Min reports that its Saudi investors are keen on a ‘marquee’ transfer this time around and are therefore showing an interest in taking Neymar, 31, from PSG.

Meanwhile, Chelsea is said to be among the clubs keen on signing Argentina forward Lionel Messi, 35, when his PSG contract expires this summer, according to Football.London, though Barcelona, should it find the cash, must be the favorite.

Messi, it seems, will certainly be on the move, while there is a growing suspicion that Neymar will depart too. The Brazilian liked an Instagram post suggesting PSG was a ‘small club’ this week and fans of the French club gathered outside his house to chant for him to leave the Ligue 1 leaders.

“Will we see Neymar next season? Believe me, I am very focused on the last five games coming up and we will see what happens,” PSG head coach Christophe Galtier said today. That was hardly convincing.

While moves to the Premier League will draw plenty of attention should they materialize, Liverpool will not be in the running for either of the big names — for a variety of obvious reasons.

Instead, while Liverpool will spend big, it will focus its energy on up-and-coming talents with plenty to prove, who will fit seamlessly into Jürgen Klopp’s style of play.

Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain.

Liverpool has made transfer mistakes before, of course, and in the short term, perhaps an expensive move for Messi or Neymar might pay off for one of its domestic rivals.

But in the longer term, Liverpool would be in the driving seat for sustainable success by sticking to its approach and finding gems that cost less and are far more suitable.

Todd Boehly’s scattergun approach — which has already seen his eyes drawn by Cristiano Ronaldo before Thomas Tuchel made it clear that signing the aging Portugal star was a bad idea — has already been costly, but it would be no surprise to see him make a pitch to Messi.

Neymar, meanwhile, has been linked with a move to Manchester United as well as a part of the potential Qatari takeover (via the Daily Express), which would be another transfer that Liverpool would not be concerned by.

If anything, if its rivals for European football were to make expensive transfer deals like these, Liverpool should welcome them — as long as its own business is spot on this summer, big names ultimately won’t make as much difference.

Additionally, if Newcastle was to move for Neymar, for instance, that would seemingly signal a change in its up-until-now steady and sensible approach.

While it has money to burn, a move like that would be a risk. Like with Messi and Chelsea, it might pay off, but even that would only be short-term. In the bigger picture, Liverpool’s long-term vision would only be boosted.


Liverpool ‘cool interest in Moises Caicedo’

Liverpool are reportedly moving their attention away from the signing of Brighton & Hove Albion’s Moises Caicedo as they focus targets such as Alexis Mac Allister.

Liverpool have reportedly cooled their interest in Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo, handing a boost to the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea in the race for his services.

The Ecuadorian has been on the minds of top clubs since the start of this Premier League campaign – one in which the player has been a key part of a Seagulls side chasing down European football.

Having played 31 matches in the league for the South Coast, it seems as if a host of Brighton’s Premier League counterparts have seen enough to be tempted into a move for the 21-year-old – although Jurgen Klopp’s side could be out of the running.

According to Football Insider, Liverpool have moved their attention away from the signing of Caicedo this summer and are instead focusing on securing a deal for Alexis Mac Allister.

The report adds that the Reds have been in contact with representatives of midfield targets Mason Mount and World Cup winner Mac Allister since the turn of the year, however the same cannot be said in terms of Caicedo.

Liverpool will continue their late push for a Champions League spot when they welcome Brentford to Anfield on Saturday evening – a win in Merseyside would be their sixth-straight success in the league.
