Liverpool v Brentford: match preview | Premier League


Albert Stubbins, the only footballer to feature on the cover of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s album, scored the winner when Liverpool last hosted Brentford at Anfield in the league. That was in October 1946. Seventy-six years on, Jürgen Klopp takes charge of Liverpool for the 350th time boasting the highest win percentage (60.74%) of any manager in the club’s league history. With Manchester City or Chelsea, or both, guaranteed to drop points when they meet on Saturday, Klopp will be desperately seeking an improvement on Thursday’s display against Arsenal to take advantage.
