Liverpool vs Brentford line-up – 2 doubts and 2 big decisions to make

Liverpool have some late fitness calls to make before the Reds host Brentford on Saturday night.
Liverpool remain with a broadly similar squad each time and have won their last five Premier League games.
A win on Saturday would put the Reds just a point behind fourth-placed Man United, despite having played twice more than Erik ten Hag’s side.
Brighton are also still in Champions League qualification and would finish the season two points ahead of Liverpool if both sides win all of their remaining games. With Man United and Brighton both playing after Liverpool at the weekend, Saturday’s game at least offers Liverpool the chance to put pressure on their rivals.
Here’s how Jurgen Klopp’s side could line up against Brentford.

There were injury issues to emerge, with Klopp revealing in his press conference:

Jordan Henderson is a doubt after getting “a scan” on Thursday

Liverpool’s XI vs Brentford

After making three changes to his line-up against Fulham, Klopp is set to return to a more regular XI for Thomas Frank’s visit to Brentford.
The Reds boss lacks quality midfield options at the moment, with Henderson potentially out and Thiago recovering from surgery. After the announcement of his departure at the end of the season, James Milner is a player who could join the team.
However, Harvey Elliott is arguably more likely to regain his place in right midfield as Klopp looks set to challenge for the honor next season.
In attack, Jota is unlikely to start after Klopp said the Portuguese ‘can’t do much in training’.

Here are the key points of this planned XI:

Elliott should replace Henderson, which is doubtful

Here’s how Liverpool would line up:

Alison; Alexandre-Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Elliot, Jones; Salah, Nunez, Gakpo

There’s no place for Luis Diaz in either of the two planned starting line-ups as it looks unlikely the winger will start three times in seven days after more than six months on the touchline.
However, if the Colombian is fit enough for Klopp to suit him, he will fight for a spot on the left flank with Jota – even if fitness allows. Important decisions for the manager. Behind one of them, Andy Robertson is almost certain to return to the team, while Curtis Jones should start his eighth game in a row:

Jota to return to the left

If in shape, Henderson to start with Jones and Fabinho Milner on Standby

It seems that Klopp will have to make several decisions at the end of the day while Liverpool is preparing for their game in the Premier League against Brentford.
What is sure, however, is that the Reds will stick to their new style that sees them play with three defenders while in possession and, hopefully, the winning formula continues.
