Liverpool Suffer 5th League Loss in 3-1 Defeat to Brentford 

Liverpool’s 2022/2023 poor league form continued on Monday evening, following a 3-1 defeat at Brentford.

It is their fifth defeat of the season after 17 matches, as the gap between them and the top-four teams widens.

Despite the absence of Ivan Toney for the home side, they comfortably put Liverpool to the sword at the Brentford Community Stadium, just like the two Manchester clubs this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s men would also have themselves to blame with their poor defending and wastefulness in front of goal.

A 19th minute own goal by Ibrahima Konate and a Yoane Wissa header three minutes before the break set the Bees well on their way to victory.

The Red’s manager made three substitutions after the recess, ejecting Virgil van Dijk, Naby Keita and Konstatinos Tsimikas for Joel Matip, Harvey Elliott and Andrew Robertson respectively, in a bid to shake things up.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain responded just five minutes later with a goal for the visitors to give them a fighting chance, but that was all it was, as David Raya in goal for Brentford did enough to maintain his side’s lead in the game.

With six minutes left on the clock, Thomas Frank’s men doubled their lead through Bryan Mbeumo who had been a torn in Liverpool’s flesh, killing any hope of visitors snatching a point.

Liverpool sit sixth on the log with 28 points, four points off the last Champions League qualification spot occupied by Manchester United who welcome Bournemouth to Old Trafford tomorrow.
