Brentford vs Liverpool: Premier League team news, line-ups and more live updates

"Follow the 2023/24 Premier League season with The Independent for every game and goal, including top teams and newcomers Luton Town."

The 2023/24 Premier League season is in full swing and you can stay up to date with every game and every goal right here with The Independent.

This season, Manchester City is aiming to defend their title and secure a historic fourth consecutive championship. Pep Guardiola's dominant City team, who also clinched the Champions League and FA Cup last season, will face tough competition from Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, and other teams as they strive for an unprecedented sixth league title in seven years.

In an incredible decade of progress, Luton Town is making their debut in the Premier League after rising from non-league football. They join Championship winners Burnley and second-placed Sheffield United in earning promotion to the top flight.

Stay updated with the latest action from the Premier League below.

Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made two changes to the starting XI following last week's victory over Burnley. Alexander-Arnold is sidelined with a knee injury, leading to Bradley's return at right-back. Konate, who returns from suspension, replaces Quansah at centre-back. Kelleher continues in goal after Alisson reportedly suffered a hamstring injury in training. The Reds' bench features big names, including the returning Salah, who has recovered from a hamstring issue that ended his Africa Cup of Nations campaign.

Brentford manager Thomas Frank has made just one change to the team that won last week, with Ajer replacing the injured Ethan Pinnock in defence. Wissa and Onyeka, who have returned from the Africa Cup of Nations, are named among the substitutes. Maupay retains his place alongside Toney, holding off a challenge from Wissa.

The leaders face a tough challenge in west London, where they suffered a 3-1 defeat last season. Brentford's recent form has improved, and they are eager to distance themselves from the relegation battle. Ivan Toney's return from suspension has sparked an upturn in their fortunes, and they secured an impressive 2-0 win at Wolves last week. Thomas Frank's team enters Matchday 25 with a six-point buffer to the bottom three and aims to extend their lead.

For the first time in years, it appears that we have a genuine three-horse title race in the Premier League. This weekend, Liverpool has the opportunity to pull five points clear at the top as they play before Manchester City and Arsenal. Despite selection issues, including the absence of Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, and Dominik Szoboszlai, Liverpool will have Mohamed Salah available, marking his return to club action after six weeks.

Welcome to our live coverage of this Premier League fixture, as leaders Liverpool visit the Gtech Community Stadium to take on Brentford!
