Follow live coverage as Liverpool travel to Brentford in the Premier League tonight.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have the chance to go clear at the top after Chelsea and Manchester United were both beaten earlier on Saturday but won’t have it easy against Thomas Frank’s side who have hit the ground running in the English top flight for the first time.

Klopp has made clear his admiration for the newly-promoted London club, who sit ninth in the table after winning two of their first five games, against Arsenal and Wolves.

“The football they play is incredible,” Klopp said. “The organisation they have is incredible, so Thomas (Frank) is obviously doing a brilliant job. Brentford is doing a brilliant job. How they recruit, how different they are, how they show with less money that it’s really possible to create something special.

“It reminds me a lot of my time at Mainz when I was there because we had no money and had to be creative in the transfer market. Brentford have a chance against us, not just because it’s football, but because of the football they play. They’re an incredibly well-drilled football team, a 3-5-2. Everybody knows what to do, everybody is ready to make the extra yard. Follow all the latest:

GOAL! Brentford 2 – 3 Liverpool (Jones, 67’)⚽️

67 mins: This one finds the target! Another shot from range from Curtis Jones. He connects beautifully and drills it towards the near post. Kristoffer Ajer attempts the block the shot. He gets a knee to the ball but lifts it over his own goalkeeper and the ball then finishes in the back of the net. Lucky deflection but a fantastic strike gives Jones his first goal since February!

GOAL! Brentford 2 – 2 Liverpool (Janelt, 63’)⚽️

63 mins: What a game! Brentford’s first real foray into Liverpool’s final third this half sees them whip a cross into the back post from the right. Alexander-Arnold has to deal with three Bees attackers and can’t win the ball in the air. It drops to Pontus Jansson who smacks it into the crossbar. The rebound comes out to Janelt who heads it at goal and the ball just crosses the lines before Alexander-Arnold can clear it!

60 mins: Liverpool have had almost 80% possession since the second half kicked off. They’ve not allowed Brentford to play or push forward.

Brentford 1 – 2 Liverpool

57 mins: Brentford just haven’t kicked into gear since the restart. They’ve got plenty of time to get back into the match though and they’ve won a free kick over on the right side. Janelt floats one into the box and Van Dijk wins the initial ball. He doesn’t clear it however but Liverpool get lucky as Toney is penalised for a foul in the box.

GOAL! Brentford 1 – 2 Liverpool (Salah, 54’)⚽️

54 mins: Salah scores! Fabinho flicks a lovely ball over the top and as Salah runs in behind. He brings it down and calmly guides it past David Raya!

The celebrations are cut short though as the offside flag is raised. VAR takes a look and overturns the decision, Salah was being played onside by the Brentford right-back!

51 mins: Raya to the rescue again! Robertson whips a cross in from the left wing and Henderson arrives to head it into the back of the net but he misses the ball!

Instead it drops to a surprised Jota who knees it towards the bottom left corner and forces Raya into a leaping save to flap the ball away.

48 mins: Mbeumo weaves into the right side of the box and looks to take on Van Dijk. He shows a bitt too much of the ball to the Liverpool centre-back and Van Dijk is able to turn it behind for a corner.

Janelt swings the corner into the box and almost finds Toney but the cross goes over his head and Liverpool work it away.
