Liverpool team news: Predicted XI vs Brentford as Cody Gakpo decision made on debut

Liverpool are short of options in central midfield to rotate around but Naby Keita may get his chance in the starting line-up to give Jordan Henderson a rest. Thiago Alcantara has dictated the midfield since the Premier League season resumed and Klopp will want him back in the mix against Brentford.

Attack: Carvalho, Nunez, Salah

Klopp has admitted that he finds it unlikely Gakpo’s paperwork will go through in time for the Dutchman to make his debut against Brentford. It means Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah will likely be leading the line once again for the Reds.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has started alongside them in both games against Aston Villa and Leicester, but he’s struggled to make an impact. Fabio Carvalho is fresh having been an unused substitute in both those matches and could be called upon.
