Brentford v Liverpool: match preview

Liverpool travel to Brentford in the knowledge that, as their commanding League Cup win at Norwich showed, their strength in depth looks formidable this season. Jürgen Klopp has the luxury of making some tough decisions, such as whether Andy Robertson comes back in for the increasingly impressive Kostas Tsimikas. Brentford’s second string did not do badly themselves in thumping Oldham 7-0. Nick Ames
