Liverpool vs Brentford not on TV as UK viewers left unable to stream match

Football ‘safe space’ for Liverpool’s Diaz during dad’s kidnapping

Football fans in the UK will be unable to watch Liverpool take on Brentford later today, with the match having been snubbed for live coverage by Sky Sports. The Reds will go into the fixture looking to extend their unbeaten home record with the aim of keeping the pressure on at the top of the Premier League table.

Liverpool currently sit third after losing just one game all season but will need to be at their best to beat Brentford, who are more than capable of making life difficult for any team in the division. The Bees have won their last three games and recently moved into the top half of the table following their impressive victories over Chelsea and West Ham.

The match will kick off at 2pm today, which is usually a televised slot, but fans in the UK will not be able to watch the action from their sofas. This is because Sky Sports have opted to show West Ham’s game against Nottingham Forest, which begins at the same time, before Chelsea face Manchester City later in the afternoon.

Four matches will kick off at the same time as Liverpool, with Aston Villa set to face Fulham as they look to close the gap on the Premier League’s top four. Brighton will also be involved against Sheffield United, who earned their first win of the campaign over Wolves last time around.

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen how Liverpool will fare against Brentford this afternoon as Jurgen Klopp’s side look to make it eight wins from eight at Anfield this season. Mohamed Salah will once again be crucial to their hopes of getting a result, with the Egyptian maestro having scored 10 goals for the Reds in all competitions so far.

Liverpool will be hoping to immediately bounce back from last weekend’s draw at Luton Town, who were just minutes away from sealing a famous victory before Luis Diaz’s stoppage-time goal rescued a point for the visitors. There were plenty of sub-par showings all over the pitch against the Hatters and Klopp will be desperate to inspire a stronger all-round performance at the next time of asking.

The Reds manager will also be looking to avoid reigniting a historic feud with an old foe over the course of today’s match. Paul Tierney will be the man in the middle as he referees his first Liverpool game since last season’s victory over Tottenham, after which Klopp was hit with an improper conduct charge due to his post-match comments.

He was later handed a two-match ban plus a £75,000 fine after questioning Tierney’s integrity by accusing him of being biased against Liverpool, saying: “We have our story, history with Mr Tierney. I really don’t know what this man has with us, I really don’t know. Always will say there is nothing and it’s not true, it cannot be. I am really not sure if it’s me because how he looks at me, I don’t understand it.”
