Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp explains Virgil van Dijk injury status after triple substitution | Football | Sport


There was a lift in Liverpool’s play momentarily in the beginning of the second half and shortly after Nunez’s effort was ruled out for offside, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain halved the deficit. But Liverpool didn’t step on the gas and push Brentford back even further as Thomas Frank’s side continued to threaten on the counter.

The hosts eventually secured all three points with a goal that summed up Liverpool’s night. Konate appeared favourite to outmuscle Bryan Mbeumo with a protracted ball excessive, but lost his footing on the mistaken moment, allowing the Brentford attacker to fit past Alisson with ease.

It leaves Liverpool 4 points adrift of the Champions League spaces, but Manchester United now have a game in hand to them. They’re now closer to the relegation zone than they’re Arsenal at the highest of the table.
