IF IT AIN'T BROKE…
Thomas Frank makes just the one change from Brentford's impressive 2-0 win over Wolves with the suspended Baptiste making way for Frank Onyeka.
Ivan Toney was at his brilliant best last time out for Brentford and Frank will be hoping that his star striker can cause the Liverpool backline all kinds of problems tonight.
Former Celtic man Kristoffer Ajer has been in excellent form for the Bees so far this season and could prove to be an excellent signing for £14m.
But he and his defensive colleagues will have a tough night ahead of them trying to stop Liverpool's goal-machine Mo Salah, who has four goals in five games so far.

Despite injuries to Thiago Alcantara, Harvey Elliott and Naby Keita, Liverpool are able to field a side that is not far from their best XI, with Alexander-Arnold and Robertson both returning to the side.
Curtis Jones is given another opportunity in midfield after starting in the Carabao Cup alongside Fabinho and captain Jordan Henderson.
Meanwhile Diogo Jota keeps Roberto Firmino out of the team once again as he starts through the middle, with Sadio Mane and Mo Salah either side of him.

Hello and welcome to our up-to-the-minute coverage of Brentford vs Liverpool in the Premier League live from the Brentford Community Stadium.
Brentford have not beaten Liverpool since November 1938 and their clash this evening will be the first time the two sides have gone head-to-head in the top flight since 1947.
Liverpool came out on top all four times they've played each other in the cup since then, scoring 14 goals in total, demonstrating that history is firmly on their side.
The Bees have had a good start to the season, however, and are currently sat 10th in the Premier League after an opening day win against Arsenal and an impressive 2-0 away win at Wolves last weekend.
They put seven past League Two Oldham in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, with four goals from 22-year-old Finnish forward Marcus Forss, who will be hoping to keep his place in the starting line-up today.
Liverpool are currently top of the Premier League after Chelsea and Man Utd both slipped up earlier and lost 1-0 to Man City and Aston Villa respectively.
They'll be looking to continue their very strong start to the season with six wins out of seven in all competitions,
Their last competitive defeat came in the quarter-final of the Champions League in April when they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid.
The Reds have also scored three goals in each of their last four games, which means it could be a difficult night in goal for David Raya, despite only conceding two goals in their five Prem games so far.
This should be a very exciting Premier League clash, so strap in and we'll bring you team news and live build-up as we countdown to kick-off.
