Liverpool Showcase Their Grit In Huge title Race Win!

Liverpool's triumphant 4-1 win against Brentford is another highlight of their tactical nuance. Jurgen Klopp's men faced the Bees in what could have been a potential banana skin away at Brentford. The Bees were very disappointing on the day despite a bright opening thirty-five minutes from the home side.

The Merseyside Reds put on an impressive display which saw four different goal-scorers and a second goal of the season for Alexis Mac Allister. The game also saw the return of the Egyptian king as Mohammed Salah came back from injury and grabbed himself a goal and an assist.

Salah's substitution on the stroke of halftime was to make way for an injured Diogo Jota who has been the in-form man in the 32-year-old's absence. Jota and Curtis Jones' injuries were the dampener on the day and added to an already long injury list for Jurgen Klopp's men. Brentford, who are known for their set-pieces, attempted to unlock the Red's defence but to no avail, as Liverpool displayed their excellent counter-attacking.

Darwin Nunez's excellent chip opened the scoring and opened the floodgates as Liverpool were 3-0 up in the 68th minute. All thanks to the brilliance of Mohammed Salah as his return mimicked Kevin De Bruyne's against Newcastle. The Egyptian continues to be the catalyst in the Merseyside Red's potential quadruple.

The return of the 32-year-old has sparked debate as to who the best player in the Premier League is. However, both players have proved to be a massive boost for their respective clubs and will be vital in the run-in for the league title. Jurgen Klopp will not care about this debate as his team continues to impress and extend their lead to two points over Arsenal and five points over Manchester City after their surprising draw against Chelsea.

The Reds' adaptability was on full display due to the injuries of Jones and Jota as well as a less favoured kick-off time for Jurgen Klopp. Ivan Toney's goal did not shake the Reds and they continued to show their dominance by adding a fourth thanks to Cody Gakpo, who replaced Nunez at halftime.

As Liverpool's fixture list intensifies, so does their injury list and the games ahead could see a lot of rotation to deal with the Europa League, Premier League, Carabao Cup, and FA Cup. Up next for the Reds is Luton Town at home and the Hatters visit them after a disappointing loss against Manchester United.

With a keen eye on the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp will be forced to rotate due to injuries and it could be a tougher test than expected with limited options. The Reds will still expect to be favourites and have a huge chance on Sunday for their first piece of silverware in Jurgen Klopp's goodbye season.

Despite the mounting injuries and fixtures, Liverpool continue to top the league table and find themselves potentially creating a season to remember. Jurgen Klopp has a chance to do something special again this campaign and the players will be doing everything possible to create the perfect send-off for the German.
