The Bees have recently beaten West Ham and Manchester City and were unlucky to draw with Tottenham while Liverpool have racked up four straight Premier League wins.
Ivan Toney, who should be fit, has been in particularly good form, but faces the looming deadline of January 4 to respond to the Football Association's charges of 262 alleged breaches of betting rules, so his availability beyond this game remains in doubt.
Darwin Nunez, on the other hand, continues to struggle in front of goal, after another infuriating blank against Leicester.
Here are all the details...

Brentford vs Liverpool prediction
Brentford are oozing confidence at the moment, and rightly so, but were allowed to get into their groove against both West Ham and Tottenham, a priviledge I can’t see Liverpool affording them.
Liverpool look a completely different beast to just a few months ago - though did ride their luck against Leicester - and we should be served up an entertaining game in west London. Let’s hope Darwin Nunez finds his shooting boots, for once.
Liverpool to win, 3-1.
