Liverpool has secured second place in the Premier League 2021/22 points table as they beat Brentford on Sunday. Jurgen Klopp’s men scored three goals without conceding a single. It was a deserving three points for the Reds as they were completely dominating throughout the 90 minutes. The victory lead them to 2nd position, two points above Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea who dropped a crucial three points after getting defeated by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City on Saturday. Even when the Reds have undertaken Chelsea in the points table they still have one game in hand.

The game against Brentford was a crucial one for both the teams as Liverpool wanted to go close to the table-toppers Manchester City and Brentford who did have a great run of form at the start of the season was trying to find that rhythm again. It was Reds’ midfielder Fabinho who gave the lead to the host as his header was too powerful that it got past Brentford’s goalkeeper. The half-time score was 1-0 to Reds.

Liverpool was playing with the same intensity in the second half as well. In the 69th minute, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made it more difficult for the visitors to make a comeback in this game as his sliding heading goal doubles the lead for the host. It was 2-0 with just 20 minutes remaining on the watch. Jurgen Klopp’s men didn’t stop after their 2nd goal as they found another one a few minutes later when Takumi Minamino who came from the bench scored the last goal of the match. It was a mistake from Brentford’s holding midfielder who gave it away to the host and the host made no mistake in making the scoreline 3-0. It was a birthday goal for Minamino. Even though the Reds were playing without their star forward Mohamed Salah, they were brilliant and played with the same energy.
