Salah needs one goal to become the 13th player to reach the milestone of 100 league goals for Liverpool. Of these previous 12, only one overseas player has accomplished it (Gordon Hodgson), while Salah could be the first from abroad to net 100 for the Reds in the Premier League.
Fastest to 100 league goals for Liverpool: Roger Hunt (148 games), Jack Parkinson (149). Salah currently has 99 from 150.
The No.11 has scored 17 goals in his last 21 Liverpool away games in all competitions.
Liverpool could today record the 800th away league victory in their history.
Joel Matip could make his 100th Premier League appearance for the club.
Jürgen Klopp’s men have kept five clean sheets in seven league and cup games this season, and are yet to concede a second-half goal in the campaign.
Should he net against Brentford, James Milner will become the fifth-oldest player ever to score for the Reds (aged 35 years, 264 days) and the fourth-oldest in the league.
This is the first meeting of the clubs in the league since 1946-47 when a 1-1 draw was played out at Griffin Park.
Liverpool are unbeaten in the last 15 Premier League games – 12 wins and three draws – taking 39 points from a possible 45.
