"There are so many things we can do, a lot of top counter-pressing, winning the ball back, going from there," Jurgen Klopp said ahead of the game against Brentford.

"This is needed in different situations. We have to play against deep formations, in between the lines, all these kind of things. There's quick thinking – much more important than quick running.

"Yes, Mo, Sadio and Naby, they can think quick as well but they are not here, so the rest can do that as well."

Liverpool failed to score against a 10-man Arsenal in their League Cup clash on Wednesday.

The game against Brentford on Sunday presents an opportunity for Liverpool to test themselves against without their two proven scorers in Mane and Salah.
