Premier League newcomers Brentford have had a positive start to the season as they’ve collected nine points out of a possible 18 and sit in the top half of the table.

After beating Wolves last week, they’ve now drawn 3-3 against the Reds to earn a huge point.

Ethan Pinnock gave the hosts the lead before Diogo Jota headed Liverpool level before half-time.

Jurgen Klopp’s side took the lead twice in the second-half but on both occasions Brentford found an equaliser.

Mohamed Salah scored his 100th Premier League goal for the club and youngster Curtis Jones was among the goals, but it’s Brentford that will be feeling satisfied after what was a thrilling 90 minutes.

Manager Thomas Frank was pleased with his side’s performance as they held a team he believes is ‘one of the best in Europe’.

“I think we went toe to toe with one of the three best teams in the country at this moment in time,” he told Sky Sports. “One of the best teams in Europe the last three years and I think we got a well deserved point and we worked hard in the game there were moments Liverpool could’ve scored but you need a little luck in the saves and blocks but I think we had opportunities.

“I felt the first two goals we could’ve avoided and done better but toe-to-toe brave, played forward, very pleased.

“I also think it summed up that both teams wanted to go for the win, even if it was 3-3 it was a massive point for us against a top team but we still tried to go for the win then of course Liverpool will go for the win always.

“We would like to play more but we’re playing against one of the best pressing teams in Europe and the counter-pressing. So we knew in certain areas we needed to go direct because first and foremost we could hurt them but they could hurt us.”

He added: “We just tried to present ourselves in the best possible way. I spoke to the players and I said we need to be brave and we need to show the attitude but humble, but make sure were brave and don’t have regrets against a big team.”

At 3-2, Salah had the opportunity to give the Reds a two goal cushion as he found himself one v one with goalkeeper David Raya.

The Egyptian’s attempted chip landed on the roof of the net and the home side went on to score an equaliser through Yoane Wissa and became the second team to take points off Liverpool this season.
