Brentford handed major boost ahead of Liverpool clash

Posted by

Despite being stretchered off against West Ham on Friday, according to recent reports, Brentford’s Ivan Toney could be in line to feature against Liverpool on Monday night.

Toney, 26, netted against the Hammers but was forced off in the game’s second half after injuring his leg.

Worryingly, the 26-year-old was unable to make his own way off the pitch and required the stretcher. Following his withdrawal against West Ham, Bees fans would have been forgiven for fearing their star striker would be out for a significant period of time.

However, according to a recent report from The Athletic’s Jay Harris, Toney could be set to make a quick comeback against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

Although not nailed on to start due to missing his team’s training session on Saturday, Toney’s inclusion, even if it is on the substitute’s bench, will serve as a huge boost to Thomas Frank, who is looking to guide the Bees toward a European spot, and his number 17, who has already scored 12 league goals, will be vital to that.

  1. In ‘agony’, stretchered off but the injury is “not significant” and could possibly play a couple of days later sums up many modern footballers. Imagine someone doing what Gerry Byrne did when playing for Liverpool in the 1965 Cup Final? Suffered a broken collar bone early in the game but played on even with extra time. Rowdy Yeats had a dislocated shoulder put back in by Bob Paisley and finished the game. Men like them are in short supply these days, although roll arounds like Neymar and Richarlison ply their trade without embarrassment.

  2. LFC should ignore foolish utterances from the likes of Nevill and Merson in respect of reference to the buying of Gackpo as spiteful.An enemy will always look for anything to blasphemy you.There had never been any good appreciation by Neville in particular because of jealousy. If it were according to their wishes LFC would be history.
