Liverpool’s mini Premier League revival was ended emphatically as they went down to a 3-1 defeat at Brentford.
The Reds had won four league games on the bounce before heading to west London, boosting hopes that a poor start to the campaign was little more than a blip.
However, they reached half-time 2-0 down thanks to an Ibrahima Konate own goal and a Yoane Wissa strike, and were fortunate that the linesman’s flag spared them the concession of two further goals.
Hopes of an unlikely comeback were fuelled shortly after the break when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain netted and Darwin Nunez had a goal ruled out.
But Brentford sealed the points in the dying moments as Bryan Mbeumo capitalised on weak defending from Konate to finish past Alisson Becker.
