met the back of the net to help their side go above


in the Premier League table and sit second.

Notwithstanding dominating most of the game and registering 12 shots before the second half, the Reds had to be patient to break the opponents at Anfield.

Fabinho scored the opener for Liverpool and the next two goals were enough to seal a victory for them.

Klopp was delighted with his players’ performances and how they adapted to the challenges set by the Bees.


It's extremely uncomfortable to play against Brentford, to be honest,"

Klopp told

BBC Sport


"They usually play differently, but the way they play against us is really difficult.

"There were so many moments where the ball was in the air and the moment it was on the ground, we had to start playing football.

"It was not always fluent, but that's how it is very often – the set-pieces can be the opener. That was the case today. We could have scored maybe before, but then the next two goals were outstanding.

"You need patience. You cannot lose focus or get sloppy. You have to stay full of desire even when you don't find direction. We had to switch sides, play it quick and all these kinds of things. We really controlled it in the second half."

Fabinho netted three goals in three games for his side, with the other two coming in their FA Cup win over Shrewsbury Town last weekend.


We needed these three points and a good performance, so it was nice to do it in front of our fans,"

the Brazilian midfielder said.

"It will be good to grow our confidence.

"It's always nice to score here at Anfield. When I can help the team in the offensive part of the pitch, it's always important for me as well.

"The team played really well with the ball. We created a lot of opportunities to score. It is a chance for everybody to show their quality and step up. We did that today."
