Three things we learned
1. Bees That Are Afraid Of No One: At no point over 90 minutes did Brentford look intimidated or abandoned despite two deficits after an early lead. This was a dedicated performance by Thomas Frank’s men, who had answers at every turn.
2. Salah’s Blip Sours Historic Day: Mohamed Salah, once ousted by Chelsea, will one day look back on his 100 Premier League goals scored from his second chance and he will love them. But at least all night he will be more concerned about a late flu that could have ruined the game for Brentford.
3. Raya’s Excellent Rescue Saves the Day: What a close save we saw from David Raya in stoppage time to keep a point with the hosts, the type who shook thousands of heads in a combination of “Of course, this play “How did he do that exactly?”
Man of the match: Vitaly Janelt
This could be anyone, so we’re giving it to the very busy Brentford midfielder who scored and got two key passes in the draw.
Brentford vs Liverpool summary
Bryan Mbeumo was a constant threat early on when Liverpool didn’t have the ball.
As for when the Reds had possession, it became clear that Brentford’s defensive performance early in the season was no fluke.
Ethan Pinnock came at the end of a peek through the penalty area to bag Brentford’s equalizing goal, but had too good a view of Liverpool’s equalizing goal when Jordan Henderson crossed over to Diogo Jota.
Jota might have made it 2-1 when he snapped on a rebound from a Curtis Jones save, but Bees goalkeeper David Raya reacted quickly and forced a corner.

It was Raya v Jota again in the 49th minute as the keeper swept away a half-sighted look at the frame.
The Reds went through Salah’s 100th Premier League goal, but Brentford had an answer through Janelt.
Jones gave the Reds a second lead of the evening with a vicious shot that distracted Kristoffer Ajer from Raya’s hamstrings in the 67th minute.
Salah missed a chance to clear it in the 77th minute by blasting the ball over Raya and the crossbar.
That seemed expensive when Wisse, just into the game, cleaned up a mess after an off-balance Trent Alexander-Arnold couldn’t handle a cross. The Congolese blasted the ball over an attacking Alisson Becker.
