Brentford goalkeeper Mark Flekken is expected to be fit for the Bees’ Premier League game against Liverpool on Sunday.

Flekken was withdrawn at half-time during Brentford’s 3-2 victory over West Ham United last weekend, but head coach Thomas Frank confirmed the Netherlands international has been involved in full training this week.

Josh Dasilva (hamstring), Keane Lewis-Potter (calf) and Mikkel Damsgaard (knee) have also been training with the squad at Jersey Road as they close in on a return to competitive action.

Shandon Baptiste and Myles Peart-Harris – who both featured in Brentford B’s 3-2 victory over Strasbourg Under-21s last month – are close to being available, while Kevin Schade (adductor) is ‘on track’ but will remain sidelined until the new year.

Liverpool have an unblemished home record this season – winning eight games in all competitions at Anfield, all by a margin of two or more goals – but Frank insisted that his side are ready for the challenge on Merseyside.

The Bees are in impressive form themselves having won their last three Premier League games on the spin.

“For five years, Liverpool have been one of the top teams not just in the Premier League but the world,” Frank said.

“They have a fantastic coach [Jürgen Klopp] and coaching staff and great players.

“They have new energy in their squad with some of their new signings. [Dominik] Szoboszlai is a fantastic player.

“[Darwin] Núñez is getting closer to his top, and [Diogo] Jota is a top player. [Luis] Díaz – I’m pleased to hear his parents are now safe – is a fantastic player. Then you have the standout guy, 25 plus goals, [Mohamed] Salah.

“It’s an unbelievable team at Anfield – one of the most difficult away grounds to go to, if not the most difficult. It will be a tough test, but as always, we trust ourselves. We will try to take the game to Liverpool.”
