Liverpool are winners of their last five and undefeated in their last seven. They have gotten hot at the right time, and are in the midst of finishing a disappointing season on a high note. The positive momentum could carry into the summer, and perhaps they will be a club on the rebound heading into 2023-24. Six points behind them are Brentford, a smaller club that has cooled off lately after being very formidable for most of the season.
The Bees have the joint-fewest league matches left on their docket, so it’s going to be a challenge for them to reach European qualification when all is said and done. They have little room for error, and a couple teams to leapfrog.
