Thomas Frank insists "the pressure is off" of Brentford for Saturday's clash with Liverpool.

The Bees have started well in their first Premier League campaign, grabbing two wins and two draws from five games.

They face their biggest test so far at home against Liverpool on Saturday, and Frank is excited for the clash.

He told the club's website: "The pressure is off. It is a different mentality from the Play-Off Final where the pressure was massive to win. However, we need to find the right balance to make sure we aren't exposed or show too much respect.

"We have a balanced squad that is confident but humble. We will go into the game with fire in our eyes and a smile on our face to attack, and probably defend a lot as well. We are looking forward to the challenge.

"Nobody expects us to do anything and it's not this game where we need to get our points but, if we want to end as high as possible, every point counts. We are going out there to do everything to get the points. It is more likely that they win 3-0 than we win 1-0 but we have a chance to win 1-0. That's the chance we are going for. I know we are difficult to play against and I hope we make it difficult for Liverpool."
