Frank claimed: “I’m very very pleased that he’s playing for Brentford because I think if you took him out of our team and put him into Liverpool and changed the two players, Fabinho and him, I don’t think you’d see much difference.” Speaking ahead of the Reds' trip to the capital on Saturday, where the two sides will meet in the league for the first time since 1947, the Bees boss was asked how compatriot Norgaard compares to Molby.

The newly-promoted Bees have made an impressive start to life in the Premier League, winning two and drawing two in their first five matches and Norgaard has impressed, playing every minute and scoring in the club’s opening day victory over Arsenal Joining Brentford in 2019 from Italian side Fiorentina, the midfielder has seemingly drawn comparisons with fellow Dane and Liverpool legend Jan Molby since making the step up this season.

I think Christian, I know he’s 27, but I think he’s a late bloomer.” So far this season, Fabinho has a better pass completion (87.4% compared to 81.4%) and has had five more shots on goal.

Defensively, Norgaard has made more tackles than Liverpool’s number three as well as interceptions though it has to be said, Brentford do not play on the offensive as much as Jurgen Klopp’s side.
