The Claret and Blue Army have never lost to the Bees at Villa Park, where they have been beaten just once in their last five matches.
Dean Smith’s side have netted eight goals without reply in their last two outings; seeing off Newcastle United 2-0 here before putting six past Barrow in the Carabao Cup in midweek.
They have scored four goals from as many shots on target in the Premier League this season, while failing to find the net just once in 13 matches.
Although, Villa have failed to register a win in their last six league meetings with Brentford, who Smith managed between 2015 and 2018.
The Bees have made a solid start to life in the top-flight; beating Arsenal 2-0 before holding Crystal Palace to a goalless draw.
Aston Villa vs Brentford: Match Stats
Brentford are looking to become only the third promoted club to begin a Premier League campaign with three successive clean sheets – after Charlton (1998-99) and Huddersfield (2017-18).
While Villa have been solid on home soil, Thomas Frank’s side have suffered just one defeat in their last eight away games.
A penalty has been awarded in each of Villa’s last four Premier League outings; a run that could continue here given the likely tight nature of the contest.
