Brentford have been a great addition to the Premier League this season, having fought tooth and nail for promotion to the top tier for quite some time. Thomas Frank’s distinctive style of play, coupled with the club’s penchant for great value signings through their trust in data, have made the Bees a different prospect to most newly-promoted teams into one of the world’s most competitive divisions.

Although they were narrowly beaten by early season pace-setters Chelsea last week, the Bees have already enjoyed some fine performances in wins over the likes of Arsenal, Wolves and West Ham and they also held Liverpool to a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Brentford Community Stadium last month, so you wouldn’t back against them taking all three points this Sunday afternoon.

The visitors this time around are a Leicester City outfit that haven’t quite been at their best so far this term. The Foxes have been in and around the top four chase for the majority of the last two campaigns, only to slip out of the top four in the latter stages of both of those seasons, but this term they may have to chase down the European spots from a lower position as they sit in 11th place with eight games on the board.

Brendan Rodgers’ men may well have been distracted by their Europa League campaign where they have so far picked up four points from a possible nine, but they did put in their best performance of the season so far last weekend,  Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men 4-2 at the King Power. They’ve won at Brentford in the FA Cup in each of the last two seasons, can they now do the same in the Premier League

Brentford vs Leicester: Match Stats

Brentford do look threatening in attack through the likes of Bryan Mbuemo and Ivan Toney and they had scored seven goals in three matches prior to last weekend’s defeat at home to Chelsea. Both teams have scored in each of Leicester’s last four Premier League games, with two of those four matches ending level and we can see a similar outcome to that high-scoring draw that the Bees shared with Liverpool at this ground last month.

Although it may not be expected from a player that looks like a relatively lightweight winger, Sergi Canos has been Brentford’s most effective ball-winners so far this season, averaging 2.9 tackles won per match in the Premier League thus far. He will be tasked with holding up Timothy Castagne’s marauding runs from full-back here and we’re backing him to make another three or more tackles in this game too.
