First Goalscorer Raphinha 13/2

Leeds may have quietened some suggestions of second-season syndrome but Marcelo Bielsa’s side remain uncomfortably close to the relegation zone as we start a busy December in English football. The Whites have lost just one of their past six games, drawing three and winning two, including a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace in midweek thanks to a late penalty from Raphinha. The victory moved Leeds up to 15th but they remain just five points clear of Burnley and Norwich in the relegation zone. Now, they’ll be looking to win consecutive Premier League games for the first time this season and three consecutive top flight clean sheets for the first time since August 2002.

They face a Brentford side that will undoubtedly be happy with their position in the Premier League after 14 games, but certainly not their recent form. The Bees are currently 12th, a commendable position having been promoted from the Championship, but after a positive start things have started to falter. Brentford have lost five of their past seven Premier League matches, winning once and drawing one, falling closer to the relegation zone in points. They are now just six points clear of the drop zone having lost 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday, their third consecutive away match without victory.

Leeds vs Brentford: Match Stats

Raphinha has been Leeds’ man for the moment this season, scoring 46% of their total Premier League goals so far this season (six out of 13). The Brazilian has netted three goals in his past four appearances, which have also been three of the past four goals Leeds have scored.

However, Leeds haven’t been the best in attack, with only Norwich (eight) scoring fewer than their 13 in the Premier League so far this season. Brentford, meanwhile, have the best defence in the lower half of the Premier League table, conceding 19 goals having faced the likes of Liverpool, West Ham, Chelsea and Tottenham.
