It has not been a great summer so far or Leicester fans, with the club being the only side in Europe’s top five leagues yet to make a single transfer. This, coupled with the constant links for moves away for some of their best players and the recent departure of goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, who left the club after 11 years, has fans questioned just how they will get on in 2022/23.

This season looks to be the toughest one yet for Brendan Rodgers, but it does begin with a game against the only side to avoid relegation that Leicester did the double over last season, Brentford. The Foxes came out 2-1 winners in both matches in 2021/22 and will be hoping to complete the hat-trick.

Brentford have also lost an important Dane in this transfer window, with Christian Eriksen deciding to join Manchester United rather than renew at the Community Stadium. Only Kevin De Bruyne (42) and Martin Odegaard (38) created more chances than the former Tottenham man (30) since he made his Bees debut and his creativity will need replacing if Brentford are going to be successful this term.

They will again rely on the goalscoring exploits of Ivan Toney, who impressed in his first full season in the top flight with 12 goals and five assists in his 33 appearances. Now, it will be time to show that he can perform at the top level consistently and help keep Brentford in the Premier League for another season and maybe even help them push for a top half finish.

Leicester vs Brentford match stats

James Maddison had his best season in terms of numbers last term (12 goals, 8 assists) and was one of just four English players to be directly involved in 20+ goals after Harry Kane, Jarrod Bowen and Mason Mount. The English midfielder was in red hot form right at the end of the season, scoring in each of his last four games and also providing three assists in that time and will be hoping to continue his hot streak into 2022/23 and get off to the best possible start against Brentford.

Both Leicester and Brentford finished their 2021/22 campaigns with goals galore. Over 2.5 goals landed in five of Leicester’s final six games and in five of Brentford’s final six games, including each of the last four matches. Only three sides kept fewer clean sheets last season than Leicester (7), while the Foxes were just one of two sides to score 60+ goals and concede 50+ goals alongside West Ham.
