The Premier League returns for another set of enticing fixtures over the course of the next few days with one of them pitting Brentford against Leicester City. It’s a clash between two clubs who are a whole lot of fun to watch and while both have their flaws, it’s safe to say they aren’t afraid to create some end-to-end drama.
Who knows – perhaps this could wind up being a battle between a pair of teams fighting it out for sixth by the end of the campaign.
Brentford are the Moneyball side of the Premier League in the eyes of many but when you strip all of that away, you get a well-followed club that simply does not know how to quit. They’ve made their way up to the top flight with style, persistence and a whole lot of ability, and so far, they’re exceeding all expectations put in front of them. Based on what we’ve seen so far, they’ll be a dark horse to watch between now and May.
Ajer is back from injury and should feature but there are still a couple important faces on the shelf, including Dasilva, Sorensen, Baptiste, Wissa and Janelt.
The art of balancing the Premier League with European commitments can often prove tricky and it finally seems to have caught up to Leicester City this season. Brendan Rodgers still has plenty of time left to try and steady the ship and guide them back into the top four conversation, but they should probably think about taking another look at what they want to achieve this season. They’re still an elite club but falling off from this position isn’t unheard of.
Tielemans, Castagne and Perez are all viewed as fitness concerns for the trip down south with Fofana, Justin and Ndidi being ruled out.
Factors to Consider
- Brentford are 9th in the Premier League whereas Leicester are 11th.
- Brentford have won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six games.
- Leicester have won three, drawn two and lost one of their last six games.
- Brentford have scored 14 goals and conceded six in their last six games.
- Leicester have scored 14 goals and conceded 10 in their last six games.
This game has “classic” written all over it and that’s exactly what we’re expecting to see in the capital. Brentford are able to grind teams down and really cause them problems at the back which, as we know, has been an issue for Leicester this season. In equal measure the Foxes are also capable of scoring goals for fun with an attacking line-up that’s very familiar with one another, which is why we’re going to suggest this will end in a 2-2 draw.
