Brentford will try to defeat a club that they haven’t beaten in almost seven decades when they take on Leicester City in the English Premier League on Sunday.

Brentford lost at home to Chelsea in the Premier League last weekend while Leicester beat Manchester United at the King Power Stadium before a thrilling 4-3 win at Spartak Moscow in the Europa League.

The Bees have made a fine start to life in the Premier League and are comfortably in ninth place in the table, having won three and drawn three of their eight games.

Both of Brentford’s defeats have come in home games (against Brighton and Chelsea) while five of their seven goals conceded in the competition have come at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Last week's 1-0 reverse to Chelsea was tinged with regret at not taking chances, although Blues stopper Edouard Mendy was a big reason why the Bees failed to score as he pulled off a string of fine saves.

Brentford have beaten Arsenal and also held Liverpool to a draw at home while overcoming Wolves and West Ham away.

Thomas Frank’s side more than matched the European champions, who created very little aside from Ben Chilwell’s outstanding strike to win the game.

Following their 4-2 victory against Manchester United last time out, Leicester are looking to pick up consecutive league wins for the first time since April.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have won their last four Premier League away games against promoted sides, by an aggregate score of 11-2, and will be buoyed by their midweek victory in Europe where Patson Daka scored all of their four goals.

Leicester are currently 11th in the table, a point behind Brentford having won three and drawn two of their eight games. 

Brentford are winless in their last eight meetings with Leicester in all competitions (D1 L6) or since a 3-2 victory in the second tier in March 1953.

Their last meeting, in the fourth round of the FA Cup at Brentford in January, resulted in a 3-1 win for City.

Leicester have won each of their last five away games against Brentford in all competitions.

Verdict

A close match is expected so we are backing a value on a draw.
