Brentford will take on Leicester on Saturday afternoon looking to bounce back in the Premier League after a 1-0 setback to Everton. This season, the Bees have performed admirably at home. In contrast, Leicester struggled mightily defensively in a 3-1 loss to Chelsea, and given that Brentford is a formidable opponent at home, we do not think the visitors will be able to gain anything from the game.
Unfortunately for the Bees, Everton ended their extraordinary league unbeaten streak of 12 games on Sunday at Goodison Field with a 1-0 victory over the Bees. The incredible league unbeaten streak had begun at the very end of October.
The Bees suffered just their fifth league defeat of the year thanks to a goal from Dwight McNeil after just 35 seconds. Thomas Frank wants his team to rapidly recover from this slight setback so they can keep vying for a top-six finish.
Brentford is now ranked ninth in the Premier League, but with a win on Wednesday, the Bees might move up to the top seven and close the gap on sixth-place Liverpool, whom they will play on the last day of the season.
Although only losing one of their 13 Premier League home games this season in front of their own supporters, Brentford has struggled to win away from home, winning just two of their 12 games. In addition, the Bees lost 4-1 to Southampton in their final trip to St. Mary’s in January 2022.
Remember that the Bees will have to face Southampton before taking on Leicester. They already defeated the Saints easily in their most recent encounter last month, winning 3-0 at home. If they win on Wednesday, it will be the first time since March 1959 that they have defeated their South Coast rivals in consecutive league games.
