During the 2021-22 season, Brentford overcame all the expectations after finishing 13th in their debut season in the Premier League. This season might end up being an even tougher challenge as the so-called second season syndrome has plagued teams like this one in the past. Thomas Frank will use every resource available for him to prevent this team from falling into the relegation zone. They’ll open up the season on Sunday against Leicester City.
While losing Christian Eriksen to Man United was a huge blow to Brentford, the additions of Keane Lewis-Potter, Aaron Hickey, Ben Mee, and Thomas Strakosha should be enough for them to reach an even better finish this season.
On top of that, two straight wins over Brighton and Real Betis to close out the pre-season should boost Frank’s side’s confidence quite a bit during their trip to King Power Stadium. It’s undeniable that their last campaign was nothing short of amazing and Brentford will have a lot of eyes on them this time
Now looking at Leicester, the pre-season included very positive results for them. They closed it out with 4 straight wins over Hull City, Derby County, Preston North End, and Sevilla. They have also won their last three encounters against Brentford, and every single one of them in a convincing manner.
Leicester finished 8th last season with a 14-10-14 record and they are entering this season with what is effectively the exact same squad, so expecting any significant changes wouldn’t be right.
While this team will use everything in their power to avoid relegation, it would be a lie to say that they are going to end up in a much better position. It’s not like they are for sure falling down the standings this season, but if they want to see any improvements, they should make changes as soon as possible.
