Tip Brentford - Leicester
Prediction published on October 22, 2021 at 11:38 AM - Modified on October 22, 2021 at 12:38 PM
An in-form Leicester attack makes its way up to Brentford on Sunday for a Premier League clash. The Foxes are 11th in the table, with 11 points from eight games, one point fewer than Brentford, in ninth. Leicester led the game of the weekend on matchday eight, beating Manchester United 4-2 at the King Power Stadium. They followed this up with a 4-3 victory in Russia in midweek, beating Spartak Moscow in the Europa League. It will be a challenging feat to score four again this time out as Brentford have the best defensive record outside of the top four. And as thrilling as that win in Russia was, it showed how shaky Leicester can be away from home. They have failed to win three of their last five matches away from home and only kept one clean sheet from their previous six.
Brentford can count themselves unlucky to have come up short last time out when they lost to Chelsea. The Bees had their chances and failed to take them, resulting in their first defeat in five matches. It was also the latest negative result in a tough run of home fixtures, with two losses and no wins from their last three Premier League games at Brentford Community Stadium. The two clubs have met in recent seasons in the FA Cup, with Leicester winning away on each occasion. We fancy the Foxes to edge this one too. Back the visitors.
Key points Brentford - Leicester
Leicester are unbeaten in four of their last six away games in all competitions, winning three times.
Leicester have won their last two matches, scoring four goals on each occasion.
Leicester have won on their previous two visits to Brentford.
Brentford have failed to win their last three Premier League home games.
Conclusion Brentford - Leicester
Brentford have been better than their recent results would suggest. After all, their last three home games came against teams in the current top four. Even so, Leicester's form suggests they may claim victory by sheer force of momentum. Back the Foxes.
