After a hot start, Brentford's season has hit a bit of a stumble. The Bees are still in the top half of the table, but they haven't won in their past five matches and have now lost three in a row. While matches against Brighton, Man Utd and Newcastle in the course of the week would be a challenge for any team, last week's loss to Wolves is a cause for concern. Even more concerning? Their lone goal in the past three matches was an Ivan Toney penalty against Newcastle. They'll certainly hope that they can open the floodgates this weekend and get back to winning ways.
But unfortunately for Brentford, they're hosting Aston Villa, whose turnaround under new manager Unai Emery has been staggering. Villa have won 12 games and only lost six since he took over last November. In that time, only Arsenal and Manchester City have secured more points. Villa have won five in a row and are quickly chasing down Tottenham and Newcastle for the last Champions League spot for next year. Ollie Watkins has been stellar in this period, scoring 12 goals in 18 matches and goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez has 10 clean sheets so far this season.
So will Brentford be able to get back to winning ways? Or will their goal-scoring problems continue against Villa and Martínez, while Watkins picks their defense apart? Either way, you definitely won’t want to miss this exciting Premier League matchup.
