You wouldn't know it from watching them, but Brentford are a newly promoted side. The Bees have adapted to the Premier League with ease. Their opening night victory over Arsenal took the footballing world by surprise, and they've carried on impressing ever since. 

That victory was followed by well-earned victories over West Ham and Wolves, as well as a superb point against Liverpool in a 3-3 thriller. Even at this early stage of the season, it looks like Brentford are here to stay. 

Much of the credit for this bright start must go to manager Thomas Frank, who has elevated the side beyond mere underdog status. They might not be competing for the title or European places, but don't be surprised if they make a strong challenge for a top 10 finish. 

Leicester City are a club that will feel they very much should be aiming for European competition qualification this season. After narrowing missing out on Champions League football last season, they've endured something of a slump this season. 

That said, the Leicester we've been used to may be returning, as a 4-2 thrashing of Manchester United last weekend felt very much like the Foxes of old. Jamie Vardy got on the scoresheet, of course, but the influence of Youri Tielemans in midfield cannot be overlooked. He is a player of real quality that can hurt any side in the division. 

Leicester will hope to follow up that convincing victory with another three points here, but don't expect Brentford to roll over. That's simply not in their nature. This one could go either way. 

Both sides are unchanged from their previous Premier League fixture; here's how they line up:

Brentford: Raya; Zanka, Jansson, Pinnock; Canos, Norgaard, Onyeka, Jensen, Henry; Toney, Mbeumo.

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Amartey, Evans, Soyuncu; Pereira, Tielemans, Soumare, Castagne; Madisson; Iheanacho; Vardy.
