Brentford – Burnley Preview

  • A thumping 3-1 victory over Norwich arrested an eight-game winless Premier League (PL) run (D1, L7) for Brentford, soothing their relegation fears. Having played more games than some of their relegation rivals, the ‘Bees’ will still be anxiously looking over their shoulder, but a victory against bottom-three Burnley would open up some much needed daylight.
  • There is added importance on this clash for Brentford, given that five of their six games following are against sides from last season’s PL top-seven. The last two H2H meetings also saw Brentford trail 3-0 at half-time, and no side has led at the break in fewer PL home games this season than the Bees’ two.
  • A second-half collapse saw Burnley slump to a 4-0 home defeat against Chelsea last weekend, and one more defeat ‘to nil’ would mark the first time Burnley have fallen to three PL losses in a row without reply since the end of 2020/21. Yet there’s hope to end their goalless run in West London, given that Burnley have scored three goals in four of the last five away H2Hs (W4, L1).
  • There’s no guarantee of history repeating itself though, with Burnley holding the joint-fewest PL away wins this season (one). However, the ‘Clarets’ are unbeaten in their last four PL visits to the capital (W1, D3), and a clean sheet may hold the key to victory, with nine of Burnley’s last ten PL away wins coming ‘to nil’.
  • Players to watch: Ivan Toney marked his first start post-injury with a hat-trick against Norwich, meaning he has now netted in four successive starts. Meanwhile, Burnley’s Maxwel Cornet netted in the reverse H2H, and four of his five goalscoring appearances this season have seen exactly four goals scored in the match.
  • Hot stat: Burnley (71) have been caught offside the most times in the PL this season.
