After a strong run Brentford faced Chelsea last weekend. Thomas Frank’s looked very solid at the home venue, but couldn’t find the way to score a goal and make a clean sheet. Brentford registered their second loss in this season - 0:1. In 8 games the Bees have 12 points. Now Brentford are in 11 place in the English Premier League table. Interesting stats: only two promoted clubs in Premier League history conceded less goals at this stage than Brentfords’ seven (Wolverhampton 18/19 and West Ham United 05/06).
Leicester City’s form
Last weekend Leicester City were able to break their run without a positive result. Brendan Rodgers’s team hosted Manchester United at King Power stadium and showed no mercy for the opposition defenders' mistakes. The Foxes conceded two goals but played extremely well in attack and scored four - 4:2. In 8 games Leicester City have 11 points. The Foxes are currently in 12 place in the English Premier League table.

- TO 2.5 goals for 1.80;
- Brentford handicap 0 for 1.92;
- Ivan Toney to score for 2.15.
