Brentford vs Leicester predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League fixture today

Ivan Toney celebrates scoring against Aston Villa

Brentford welcome Leicester City to west London in the Premier League this Sunday afternoon.

The Bees entered the weekend in the top half of the table after a magnificent start to the season, taking twelve points from eight games, including their opening day victory over Arsenal and exhilarating 3-3 draw with Liverpool.

Thomas Frank’s side did see their momentum halted last week with defeat by Chelsea, but still produced a valiant performance, with only Edouard Mendy’s heroics in goal denying Brentford a point. They will have to make do without striker Yoane Wissa, though, whose prolific start has been curtailed by an ankle injury.

Meanwhile, Leicester have recovered from a rocky opening stretch of results and produced a brilliant display last weekend to defeat Manchester United.

Brendan Roders’ side maintained that newfound momentum in midweek, too, as Patson Daka scored all four Leicester goals as they defeated Spartak Moscow.
