Tip Reasoning

  • Aston Villa have won four of their last five matches in all competitions.
  • Brentford have only won four of their last 11 away days in all competitions.
  • Aston Villa have conceded in four of their last five Premier League matches.

Smith and Frank set for Villa Park reunion

Old friends are reunited on Saturday as Thomas Frank takes his Brentford side to Villa Park to face off against his former boss Dean Smith, but it might not be a happy reunion for the Brentford boss as he looks to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

Aston Villa’s opening day defeat to Watford was a disappointing showing but they bounced back in perfect style at home to Newcastle last weekend. They followed that 2-0 win up with a 6-0 demolition of Barrow in the EFL Cup and had the luxury of resting the majority of their starting lineup.

Bees ready for tough test

Brentford, on the other hand, were forced to bring on their benched starters to avoid defeat to Forest Green Rovers and while they were very impressive in their opener against Arsenal they struggled a bit more at Crystal Palace last weekend.

There’s certainly nothing to be concerned about just yet if you’re a Bees fan but Aston Villa will be a real test for them, especially with how well Dean Smith knows the club.

Home advantage gives Villa the edge

The Villains have won four of their last five games in all competitions and that includes excellent victories over Spurs and Chelsea at the back end of last season. Brentford look like they can handle the Premier League but we have already seen home advantage in full swing since fans returned and that could make the difference at Villa Park.

Brentford have only won four of their last 11 away games in all competitions and I expect them to fall to their first defeat on Saturday. An Aston Villa win and a 2-1 correct score prediction – Villa have conceded in four of their last five league games – is my preference on Saturday.

I’m also backing Anwar El Ghazi in the anytime goalscorer market. The 26-year-old has scored three goals in his last two competitive appearances and is on penalty duty for Villa. He got into double figures in the Premier League last season and looks set to continue his fine form.

Aston Villa predicted lineup: Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Young; Luiz, Ramsey, McGinn; Buendia, El Ghazi, Ings

Brentford predicted lineup: Raya; Ajer, Jansson, Pinnock; Canos, Onyeka, Norgaard, Janelt, Henry; Mbeumo, Toney
