Tip Reasoning

  • Brentford have lost their last three games to nil
  • Aston Villa have won two of their three away trips under Gerrard
  • Brentford have lost four of six clashes at home to sides above them

Worrying slide for Bees

Brentford have lost each of their last three games and Thomas Frank has seen his team slide down the table as a result. The hosts have failed to score in any of those defeats and they come into this clash sitting 14th, only nine points clear of the drop zone.

Brentford can’t afford to get comfortable, while they face another tricky clash this weekend. The Bees have lost five times at home this term, only Norwich and Watford have lost more. With Aston Villa looking much improved under Steven Gerrard, the hosts should be worried.

Gerrard aiming for Villa return

Steven Gerrard missed Villa’s last two games thanks to a positive COVID test, but he’ll be hopeful of a return to the dugout this week. With or without him present, his appointment has clearly helped the Villains make strides.

The visitors have lost six of nine away trips this term, but they’ve won two of their three under Gerrard. The visitors’ only away loss in that time was a 1-0 defeat in Gerrard’s return to Anfield, which makes Villa look tempting in this trip.

Visitors the value

Aston Villa have won four of seven games under Gerrard, losing the other three against the current top three. That’s nothing to be ashamed of for a club of Villa’s resources, with the club moving up the table under their new boss.

That’s a worry for Brentford, who have lost four of six home meetings with the sides currently above them in the table. The visitors have proven they can match all but the very best in the league, as their record against sides outside the top six this term is seven wins, one draw and four defeats.

With Villa picking up wins under Gerrard – including some solid results on the road – they look like the best bet for this one. Brentford are having issues going forward and I’m backing another loss to nil for them, with a 2-0 villa victory my correct score prediction.

Brentford predicted lineup: Fernandez; Pinnock, Jansson, Sorensen; Roerslev, Baptiste, Norgaard, Onyeka, Canos; Toney, Mbeumo

Aston Villa predicted lineup: Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Hause, Targett; McGinn, Luiz, Sanson; Buendia, Watkins, Young
