Burnley – Brentford Predictions and Preview

  • When Burnley went 2-0 up against West Ham last weekend, there was an air of inevitability that eventually they’d throw their advantage away, and so it proved as they were lucky to escape with a 2-2 draw. Those two points lost in the capital brought Burnley’s total points dropped from winning positions this season to an eye-watering 20, which is undoubtedly part of the reason as to why the Clarets find themselves near certainties to return to the Championship.
  • For most sides battling relegation, a return home would be a blessing, but not for Burnley, who have lost a league-high 11 home league games this term (W1, D2). The visit of Brentford may be timely then as they’ve won both home H2Hs against the Bees since the turn of the millennium, although having lost the last two H2Hs anywhere, Burnley are at risk of losing three in a row for the first time since 1949!
  • As much as Burnley may be pleased to see Brentford, the Bees will likely feel similar, as they desperately need a win to steer them further clear of the drop zone. Coming into this clash with just a five-point cushion to the bottom three after losing narrowly at Arsenal last weekend, Brentford are a side that those immediately below them are looking at dragging into the dog fight, and on the back of a five-match winless league run (D1, L4), Brentford are falling out of form at the worst possible time.
  • They’ve been particularly poor on the road, where they’ve lost eight of their last nine league games (W1). Thomas Frank’s side have got the added motivation here of knowing they could complete a H2H league double for the first time since 1934/35 after winning the reverse 3-0 back in October, but being the only Premier League club to have dropped more points from winning positions this season than Burnley (28), they’re unlikely to rest easy even if they hit the front.
  • Players to watch: David Datro Fofana struck the opener inside 15 minutes against West Ham last weekend, but his other three goal involvements at Burnley came after half-time. Brentford’s Saman Ghoddos enjoys this fixture, scoring both his Premier League goals against the Clarets, with both serving as the game’s last having come off the bench.
  • Hot stat: Brentford have conceded a league-high 17 headed goals this season.
