Brentford have settled into Premier League life well, and were particularly impressive in their 3-3 draw with Liverpool.
While the Bees’ early-season form has been good, their top priority remains to preserve their top-flight status under Thomas Frank.
We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Brentford – from their next league game, to the latest football betting odds.
When is the next Brentford Premier League game?
Brentford face their fourth London derby of the season this weekend when they host Chelsea at the Brentford Community Stadium. Only four points separate the sides after seven games, something that is testament to the work done by Thomas Frank.
What are the odds that Brentford win the next game?
Brentford are 11/2 outsiders to beat table-topping Chelsea. And you can back them to get on the scoresheet and concede, like they did against Liverpool, at EVS.
What’s the latest Brentford transfer and injury news?
Mads Sorensen and Josh Dasilva remain long-term absentees.
Who are Brentford’s key players?
Brentford’s star man is without doubt Ivan Toney. Last season in the Championship he netted 31 goals en route to being nominated as the Championship player of the season. Brentford will need their skipper Pontus Jansson to be as effective in the Premier League as he was in the Championship, while his leadership qualities need no justification.

What are the Brentford odds to avoid Premier League relegation?
Even the most-passionate Brentford fans don’t expect them to win the league this year and the odds of 500/1 reflect that. Avoiding the drop has always been the main aim, despite their solid start. They are currently seventh-favourites to go down at 8/1.
The Bees are also 9/4 to finish in the top half of the league, which would be a huge achievement.
Who is the manager of Brentford?
Thomas Frank replaced Dean Smith as Brentford’s manager in 2018 after previously being an assistant at the Bees from 2016. Since then, he has taken them to the Championship play-offs twice, navigating it successfully on the second attempt. After a very brief playing career which mainly consisted of amateur football, Frank turned his attentions to management relatively early on and will be hoping to make a name for himself in the Premier League.
Where is Brentford’s stadium?
The Brentford Community Stadium is situated in Brentford, west London. It has a capacity of 17,250 and is used by both Brentford Football Club as well as the London Irish rugby union team.
