Brentford v Leeds: match preview | Premier League


Brentford can reflect on an expertly navigated first Premier League season, in which they sit 11th. That is two places lower than Leeds’ finish in 2020-21 and they will want to avoid mimicking what came next for Jesse Marsch’s side. The equation for Leeds is simple: they must get a positive result and hope Burnley gain fewer points than them at home to Newcastle. Survival is not in their hands and Marsch may rush Patrick Bamford back from injury in order to help them complete their side of the bargain. Thomas Frank hopes this will not be the influential Christian Eriksen’s final outing for the Bees. Nick Ames
