This Sunday sees Villa go head to head with Brentford at Villa Park – Kick-off 2:00pm GMT.

It’s a clash of seventeenth vs tenth, as Villa host Brentford at Villa Park.

Aston Villa have nine points to their name, going into this tie

It was three points secured for Villa in their last fixture, beating Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage.

Also, some statistics are more relevant than others they say, and two losses for Villa seems very relevant. Their position is seventeenth in the League and they have nine points, that is, 2W, 6L and 3D having won two games, drawn three fixtures, and lost six meetings.

When Villa host Brentford, they will do so on the back of two victories, one dart, and two defeat on their own ground.

A victory for Aston Villa would put them on 12 points.

Villa’s squad will likely be depleted of five of their key players when they start on Sunday, due to injury or illness.

Brentford arrive at this meeting, having secured 14 points so far this season

When Brentford last turned out in the Premier League, the result was a disappointing draw 0-0 against Chelsea at Brentford Community Stadium. They will be hoping for a better result this time.

Also, a draw statistic of four in eight fixtures is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Thomas Frank’s men wishes for ultimately. With 14 points (3W, 3L and 5D), they are established in tenth position in the League having won three matches, drawn five fixtures, and lost three games.

Brentford have drawn three matches and lost two matches of their five League matches away from home this season.

Brentford will have 17 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Good Attacking Performance

Brentford have a good scoring record this season, with 18 netted so far (15 from open play and three penalties). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Ivan Toney (8), Pelenda Da Silva (2), and Yoane Wissa (2). Brentford have shown a poor consistency in defence so far, having conceded 17 goals in their previous fixtures.

Brentford’s squad has depth, but even so, Thomas Frank is likely to be missing four of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.
