Brentford have won their last two Premier League matches, as many as they had in their previous 14 combined (D2 L10). The Bees last won three consecutive top-flight contests in September 1946.
Ivan Toney has scored seven goals in his last five Premier League appearances for Brentford, having netted four in his first 19 this term. In his last two outings he has netted three goals at Norwich City and two against Burnley – the last player to score 2+ goals in three consecutive Premier League appearances was Tammy Abraham (September 2019), while the last to do so for a promoted side was Kevin Phillips (December 1999 with Sunderland).
Leicester City have won each of their last five Premier League matches against promoted sides, including all three this season. They’ve never won six consecutive top-flight encounters with promoted sides before.
Brentford have scored a league-high 50 per cent of their Premier League goals from set-piece situations this season (16/32, including penalties), while Leicester have conceded a competition-high 47 per cent of their league goals in 2021/22 from such situations (21/45).
