Friday 8pm: Brentford v Brighton
TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League

The Draw

Brentford find themselves in a bit of a rut after a promising start to the season. Thomas Frank’s side have taken just one point from their last three games, scoring one goal and conceding eight.

They were a calamity in Saturday’s 5-1 defeat at Newcastle and face a formidable Brighton side on Friday night that appears to have had little trouble adjusting to life post-Graham Potter. Roberto De Zerbi has yet to oversee a win since taking over at Brighton, but their performances against Liverpool and Tottenham were both encouraging.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

Brighton fully merited their 3-3 draw at Anfield and were unlucky not to take anything from the defeat to Tottenham last week, falling victim to Antonio Conte’s ability to oversee a 1-0 victory. This is De Zerbi’s best chance so far to record his first victory as Brighton manager, but it won’t be easy.

The majority of Brentford’s good results this season have come at home, with seven of the ten points they have picked up this season being won in front of their own fans. Brentford, however, have won just twice this season, while Brighton have only tasted defeat on two occasions. A Draw seems the likeliest result on Friday night.

Ivan Toney to Score Anytime

Ivan Toney has been Brentford’s most dangerous player by quite a distance this season. Toney has scored six of Brentford’s 16 league goals, at least four more than any other player at the club.

He has scored four of Brentford’s last six league goals, including an incredible hat-trick in the 5-2 win over Leeds last month. He is by far the most likely Brentford player to find the back of the net on Friday and Toney to Score Anytime is a good price.

Danny Welbeck to Have Two or More Shots on Target

Brighton’s brilliant start to the season would be ever better if Danny Welbeck knew how to finish. Welbeck has never been known for his prolific goal-scoring ability, but zero goals after eight games is simply not good enough for a Premier League striker.

That is not to say that Welbeck doesn’t perform an important role in this Brighton team. His performances have generally been good this season and he has been on the end of some glorious opportunities, attempting 16 shots in his eight appearances at a rate of two per game.

He is likely to get chances against a Brentford side that has conceded 17 goals this season and, again, Welbeck is good value to find the target on two or more occasions on Friday night.

Under 10.5 Corners

Neither Brighton nor Brentford tend to win a lot of corners in the Premier League this season. Brighton’s average of 4.1 corners per game is among the most average in the division, while Brentford’s average of 4.9 is the exact average for all Premier League teams.

Brentford concede an average of 4.6 corners per game, meaning their games have seen an average of 9.5 corners this season. Brighton, on the other hand, concede an average of just 3.8 corners per game, meaning their games have seen an average of just 7.9 corners. It is incredibly unlikely that we will see Under 10.5 Corners on Friday night.
