Wolves vs Brentford: How we expect Brentford to line up against Wolves today


B

rentford travel to Wolves in contrasting form to their hosts. Last week Brentford tasted defeat for the first time in the Premier League while Wolves achieved their inaugural win of the campaign.

Thomas Frank’s team pride themselves on a possession based approach but will be conscious of the counter attacking threat that Wolves possess.

A lack of goals is also a concern for the Bees, having scored just once in three matches since their opening round 2-0 win over Arsenal. Frank, however, is unperturbed.

“I think we have the offensive quality,” the manager said. “I have a massive belief in Bryan Mbeumo and Ivan Toney, our two strikers. They look brilliant together and I believe there is much more to come from them.

“They are still learning, every single day. In Yoane Wissa we also have a very good player who will grow into it, and I believe we have other players in the team who can add that offensive bit as well.

“But I’m pretty sure we are never going to have 23 shots on target on average like City and Chelsea and these clubs.”

Both strikers are expected to start in front of a midfield three with two wingbacks offering width.

Brentford likely XI: Raya, Pinnock, Jansson, Ajer, Henry, Canos, Janelt, Norgaard, Baptiste, Toney, Mbeumo

Brentford squad from: Raya, Pinnock, Jansson, Ajer, Henry, Canos, Janelt, Norgaard, Onyega, Toney, Mbeumo, Fernández, Goode, Jørgensen, Forss, Thompson, Wissa, Ghoddos, Valencia, Jeanvier, Fosu, Peart-Harris, Baptiste, Bidstrup, Roerslev, Zamburek, Racic.
