Brentford will have home field advantage this weekend, as they look to end their winless run in the Premier League. Despite going three without a win, the Bees only suffered a first league defeat of the campaign last weekend, as they were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Newcastle United at St. James’ Park.
Draws have been an issue for the Bees throughout the season so far, and that is mirrored by the fact that no side in the Premier League has picked up more home ties since the start of last season. That includes three successive home draws in their opening matches at the Brentford Community Stadium this term.
Things are looking extremely bleak for Everton at present, as the Toffees sit in the bottom three places after failing to win their opening five matches this term. They have picked up just a point from their fixtures this season, which marks their worst start to a top-flight season since the 1994-95 campaign.
The Toffees can’t take much confidence from their recent matches against the Bees, as they are winless in their last four. In fact, you need to go back to September 1952 for the last league win that Everton picked up against Brentford. Something needs to change at the club, but there has been limited evidence to suggest that a change in fortunes could come this weekend.
Brentford vs Everton Prediction
Everton’s start to the season would be a huge concern. However, the draw could be an interesting betting angle this weekend, as two of the last four have ended in ties. Brentford’s record of drawing matches in front of their home fans also supports the trend.
