How will Brentford fare in the top-flight?

 

Update: 05.10.21

 

Having forced Liverpool to a share of the spoils in a 3-3 thriller and subsequently edging past West Ham United to the tune of 2-1 in East London, Brentford will head into the second international break of the season on the back of an excellent run during which they have lost just one of their opening seven Premier League games.

Brentford were fancied by many to drop straight back down to the Championship at the first time of asking following their promotion up to the top-flight via the play-offs at the end of the 2020/21 campaign. Nevertheless, Thomas Frank’s men have exceeded all expectations and head into the second international break of the 2021/22 season in the top seven of the Premier League table.

The Bees currently sit above city rivals Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and Arsenal thanks to this solid start to the campaign and the bookies have lengthened the odds on them suffering relegation at the end of their first ever Premier League campaign.

As things stand, Brentford are now out at 10/1 to be relegated down to the Championship this season while they are a massive 66/1 to finish at the foot of the pile. The odds on Brentford finishing the campaign in the top half of the Premier League table have shortened from 10/3 to 9/4 while they are now a 1/3 shot to finish in the bottom half.

The more optimistic can back Thomas Frank’s men at 16/1 to finish in the top six while the odds on them clinching a top-four berth have shortened from 150/1 to 100/1. Anyone who fancies the Bees from the Premier League title can get them at 500/1. Worth a shot? Of course it is!!!

Having thrashed League Two side Oldham Athletic 7-0 in the League Cup last week, Brentford were involved in a six-goal thriller at home to Liverpool in their last outing.

Yoane Wissa found the back of the net late in the day to earn for Brentford a point at home to league leaders Liverpool in what was a thrilling 3-3 draw. This was undeniably an excellent result for a side many had tipped for immediate relegation back to the Championship at the close of the campaign and while we may be in the early stages of the season, it is becoming clear that the Bees aren’t going to be the pushovers that many believed they would be.

As things stand, Thomas Frank’s men sit in ninth position in the league table with a superior goal difference keeping them above London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal. Indeed the Bees have lost just one of their opening six league games with two wins during this time and this bodes pretty well for the rest of the campaign.

Few actually believe that the West London outfit will actually pick up any silverware this season or even mount a genuine challenge for a European berth, however that wasn’t the main aim for boss Thomas Frank. Indeed Frank’s only real remit this term was to ensure top-flight survival for more than one campaign and clearly he is working hard to achieve this aim. His efforts and those of his team are being rewarded with some decent results and it’s certainly not fanciful to believe that the Bees may well manage a top-half finish to the season given that this is where they currently reside after six games.

Update: 22.09.21

Brentford’s first defeat of the 2021/22 campaign came against Brighton & Hove Albion earlier this month and they have responded in excellent fashion with back-to-back wins across competitions.

The 7-0 thrashing of League Two strugglers Oldham Athletic in the League Cup on Tuesday evening was hardly a surprising result but the 2-0 win away to Wolverhampton Wanderers just three days earlier in the Premier League was just reward for an excellent performance. This win at Molineux lifted the Bees into the top half of the Premier League table and the bookies reacted by lengthening the odds in them being relegated back to the Championship to as much as 5/1.

As things stand, Thomas Frank’s men sit in ninth position in the Premier League table with their five games returning two wins, two draws and a single defeat. In fairness, this is probably a better start than even the most optimistic Bees fans could have realistically hoped for and while a European berth is hardly on the cards, it isn’t unreasonable to suggest that Brentford could make their stay in the top-flight lengthier than just a single season.

Update: 15.09.21

Brentford suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season when they went 1-0 down at home to Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend, however they remain comfortably in the middle of the Premier League table as things stand.

A 90th minute strike from Brighton’s Leandro Trossard put to an end Brentford’s unbeaten start to the 2021/22 Premier League campaign, the evenly-contested match seemingly destined to end with the spoils being shared. Nevertheless after four games, the Bees can be more than satisfied with how things have panned out in their first ever foray into the Premier League. Thomas Frank’s men opened their account with an excellent 2-0 win over Arsenal and having shared the spoils with Crystal Palace (0-0) and Aston Villa (1-1) in subsequent back-to-back away games, they can look to the rest of the season with a large degree of confidence.

Frank’s main remit will have been to avoid relegation back to the Championship and thus far he has been doing a decent job. It remains to be seen how the Bees will fare for the rest of the season but going on their opening few games, they’re not going to be pushovers.

Update: 01.09.21

 

Newly-promoted Brentford are now three games into their first ever Premier League campaign and thus far they have remained unbeaten across all competitions.

Most pundits expected Championship play-off winners Brentford to take a while finding their feet in then Premier League but quite the opposite has been true. A 2-0 win over Arsenal in their season opener has been followed by back-to-back league draws with Crystal Palace (0-0) and Aston Villa (1-1), both away from home. Throw in a 3-1 win over League Two outfit Forest Green Rovers in the first round of the League Cup and it’s clear that the Bees are very much up for the challenge.

Indeed, while we’re obviously in the very early stages of the new campaign, it would appear that Brentford aren’t out of their depth although in fairness they are yet to come up against the big sides in the division, Arsenal certainly not in that category right now.

The bookies are optimistic as to Brentford’s chances of avoiding relegation straight back down to the Championship at the end of the season, Thomas Frank’s men way down the market at odds of 3/1.

While the odds have lengthened for Brentford dropping down to the second tier at the first time of asking, they have also drifted in the market to be bottom of the table at the end of the campaign. They are deemed to be far more likely to finish in the bottom half of the league table however, the bookies going a general 1/7 that they finish in the lower half and 4/1 that they finish in the top half.

14/1  –  To Finish Bottom of Premier League

3/1  –  To be Relegated from Premier League

4/1  –  To Finish in Top Half of Premier League

1/7  –  To Finish in Bottom Half of Premier League

25/1 –  To Finish in Top Six of Premier League

125/1 – To Finish in Top Four of Premier League

Brentford’s first big test of the season came when they faced Arsenal in their opening match and it’s fair to say that they passed with flying colours.

Never before have Brentford graced the Premier League and in fairness few pundits gave them much of a chance in their opening game against Arsenal. The general consensus was that the Bees would take their time finding their feet in the top-flight and the Gunners went into this season opener as huge favourites.Nevertheless in what was generally a tight game, Brentford got the upper hand and goals in each half of the match saw Thomas Frank’s men run out 2-0 winners.

This was undoubtedly the big shock of the opening weekend of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign and it had a marked effect on the odds in the many Brentford markets. For a start, the price on the Bees finishing bottom of the Premier League have drifted noticeably from 5/1 to as much as 13/1 with some firms, while the odds on them being relegated have also drifted from Evens to a general 5/2.

Having got the upper hand against Arsenal in their season opener, Brentford will be in high spirits ahead of winnable meetings with Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Brighton & Hove Albion in their next three league outings.

Clearly Brentford are going to find things tough in their first ever Premier League campaign but the victory over the Gunners will have made other sides sit up and take notice.

 

Brentford Premier League Odds 2021/22

 

8/1  –  To Finish Bottom of Premier League

5/2  –  To be Relegated from Premier League

20/1 –  To Finish in Top Six of Premier League

66/1 –  To Finish in Top Four of Premier League

250/1 – To Win the 2021/22 Premier League Title

Brentford have thus far avoided defeat in their pre-season campaign but the big test will come when they lock horns with city rivals Arsenal in their opening Premier League outing on 13th August.

Brentford brushed aside Swansea City in the Championship play-off final and thus lifted themselves into the Premier League for the first time ever, however few will expect them to hit the ground running in the top flight. Indeed the likelihood is that the Bees will struggle in 2021/22 and they are one of the favourites to be relegated straight back down to the Championship at the end of the campaign.

They certainly couldn’t have wished for a much tougher start to the season and the visit of Arsenal will undoubtedly be a thoroughly testing encounter for Thomas Frank’s men, however should the hosts avoid defeat against the Gunners, then confidence will be lifted ahead of their subsequent meetings with Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Brighton & Hove Albion, sides against which the Bees can confidently expect some sort of return.

The big question is, where will Brentford finish at the end of the 2021/22 season? We take a look at the latest odds.
