Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Following a 1-0 loss to Everton, Brentford will look to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Leicester on Saturday afternoon. The Bees have been impressive at home ground this season, and, as a result, the bookies see them as favourites to beat the Foxes in front of home fans. Both Lewis-Potter and Strakosha are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Meanwhile, Leicester experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Chelsea, and seeing that Brentford are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the match. All Justin, Faes, Kristiansen, Bertrand, and Tielemans are out of contention with injuries, speaking of the visiting side. Keep in mind, though, that Brentford have not defeated Leicester City since April 24, 1954.
Highlighted Player (Pontus Jansson):
Sweden international defender Pontus Jansson started his career at a local club Arlovs Bl before moving to Swedish giants Malmo in 2006. Three years later the talented centre-back was given his first-team debut, off the back of a highly successful season which saw his pick up a prestigious Academy Player of the Year award.
During his five-year stay with Malmo Jansson went on to play 98 league matches, score 6 goals and impose himself as a commanding presence for his club. A ball-playing central defender who likes to keep things clean and simple, Jansson boasts impressive composure and never backs under pressure. The Swedish defender was plucked by the Serie A side Torino in 2014 where he failed to make his big international break.
Three years into his stay in Italy – and a season-long loan at Leeds United after – Pontus Jansson moved to Elland Road on permanent basis. His work-rate, great positioning and impressive physicall ability made him one of the hottest properties in the summer of 2018 with Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and other Premier League sides expressing interest in high services, but Jansson opted to remain at Leeds and work under Marcelo Bielsa.
