Brentford and Norwich City have experienced very different starts to life in the Premier League, but the visiting Canaries will hope to turn the tide and swat the Bees at Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday (start time 11am ET on Peacock Premium).
Brentford’s lost three-straight but sits 12th and only needs look across the pitch to Norwich to see how tough life can get in the Premier League.
Norwich has lost eight of its 10 matches and drawn just twice in sitting eight points back of safety after just 10 weeks of the season.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Brentford vs Norwich City.

It feels like this is either the perfect tonic for Brentford to put its season back on easy mid-table track, or for real worry to creep into Thomas Frank’s camp. Maybe Norwich can fight its way to a point. Maybe? Brentford 1-1 Norwich City.
