Wolves look to make it five-straight Premier League matches unbeaten when they visit stumbling Brentford at the Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday (watch live, 10am ET online via Peacock Premium).
Bees boss Thomas Frank might resent the stumbling comments, as he noted that Brentford was superior to Manchester United but stymied by David De Gea before falling apart on Wednesday.
Wolves haven’t played since besting Saints 3-1 at the Molineux, a win that came two weeks after a rare win at Old Trafford. Throw-in a draw with Chelsea and two postponed matches, and Wolves will be rested and in-form compared to their hosts.
The Bees have just one win from their last six but it did come at home, a 2-1 win over Villa on Jan. 2. Can they get back to winning ways and edge away from the bottom three? Their 10 points above the relegation zone is relatively healthy but a win sure would fortify their status.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Brentford vs Wolves.
