Sunday’s Premier League clash between Brentford and Everton is a fixture between two teams struggling to find form. Brentford are winless in five straight games. After a great start to their first-ever Premier League season, the Bees have failed to win five straight matches with four of those games ending in losses.

Brentford vs Everton Preview 

Everton are just as inconsistent this season under Rafael Benitez as they were under Carlo Ancelotti last term. Six straight Premier League games have finished without wins for Everton. Four of those six games ended in defeat, including last weekend’s 3-0 loss to Manchester City.

Brentford go into matchday 13 in 14th place in the Premier League. Just four points separate the Bees from the relegation zone ahead of the weekend. Everton have taken 15 points from 36 this season. They are 11th prior to visiting the Brentford Community Stadium. Six points separate the Toffees from the drop.

After a managerial shakeup in the league during the November international break, Everton manager Benitez leads bookies’ best betting odds to be the next man sacked. Leading bookies have Benitez at odds of 4/1 to be the next manager sacked. Will Brentford win and push Benitez closer to the Goodison Park exit?

Brentford vs Everton Betting Odds

 

Everton are at the bottom of the Premier League form table. The Toffees took just two points from the last 18 on offer in the league. Just four goals were scored by Everton during that six-game time span. The defence conceded 12 to opponents. Bookies’ best betting odds on an Everton win at full-time are at 12/5.

Brentford took four points from the last 18 available. They did little better than Everton. The Bees conceded 12 goals and scored eight over the course of their last six fixtures. Brentford are at the best betting odds of 13/10 to win at full-time versus Everton.

These teams have no recent history; therefore, no trends can be found. The Bees are on a three-match home losing streak in the league, which doesn’t bode well for a win on Sunday against Everton. However, Everton have lost back-to-back away matches and are winless in their last four road games.

Benitez’s team is tanking. Despite leading bookies’ best betting odds to be the next manager sacked, there is no evidence that owner Farhad Moshiri is ready to fire the ex-Liverpool coach. With Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Norwich City, and now Manchester United changing coaches, the market for a new manager is limited of high-quality bosses.

Brentford vs Everton Team News

Brentford manager Thomas Frank has eight players on the injury list going into the game this weekend. Forward Yoane Wissa, Mathias Jorgensen, and Mathias Jensen are all suffering from injuries, but could be passed fit to play versus Everton. The trio would be a massive boost to Brentford’s available squad.

While the trio is likely to be passed fit, Mads Sorensen, David Raya, Kristoffer Ajer, Julian Jeanvier, and Joshua Dasilva are all ruled out of the game. Goalkeeper Raya’s absence will have a major impact on the team. Raya has missed Brentford’s last three games with a knee injury. The Bees conceded seven times without Raya in net.

Benitez could be without up to eight players as well. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is ruled out once more due to a thigh injury. He is due back for matchday 14, however. Mason Holgate, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Richarlison, Yerry Mina, Tom Davies, Andre Gomes, and Demarai Gray are all ruled out of the fixture due to their injuries respectively.

Everton have not been helped by fitness issues and with eight players ruled out of the game, Benitez’s squad will be stretched thin.

Brentford vs Everton H2H

Neither Brentford nor Everton are in form going into the match on Sunday. Injuries have taken their toll on both squads. Brentford are winless in five straight games and Everton are winless in six straight matches. Both clubs are desperate to win Sunday’s game and move up the Premier League table. As it stands, relegation to the Championship is a possibility for both teams. Everton have the better squad on paper, but playing at home, Brentford could snatch points.
