Brentford may fancy their chances at Aston Villa after an impressive start to life in the Premier League.
Leaving London for the first time, having beaten Arsenal and been held at Crystal Palace, confidence is high as they look to earn another scalp.
Villa appear to be finding their feet after the exit of Jack Grealish and some good summer business, and former Bees striker Ollie Watkins may miss out through injury.

Aston Villa are sweating on the fitness of Ollie Watkins (knee) and Leon Bailey (thigh). Bertrand Traore, Trezeguet and Morgan Sanson are out.
Brentford have no fresh injury concerns, with Josh Dasilva their only absentee.
Aston Villa vs Brentford prediction
Aston Villa’s pre-season expectations were high, but they have flattered to deceive in the Premier League so far this season. A troubling loss at Watford was followed by a win over Newcastle, though that should be par for the course for their squad.
Meanwhile, Brentford beat Arsenal before matching Crystal Palace and have enough in their tank to take points of Villa. I’m plumping for a score draw.
Aston Villa 1-1 Brentford
