On paper there is every chance this could be the most entertaining clash of the weekend. Brentford could not score an equaliser against Chelsea but they came away with even more friends; Leicester were dazzling against Manchester United and hope a mediocre start to the campaign is now behind them. Yoane Wissa will not be around to rival his late heroics against Liverpool and West Ham: the Bees forward has an ankle injury. Brendan Rodgers must ponder whether he can accommodate Patson Daka, the four-goal hero of Wednesday’s Europa League win at Spartak Moscow. Nick Ames
