Brentford vs Norwich Prediction: Norwich to SHOCK Brentford?
Brentford will take on a struggling Norwich City in the Premier League on Saturday at the Brentford Community Stadium.
Brentford have enjoyed their stay in the Premier League so far as they have collected 12 points from the first 10 matches and are currently in 12th place. They were cruising in the top flight having registered an opening day victory over Arsenal. They managed to grab a point against Liverpool and also picked up a late win over West Ham United before the international break.But since then they have faltered and have lost three matches on the road. However, they will have a golden chance to record their first win as they host the bottom placed Canaries.
Nothing seems to have been working for Norwich. The Canaries have just managed two points from the first ten games and are looming towards relegation if things don’t improve rapidly. They headed straight to the second tier following their last promotions and it would take a huge amount of work to keep their Premier League status intact.

Brentford vs Norwich Prediction: Recent Form and Detailed Tactical Analysis
Brentford are looking for their first win since the last international break.
Brentford lost to Chelsea 1-0 and then fell to another defeat against Leicester City. They were completely outplayed by relegation contender Burnley in the last match and will be hoping to hit the ground against Norwich.
Norwich have two of their last three matches. They drew 0-0 with Brighton & Hove Albion and were haplessly thrashed 7-0 by Chelsea. Leeds United piled more misery on them with another defeat.
Brentford had to come through the promotion playoffs to make their first appearance in the Premier League after a wait of 74 long years.It hasn’t been the case like other small teams as the Bees have coped up with the rugged and tough nature of the top flight. Thomas Frank has displayed his tactical masterclass wasn’t built in a day and he does have the firepower to upset the big teams.
He switched to a back three this season and their transition has been remarkable. They press the ball high and can move the ball from the back effortlessly.Ivan Toney has been involved in all the matches and he might not have scored that amount of goal but his hold up play has invited other players to get involved in the attack. With a good January transfer window, they might be able to seal a place in the top half of the table.
With the absence of Ben Gibson who was sent off in the last match Daniel Farke has a massive problem in front of him. Farke’s capability came under heavy scrutiny this season but the manager has won the Championship two times in the last three seasons which speaks volumes about his potential.Billy Gilmour hasn’t had the season he would have hoped and the Chelsea loanee might get another chance as Farke would be eager to field his best lineup against Brentford.
Farke too switched to a three man defence but it hasn’t brought any pleasure to him as only two draws in 10 matches means they could be the first team to confirm relegation later on this season.The departure of Emiliano Buendia to Aston Villa has hurt their goal scoring aspects as the Argentine international set up 16 and grabbed another 15 goals in the Championship last season.With the international break starting after this weekend Farke will have the chance to rectify his mistakes.

Honestly wouldn’t be surprised to see Toney commit for Jamaica… That England set up is riddled and clearly certain names will be picked regardless of form. Joking aside Tammy Abraham is playing shocking in a piss poor Italian league yet somehow gets the nod
