Brentford vs Brighton & Hove Albion Prediction

Brentford have enjoyed an excellent start to their Premier League adventure. The Bees are a good side who have shown that they are no pushovers. Manager Thomas Frank will hope that this momentum continues after the international break.

Brighton & Hove Albion, on the other hand, have also started well. The Seagulls deserved better last season, and despite selling star centre-back Ben White they have not looked vulnerable. Attack remains a concern, though.

A draw seems to be an ideal result.

Prediction: Brentford 1-1 Brighton & Hove Albion
