The English Premier League returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Brentford and Southampton go head-to-head at the Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday.

The Saints will look to complete a league double over the hosts after cruising to a comfortable 4-1 victory in January’s reverse fixture.

Brentford were sent crashing back down to earth last Monday, as they fell to a humbling 3-0 defeat against Manchester United. Before that, the Bees were on a four-game unbeaten run, claiming three wins and a draw.

With 40 points from 35 games, Brentford are 14th in the standings, only above Southampton on goal difference.

Southampton, meanwhile, failed to find their feet last time out, as they were beaten 2-1 by Crystal Palace on home turf.

The Saints are now winless in three league games, managing just one victory in their last ten outings across competitions. This poor run has been down to their struggles in defence. They have kept just one clean sheet in their last 11 games, while shipping in 26 goals.
