Brentford will be looking to continue their momentum when they travel to face Leicester in the Premier League.

The Bees moved eight points clear of the relegation zone with a 2-0 win over Burnley last time out, which followed on from their 3-1 success at Norwich the previous week.

It means Thomas Frank can breathe slightly easier after a run of nine games without a win had dragged the Bees into a relegation tussle.

Nevertheless, here's how Brentford could line up.

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

David Raya (GK) - The Spaniard's return to form between the posts has coincided with the improvement in Brentford's results.

Kristoffer Ajer (RB) - Has experience as a full back at Celtic, galloping down the flanks with real purpose.

Pontus Jansson (CB) - Endured a disappointing run to start the year, but he has regained his composure in recent weeks.

Ethan Pinnock (CB) - Boasts a cultured left foot and is capable of driving into midfield when required.

Rico Henry (LB) - Indefatigable energy on the left-hand side, he is always looking to supply Toney with deliveries from wide.

2. Midfielders

Vitaly Janelt (RM) - Has been hugely impressive in recent weeks, starting all but two games for the Bees in 2022.

Christian Norgaard (CM) - His defensive nous has allowed Frank to deploy Eriksen in a central position.

Christian Eriksen (CM) - A gorgeous assist to tee up Toney last weekend, which is exactly what Brentford have lacked this season.

Sergi Canos (LM) - Played the majority of this campaign as a right wing-back, which makes his recent shift over to the opposite flank even more remarkable.

3. Forwards

Bryan Mbeumo (ST) - Has proven an effective foil for Toney in attack, using his pace to stretch defences down the sides.

Ivan Toney (ST) - Has scored all of Brentford's five goals in their previous two victories, hitting a rich vein of form when the Bees required it most.
