Sutton's predictions: Leicester v Brentford

  • Published

A new season - and a new Premier League predictions expert.

BBC pundit Chris Sutton is taking on the challenge from Mark Lawrenson for the 2022-23 campaign and will try to pick the correct scores for every top-flight game against a variety of guests - and this season you can get involved too.

Joining Sutton this week is football commentator and BBC Fantasy 606 co-host Alistair Bruce-Ball.

Sutton's prediction: 1-1

Leicester didn't have a disastrous campaign last season but it was a step back for them after two fifth-placed finishes.

They have seen keeper Kasper Schmeichel leave this month and if they lose Wesley Fofana and Maddison too, then that would be a major blow for them.

Sampdoria midfielder Mikkel Damsgaard will be a good signing for Brentford if they can get him in, but I am a bit worried about how second-season syndrome will affect the Bees.

This game is another hard one to call.

Leicester had a nightmare at defending set-pieces last season - and Brentford are exceptional at them - but the Foxes have got some very talented attacking players.

ABB's prediction: 2-1
