Leicester are yet to follow up a midweek match with a weekend victory this season so look uneasy favourites when they make a tricky trip to Brentford on Sunday. Wednesday’s Europa League visit to Russia was their fourth midweek game with the others followed by a 2-1 defeat at Brighton and 2-2 draws with Burnley and Crystal Palace.
There was plenty of late drama in the previous matches involving Arsenal and Aston Villa and neutrals will hope for similar excitement on Friday night. The Gunners rescued a 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace with a last-gasp equaliser while Villa threw away a two-goal lead in a 3-2 defeat against Wolves.
Southampton got the monkey off their back with a first league win of the season last weekend and will want to double their tally against still-winless Burnley. Summer arrival Armando Broja justified Ralph Hasenhuttl’s decision to leave Adam Armstrong on the bench with his first Premier League goal to secure a 1-0 victory over Leeds.
