Brentford go to Villa Park for the first time in over 60 years having never beaten Aston Villa.

Brentford are buoyed by a tremendous 2-0 victory down in Brighton. Villa had plenty of chances against Nottingham Forest but could only muster a draw – Forest scoring a late equaliser.

The difference in spending power between the two teams is enormous. With Villa – who have a £115m turnover compared to Brentford’s £10m. The team spent £50m in the summer and are hoping to kickstart their season with a win against a Bees team who spent less than 1/20th of that in the last window.
