High-flying Aston Villa’s surprise late push for the top four continues with a trip to a Brentford side whose own hopes of Europe are fading fast.
Villa’s superb 3-0 win over Newcastle last weekend was their fifth in a row and boosted them into sixth place, six points outside the Champions League spots.
Brentford have held hopes of a top-six finish for much of the season, but a winless run of five games – including defeats in the last three – has left them in ninth, seven points behind Villa.
The first meeting of the season ended in an emphatic 4-0 win for the Birmingham club, when Danny Ings struck twice between goals from Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins.
Kick-off is at 3.00pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
