After a famous 2-0 win over Arsenal on the opening day of the season, Brentford has lost part of its sting, drawn twice and lost once, while scoring just a single goal in its last three Premier League games.
They are currently 10th on the log, which coach Thomas Frank would undoubtedly have taken at this early point in the club’s first season in the top division in 74 years. However, he would like his Bees to rediscover their winning habits with a tricky away game against the Wolves, who have won six of their eight home games against newly promoted players since their return to the Premier League in 2018/19. They have also won three of their last four league games against Brentford.
The London team pride themselves on their attacking game but are aware of the threat wolves pose on the counterattack. In addition, Frank will want his front line to prevail more. Only Norwich (8) have had fewer shots on goal than Brentford (9) this season in the Premier League, with the Bees only scoring one shot on goal last time against Brighton.

Wolves vs Brentford is scheduled for Saturday, September 18, 2021 at 12:30 p.m. BST at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton.

Wolves vs. Brentford Team News
Thomas Frank spoke in glowing terms about the connection between strikers Bryan Mbuemo and Ivan Toney despite failing to find the net in last week’s loss to Brighton and they are likely to take the lead again with the French looking for his first Goal in the Premier League.
Frank Onkyenka could return to the starting XI to replace Brighton after his comeback after an absence forced by the coronavirus. Josh Dasilva remains absent for a long time.
Wolves versus Brentford prediction
Whenever two different contrasting styles collide, the outcome of the outcome can be difficult to predict. Brentford takes care of the boss’s possession and moves the ball with precision as the wolves live by their nickname and hunt in packs as they unleash devastating counter-attacks that take advantage of the opponent’s weakness.
In the end, it often depends on which team has the better players and only die-hard Brentford fans can claim that their camp is better equipped. With the Wolves finding their groove and taking their first win of the season with a 2-0 away win at Watford after three painful 1-0 defeats to Leicetser, Tottenham and Manchester United, it’s hard to look beyond a comfortable home win.
