They had also beaten both Manchester sides by an aggregate score of 6-1 before the turn of the year. Still, the Bees’ success on the field tells half the story of the revolutionary work that has taken place in west London over the past decade. While in the Championship, Brentford became one of the first sides to use data as their main tool for player recruitment and scouting. What followed, though, was even more radical– the club closing its Academy and setting up a B Team. Instead of an Academy, Brentford has invested in a vast scouting network. Rather than look at wins and losses the club has embraced Key Performance Metrics (KPMs) to determine player and club performance. By using this method, Brentford have been able to scout players who were undervalued in terms of their price point when purchased.

For Brentford, midfielders Frank Onyeka (thigh) and Shandon Baptiste (groin), defenders Kristoffer Ajer (knee) and Aaron Hickey (ankle), and goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha (ankle) all sat out the draw with Tottenham due to injury. The Opposition... Brentford have made light work of the jump to the Premier League over the past year and a half, but the Bees’ impressive top-flight return after a 64-year absence was just the continuation of an impressive rise that began just ten years ago. When you take a step back and realise promotion from EFL League One came just under a decade ago, their rise through the English football pyramid has been nothing short of remarkable.

At points, they will hound their opponent, win the ball high up the pitch, and then score from successful transitions. In particular, this gameplan was masterfully executed against Manchester United, where Brentford’s press caught the Red Devils cold, and resulted in a 4-0 win – a result that was arguably their finest in the Premier League, until they made the trip to the Etihad Stadium in November. That transitional quality aside, the quality on the ball from goalkeeper David Raya means Brentford are able to build from the back comfortably.
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.

In effect, spotting talent before anyone else did. They then took a gamble, and if the player performed, the Bees raked in the profits as their value rocketed. If they didn’t, the loss was minimal. The results have followed too. Brentford made an estimated £100m from the sales of stars Saïd Benrahma, Ollie Watkins and Neil Maupay. Ivan Toney, then 2020 EFL League One Player of the Year, was brought for around £10m. You would have to say he is worth a fair bit more than that in today’s market. Of course, there is a real importance to such financial success off the field.

Former Bee Saïd Benrahma's first-half penalty had given the visitors the lead against the table-toppers, only for Mikel Arteta's men to come roaring back after the interval with goals from Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nektiah. The result left West Ham 16th in the table with 14 points from 16 games - six points and six places below Friday's opponents. Thomas Frank's side arrive in east London with a record of four wins, four defeats and eight draws, with their first game back ending all-square at 2-2 against Tottenham Hotspur, also on Boxing Day. A minute's applause will be held before kick-off in tribute to the late, great Brazil forward Pelé, who passed away on Thursday, aged 82.

If there was any doubting the Bees’ forward’s quality, then a trip to the Etihad Stadium in the final match before the 2022 FIFA World Cup finals confirmed what most already knew. In a 2-1 win at Manchester City, Toney was at his clinical best, striking a brace in a deserved win over the champions. It was brave showing from the striker, although that word could largely be applied to Brentford’s approach since promotion to the top-tier in 2021. Under Thomas Frank, Brentford have been aggressive. They press with relentless intensity, while their fluidity with a back-three (3-5-2) – or now more commonly a back-four (4-3-3) – allows players the cover and confidence to commit to such a forward-thinking press.

The club followed promotion under Mark Warburton in 2013 with seven Championship campaigns, where the Bees never finished lower than eleventh. And, having narrowly missed out in the previous season via a Play-off final defeat by Fulham in 2020, Brentford were promoted to the top flight a year later. A Wembley win over Swansea City fired them to the Premier League for the first time and they have hardly looked back since. Last season, a 13th-placed finish – with 13 wins – saw Brentford impress many in their debut Premier League campaign. And halfway through the 2022/23 season, it has been more of the same, as the Bees sat tenth ahead of the mid-season break for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Profits from players are key for clubs such as Brentford to retain a competitive squad that can hold its own in the top-flight. And since their arrival in the Premier League, the Bees, under Thomas Frank, have shown they can compete too. But West Ham United know this well. Last season, the Bees won the first two Premier League meetings between the sides – 2-1 in east London and 2-0 at their new Community Stadium. It is a run David Moyes and company will seek to end at London Stadium on Friday. Talking Tactics... When looking at how to deal with Brentford there is no doubt that opposition clubs focus on how to stop Ivan Toney.
