The English Premier League season is about to restart this weekend with all the major players looking to give their team winning starts. In the opening round of the Premier League, Brentford will travel to the King Power Stadium where they will face Leicester City. 

Leicester City have had a solid preseason where they defeated the likes of Derby, Preston and Hull City. The wins will give the team confidence as they head into the main season. Leicester City are a strong team and they look well balanced throughout the pitch with quality players like Tielemans, Vardy, Evans and Pereira all playing for the Foxes. With the advantage of the match taking place at home, Leicester City will be hoping to start their season with a win. 

Looking at their opponent, Brentford will also be hoping to begin their campaign with a victory. Brentford also had a solid preseason as they defeated Brighton and Real Betis in their most recent pre-season friendlies. When comparing the team with Leicester City, Brentford lack the quality in terms of players. That being said, Brentford had a solid season last year and the team will be hoping that they can build from that this season. This is still expected to be a tough match for Brentford as the King Power Stadium is a tough place to visit. 

Leicester City and Brentford played each other twice last season in the Premier League and once in the FA Cup. All 3 matches were won by Leicester City with the King Power Stadium hosted fixture ending in a 2-1 win for the Foxes. All 3 fixtures resulted in comfortable wins for Leicester City.
