Our prediction: Brentford v Leicester

It's difficult to tell which side with feel the absence of Toney and Vardy more. They're both outstanding, natural goalscorers and neither side will be pleased to go into this one without them.

Leicester are likely to go fairly strong, with James Maddison and Harvey Barnes in top form and hoping to add to their hot streaks.

Expect an entertaining affair between two sides unafraid to push forward. Both sides will create chances, but clinical finishing will determine the winner here.

Our prediction: Brentford 1-2 Leicester (15/2 at bet365)
