Two sides that have had contrasting starts to their Premier League campaigns meet this weekend as Brentford face Bournemouth.
Brentford currently sit 9rd in the Premier League with one win and two draws from their opening three games of the season.
The Bees kicked off their campaign with a 2-2 draw against Tottenham before thumping Fulham 3-0 away from home, while their most recent game saw them held to a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace last weekend.
It's been a typically strong start to the season for Brentford who continue to excel under Thomas Frank, and they'll likely feel as though the number of points they have on the board does not fully reflect the calibre of their performances.
Brentford were arguably the better team in their opener against Spurs and missed a number of chances while they'll also feel they should have beaten Crystal Palace at the weekend, with the away side's equaliser coming in fortuitous fashion.
Brentford were leading thanks to a fine strike from Kevin Schade before Joachim Anderson squeezed the ball under Brentford keeper Mark Flekken in a fortunately opportunistic manner.
It wasn't the result Brentford wanted but it was still a performance they can take plenty of positives from as they've already demonstrated they're going to be a strong outfit this season.
Given they'll feel like that was two points dropped they'll be looking to make up for that here; they expect to win most games they play on home soil and this one will be no different.
Bournemouth currently sit 16th in the Premier League with one draw and two losses from their first two games of the season.
The Cherries began the season with a 1-1 draw at home to West Ham United before falling to successive defeats at the hands of Liverpool, 3-1, and Tottenham Hotspur, 0-2.
It's not been an easy start to the season for Bournemouth in terms of fixture difficulty but their performances also have not quite been at the level that fans would have hoped so far so there's probably some trepidation coming into this game.
The Cherries are under a new manager in Andoni Iraola and made a number of new signings in the summer so naturally it is going to take time for things to gel.
A much-changed Bournemouth did at least chalk their first win of the season on the board on Tuesday night as they beat Swansea City 3-2 away from home in the EFL Cup courtesy of goals from David Brooks, Hamad Traorè and Ryan Christie - the latter of which was an injury-time winner.
This game is not much easier for Bournemouth than either of their last two so any result here would be a good one. It's by no means unwinnable for The Cherries but don't expect the away side to take three points.
For our Brentford vs. Bournemouth prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
