After Eriksen's departure, Brentford look for solutions

After failing in a bid to sign Christian Eriksen, they are on the verge of completing their fifth major signing of the summer after agreeing a deal with Sampdoria to sign Danish winger Mikkel Damsgaard for around €15 million (£12.6 million).

The Bees have already signed former Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha on a free, highly-rated Hull City striker Keane Lewis-Potter for £20 million, Scottish defender Aaron Hickey from Bologna for £17 million and experienced former Burnley defender Ben Mee on a free.

Brendan Rodgers, Leicester DT, said

"We've had a great pre-season and the only disappointment is that we had a couple of injuries in our last pre-season game. We came into today in good condition and we're looking forward to playing."

On not having signed any new players so far this summer: "My focus is purely on the players I have. If we can't [bring in new players] my concentration falls on the players that are here. We are in a good place and our spirit is very strong."

On starting James Maddison and Wesley Fofana, who have been linked with the possibility of leaving: "They are 100 percent ready. It's always a difficult time before the transfer window closes and there is always gossip and speculation. Both players are very important to us".

Brentford key player: Ivan Toney

Brentford’s big man is the focal point and rightfully the subject of much speculated interest during this summer. Toney can do it all, and did do it all last season, from attack to defence.

Obviously, his goals were pivotal last campaign and will be again this, with his 12 strikes leading The Bees to safety.

Either foot, in the air and from the spot, Toney gets his goals any way he can.

His five assists also showed his playmaking ability has he made his second consecutive jump up the divisions, just two-and-a-half years ago he was turning out for League One Peterborough United.

But he can also impact the game on the defensive end. Countless times, Toney will win the first ball in his own box when defending a corner with his commanding presence and unmatched desire.

9:04 PM2 months ago

Leicester City key player: James Maddison

He is Leicester’s orchestrater in the midfield, with his ability to pick out his team mates wherever they are on the pitch. The former Norwich City man can get out of tight situations, which will help him against Brentford’s high press on Sunday.
He will not be leading the press from the front but he is crucial when possession is regained – his great range of passing helps turn defence into attack instantaneously.
And from set pieces, Maddison can cause danger, whether it be scoring from the dead ball himself or finding teammates, which is something Leicester need to be better at this season.
He makes The Foxes tick, and an in-form James Maddison like the one from the end of last season will be important not just this weekend but all year long.

Brentford wants to take a leap in quality

Although Brentford's first campaign in the Premier League was satisfactory, the objective for this second season is not only to guarantee permanence, but also to seek a better position in the championship.

Those directed by Thomas Frank no longer have Christian Eriksen, who did not renew his contract. with the bees and left to Manchester United, however, it keeps several of its pillars such as Ivan Toney, David Raya and Patrick Mbeumo.

Leicester City keeps its roster, but says goodbye to an idol

At Leicester, there were few novelties, the most special being the departure of multi-champion Kasper Schmeichel. From that championship-winning squad, Jamie Vardy is a small testimony of what was a golden season under Claudio Ranieri. 

DT Brendan Rodgers will count on other experienced players such as Madison, Tielemans, Evans, however, there could be some departures before the transfer deadline.
