In the 2021/22 Premier League season, Brentford was one of the surprise packages, where they eased to safety under the guidance of colorful Danish manager Thomas Frank at their new home in the Brentford Community Stadium as one of the surprise packages.
After securing promotion via the playoffs, the Bees were able to move comfortably clear of the relegation zone with a fantastic run of results in March and April, winning five out of seven and only losing one, in order to move comfortably away from the relegation zone.
Signing Christian Eriksen on a short-term contract at the end of January proved a masterstroke by Frank. The playmaker proved why he was regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world before making his cautious return from a cardiac arrest during Euro 2020.
Can Brentford avoid ‘second-season syndrome? When is Frank’s side back in cup action? Here’s what you need to know.

FA Cup, and Carabao Cup participation for Brentford
After losing 4-1 to Everton in the FA Cup fourth round in 2022/23, Brentford could have been forgiven for prioritizing league safety over cup runs. In January, they will be returning to this competition for the second time.
Their Carabao Cup campaign was ended by a 2-0 defeat at home to Chelsea in the quarterfinals in 2021/22, but they avenged that setback by winning 4-1 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League. In November, Brentford will once again be competing in the Carabao Cup.

Brentford Premier League projection & odds
With the exception of the three teams promoted from the Championship in 2021-22, Brentford has not invested heavily and, as a consequence, is generally viewed as likely candidates for relegation from the top flight by the bookies.
There is a lot riding on whether the inspirational Eriksen, who has been directly involved in five Premier League goals in the last nine games of the season, signs new terms with the club, or if he is lured by one of the clubs at the top of the table. As a result of Brentford’s recent form, it appears they will at least be able to aim for a season looking upwards rather than looking backward.
