Is Brentford vs Leeds on TV? Channel, live stream and team news

Brentford host Jesse Marsch’s Leeds side this afternoon as both teams look to avoid a second defeat of the season.

After escaping relegation last term by only three points, Leeds were one of the favourites to go down this year, but it has been a strong start to the new campaign for the Whites. 

Heading into round 6 of the Premier League, they sit in 7th place after amassing 8 points from their first 5 games, with their only loss of coming against Brighton.

Leeds’ opening to the campaign has also featured a 3-0 thrashing of 2 time Champion League winners Chelsea, a result which left the Elland Road crowd buzzing.

Brentford have had a similarly impressive start to the campaign, having also only lost once.

The Bees pulled off an equally surprising giant killing themselves, beating Manchester United 4-0 in the Premier League’s second gameweek.

Draws against Leicester, Palace and Everton leave Thomas Frank’s side in 11th place heading into this afternoon’s clash.

Brentford vs Leeds will take place at the Gtech Community Stadium and will kick off this afternoon at 3pm BST.

Unfortunately for UK viewers, this game will not be televised due to the 3pm fixture broadcast blackout.

However, fans will be able to find highlights of the game on the Sky Sports Premier League YouTube Channel, or on Match of the Day at 22:30 tonight on BBC 1.

Brentford still have a small contingent of players unavailable due to injury, including Krisoffer Ajer, Ethan Pinnock, Sergi Canos and Pontus Jansson.

Thomas Frank may look to give his new signings Edson Pruti and Charlie Farr their debuts.

Similarly, the Peacocks are also missing a number of crucial squad members.

Jesse Marsch was without Stuart Dallas, Luke Ayling, Junior Firpo, Liam Cooper and Rodrigo in their last encounter, and a number of them are set to miss this afternoon's clash too.
