Brentford host Everton in the late kick-off in the Premier League on Saturday live on Sky Sports. The Bees are looking to bounce back from their narrow 1-0 defeat at Newcastle United last time out and secure their second win of the season against the struggling Toffees.

There is a particular market in this top-flight clash which we feel offers great value and as such have selected as our bet of the day.

Football Bet of the Day – Saturday

  • Bryan Mbeumo to score 2+ goals – 11/1

Brentford suffered their first defeat of the season last time out as they were beaten by a solitary goal at Newcastle, a controversial penalty which manager Thomas Frank was still aggrieved by as he appeared on Monday Night Football.

The Danish coach will look for an immediate response from his players as they return to the Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday evening. He will see this as a great opportunity t0 pick up their second win of the campaign as Everton have been underwhelming to say the least, mustering just one point so far.

One player who will be relishing this opportunity to play against a side low on confidence is sidekick turned main man Bryan Mbeumo. In the absence of Ivan Toney, the Cameroon international has stepped up to the plate for his side, scoring four goals in the league.

He and Yoane Wissa have been leading the line brilliantly for Frank and most questions surrounding how they would cope without Toney have been dashed. Most of the positive play that Brentford have implemented this term has involved Mbeumo, and after failing to get on the scoresheet last time out he will be hungry to get back among the goals against Sean Dyche’s team.

Everton are defensively frail, have a severe lack of organisation and they are also in desperate need of some quality. Already it appears as though they are getting roped into another relegation battle, and one which will be even tougher for them to get through unscathed.

As they search for their first win of the season it doesn’t feel like they are going to get it at Brentford and that they are likely going to be in for another miserable afternoon. This misery could be inflicted by Mbeumo, who could be in for a field day against Everton’s defenders.
