Two of the statistically better defences of the 2021/22 Premier League season so far meet at Molineux this lunchtime.
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Brentford gets underway at 12:30 BST.
Neither of these sides has conceded more than one goal in a single match in this embryonic campaign, with the Bees only an 89th-minute Brighton strike away from registering their third clean sheet of the season in Gameweek 4.
Both defences are among the top five clubs for fewest ‘big chances’ conceded, too.
Wolves’ defensive fortitude and favourable fixture run has no doubt contributed to the raft of recent transfers used on Marcal (£4.6m), Fantasy Premier League’s most-bought defender of Gameweek 5 – although last weekend’s two attacking returns were obviously the main catalyst for that.
Bruno Lage’s side are generally underrepresented in FPL, however, with Conor Coady (£4.5m) their most-owned asset at 7.0%.
Ivan Toney (£6.3m) remains Brentford’s most popular Fantasy asset at 13.7% but he has lost around one million owners since the beginning of the campaign, with only a solitary attacking return against Aston Villa to show for his endeavours so far.
As for the team news, it’s very uneventful: both sides are unchanged.
