Good afternoon and welcome to live coverage of Thomas Frank’s final press conference of 2021 ahead of Brentford’s first game of 2022, as they welcome Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa to Brentford Community Stadium.
The Bees come into the game, having narrowly been defeated by Manchester City on Wednesday night. Despite the 0-1 loss, there would have been plenty for Frank to take away from.
On the other hand, Villa arrive in London having had a full week of training after seeing their game at Leeds postponed due to COVID cases. There was nothing to separate the two sides when they drew 1-1 at Villa Park in August.
Our Brentford reporter Uzzi Majid will bring the key updates ahead of Sunday’s game.
