Brentford, of course, are back at the stage where it all went wrong for them last season as they were beaten by Fulham in the play-off final. Fulham have since returned to the Championship, but will Thomas Frank’s side be able to earn promotion this time around?

This game, which is set to be played in front of a crowd of 12,000, could be worth a staggering £178million to the side that prevails. 

Swansea were in the Premier League as recently as the 2017-18 season, but Brentford haven’t been in the top flight since 1948. Which one of them will come out on top today?
