Brentford corner. Here we go?

90' + 5 

Daka loves shooting; Raya holds on this time.

90' + 4 

Very scrappy game at the moment. Daka strikes and wins a corner for Leicester. Not what Brentford need.

GOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLL!!! Leicester are ahead again. Schmeichel releases Iheanacho, and eventually Daka breaks through. He squares for Maddison to roll the ball home.

71' 

The referee has blown for a foul, but Pontus Jansson just missed from a corner. Brentford are still well on top here, invigorated by their leveller.

Siumare forces Raya into a decent save after driving through the middle and shooting from distance. This is better from Leicester.

54' 

Raya seemed to get away with one there. Daka almost dispossessed him, but he looked cool as he cleared.

52' 

Amartey has been caught in the face accidentally by Toney. Brentford still looking strong here, though.

47' 

Toney has a tame header saved by Schmeichel. The ball is getting turned over a lot here.

Players are back out here, and there is an interesting change for Leicester coming up.

45' 

HALF TIME! Tielemans' wonder goal the difference but Brentford have been the better side. 0-1 at the break.

45' 

Brentford force a sixth corner. Toney stood up well by Evans.

43' 

We are closing in on half time and the game has settled but Leicester keep making errors in possession.

38' 

Strange game, this. Brentford started with intensity before Leicester scored, then the hosts regained control without much threat before Toney's header. Leicester have offered nothing since the goal, but lead.

35' 

CHANCE! Schmeichel does well to push Toney's header over for a corner, which leads to a shot wide by Henry.

Jorgensen booked for a foul on Maddison.

29' 

We're back and Evans clears from Mbuemo after he was fed by Toney. He's been a real threat.

26' 

Pinnock wins the first header from a Brentford corner. Onyeka then volleys goalwards but it is blocked. Pinnock is down after a tough landing/

23' 

Mbuemo almost gets to Canos' pass ahead of Schmeichel. If he gets there, it is 1-1.

20' 

Mbuemo shoots early from distance to catch Schmeichel out. Easy saved, but Brentford's rhythm hasn't been stopped after going behind. Good sign.

17' 

The game is stretched. Onyeka does really well to find Mbuemo at one end, but Tielemans steals in before Toney can collect the ball. Eventually, Maddison shoots and misses.

15' 

After last week's pearler against Manchester United, he's done it again. First time, from distance, rifled past Raya.

Maddison win a free kick off Norgaard. Can Leicester get a foothold here?

9' 

CLOSE! Mbuemo shoots wide after brilliant link up with Toney. Brentford look sucgh a threat right now, he should hit the target.

7' 

To me, that looked close. Toney looked onside, but Henry wasn't in the build up before he crossed.

6'

GOOOOAAALLL... no. Toney is offside. VAR checking and not given.

5' 

Good start by Brentford here. Jensen's cross just evades Toney.

4' 

Jansson heads over, looks like he was hit in the face inadvertently by Schmeichel.

3' 

Norgaard hooks the ball towards goal, denied by Schmeichel. Corner cleared, another to come.

Brentford are out warming up!

13:29 

Brendan Rodgers was the first manager to rule himself out of the running for the now vacant job at Newcastle. He is focussed on building on the work he started at Leicester, which includes an FA Cup triumph.

13:24 

Leicester have not hit the ground running this season, but victories over Manchester United in the Premier League last weekend and Spartak Moscow in the Europa League have given them a new lease of life. Victory here will push them into the top half and just a point off fourth, whereas Brentford could climb into the European spots with a win.

13:20 

Brentford have had a superb start to the season since promotion, with a home win over Arsenal and a draw with Liverpool. Boss Thomas Frank was left frustrated by defeat to Chelsea last week, claiming of the three games,m that was the one with the best performance. They'll be hungry for victory here.

13:15 

Leicester's line up, with four-goal hero from midweek, Patson Daka, on the bench.

13:13 

TEAM NEWS!

Brentford are unchanged from the side that narrowly lost to Chelsea last weekend.
