The crucial stat that suggests Brentford will survive their first Premier League season

Brentford rack up comfortable win over Wolves

First half goals from Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbeumo ensured that Brentford continued their strong start to their maiden Premier League campaign, having now taken 8 points from their opening 5 league games.

They could well have scored more too, with Toney having two further goals ruled out (correctly) for offside and handball respectively. A red card on the hour mark to Baptiste made the encounter more nervy than it should have been, but despite bright sparks from Adama Traore, Wolves flattered to deceive.

The result leaves Brentford in eighth place ahead of the remainder of the weekend’s fixtures, while Wolves languish in 14th place, having taken 3 points from their opening five games.

The stat that suggests that Brentford will survive this season

After the game, a stat emerged that suggests that Brentford fans should be confident of remaining in the division this season at least.

As per Opta, Brentford are the fourteenth newly-promoted side to have won 8 or more points from their opening 5 Premier League fixtures. All of the previous 13 sides to do so have avoided relegation that season.

This means that Brentford fans can continue to enjoy their stay in the Premier League, knowing that historically they are likely to stay up if they continue to perform as they have for their opening five games.
