Can Brentford extend good records of new Premier League clubs?

Brentford will become the 50th club to compete in the English Premier League since its inception in 1992-93 when the new season kicks off in August. 

The Bees won promotion via the Championship playoffs, beating Bournemouth 3-2 on aggregate. 

The newcomers can be optimistic about making an impact in their debut season in the competition if past records are anything to go by. 

Of the 27 clubs who have been promoted to the competition since its inaugural season, 55 percent stayed up in their debut campaign.

Which are the highest finishes by new PL Clubs?

  • Newcastle - 1993/94 - 3rd
  • Reading - 2006/07 - 8th
  • Wigan - 2005/06 - 10th
