View: Keane Lewis-Potter must start every Premier League game for Brentford
Keane Lewis-Potter has started just two Premier League games for Brentford since his move from Hull City in the summer.
Thomas Frank took his time to introduce the 21-year-old to the fray, but in these last two games he’s proven why there was so much hype surrounding his signature.
He killed in the Championship, but the Premier League was undoubtedly going to be a different kettle of fish.
The Englishman plays in all three positions behind the striker and his versatility gives Frank plenty of options.
The Danish manager himself moves from a back three and back four time and again and in both systems, there is place for Lewis-Potter.
He’s played from the start against Crystal Palace and Leeds United and in both games he’s shown sparks of his brilliance despite not finding the back of the net.

He has an assist to his name but that was when he came off the bench against Everton.
However, Frank waxed lyrical over him and his comments indicate that he’s set to play him more regularly in the coming weeks.
Via Hull Live, he said, “I think Keane Lewis-Potter has done well. I think he’s a very exciting young player. It was a top action for the first goal (against Colchester), with his movement and his finish.
“Definitely, it’s his second Premier League start and he’s 21 years old.
“There’s a lot of things to learn, working hard and finding the right positions. I think he still got into some very good situations and areas and he’ll only learn and get better.”
Hopefully, he ends the season with 15 G+A in the Premier League as he undoubtedly has the capability to be a game changer for the Bees along with Ivan Toney.
In other Brentford news, the club should be pleased about Aaron Hickey’s start to life at the club.
