Brentford boss Frank assures Everton over Leeds plans

Brentford boss Thomas Frank has assured Everton they will try to beat Leeds United in their final game of the season this weekend.

After being beaten by the Bees on Sunday at Goodison Park, the Blues could head into their final game of the season away to Arsenal needing a result to preserve their Premier League status if they fall to another defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace on Thursday night.

As things stand the Blues are two points clear of the drop zone, and one point ahead of Leeds, although they do have a game in hand on Jesse Marsch's side. And speaking following his side's win at Goodison, Frank promised the Blues that his side will not be rolling over for the Elland Road club this Sunday.

He said: “No, I think we will put the B Team out! We will put our very best team out there - it's so important to understand we need to do our very best to win.

“It is nothing about Everton, Burnley or Leeds and I know in my press conference I will get a lot of questions between the story about me and 'so-called' Leeds fans and a video, but there is no story there from my perspective.

“Everyone will do our best to try and win on Sunday, and if Brentford can finish top 10, that's remarkable. As far as I know, there is a fair quid to gain if you finish higher, for the Club."
