Crystal Palace vs Brentford team news

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace put in a decent effort at Stamford Bridge last time out but still ended up coming away with nothing to show for their efforts. Chelsea took the lead early on but Michael Olise equalised in first-half stoppage-time. The second forty-five proved to be tight and tense throughout but Chelsea snatched the win with an eighty-ninth minute penalty.

Cheick Doucoure, Jesurun Rak-Sakyi, Joel Ward, Sam Johnstone, Rob Holding and Odsonne Edouard could all miss the Brentford game due to injury.

Predicted Lineup: Henderson (GK), Clyne, Andersen, Guéhi, Mitchell, Richards, Lerma, Eze, Olise, Ayew & Mateta

Brentford

Brentford fans will be expecting a much-improved performance from their side following the Bee's 4-1 loss at home to Wolves on Wednesday night. Yoane Wissa's goal proved only to be a consolation as visiting Wolves put on a great display which embarred the home side.

Rico Henry, Bryan Mbeumo, Aaron Hickey, Kevin Schade, Kristoffer Ajer and Joshua Dasilva are all injury concerns for the visitors this weekend, while Ben Mee and Ivan Toney are suspended. Frank Onyeka is available after serving a one-match suspension.

Predicted Lineup: Flekken (GK), Roerslev, Pinnock, Collins, Nørgaard, Wissa, Janelt, Damsgaard, Ghoddos, Maupay & Lewis-Potter

Player to Watch: Yoane Wissa

With both Crystal Palace and Brentford having their top scorers out with injury, we're looking to Yoane Wissa as one of the likely goalscorers this weekend.

Wissa has netted four times in the Premier League this season, making him Brentford's second-highest scorer behind Bryan Mbeumo. If anyone is going to score for the Bees this weekend, our money would be on Wissa who scored in the 4-1 defeat to Wolves in midweek.
