Tip Reasoning

  • Crystal Palace have lost three of their last four home Premier League games.
  • Brentford have won seven of their last eight games in all competitions.
  • Crystal Palace have failed to score in three of their last five league defeats.

Vieira reign begins in disappointment

Patrick Vieira endured a difficult start to his life as a Premier League manager as his Crystal Palace side were dominated at Stamford Bridge. The result was a 3-0 defeat for the Eagles and while a home clash against Brentford is unlikely to be quite so one-sided, The Bees could certainly cause some trouble on Saturday.

Palace barely had a kick of the ball in the first half at Stamford Bridge and while they did improve after the break they still managed just one shot on target all game. They looked very much like a team in transition right now and that could be their undoing on Saturday.

Bees enter the big time with a bang

Brentford, by contrast, will be in incredibly high spirits after their curtain-raiser against Arsenal last Friday. The Bees clinched a deserved 2-0 win over Arsenal in their first ever Premier League match and the early signs suggest they have all the capability to compete in the top flight.

Of course, it’s still very early in the season but everything about their performance at the Brentford Community Stadium looked assured, from their solidity at the back without the ball to their transition and attacking play.

Brentford set for more success

Thomas Frank’s side have won seven of their last eight matches in all competitions and the confidence they gained from that win over Arsenal cannot be underestimated.

Crystal Palace, on the other hand, have lost seven of their last nine in the Premier League and didn’t look promising at all under new management. I wouldn’t expect another mauling but backing the Brentford win looks good value on Saturday.

Palace have failed to score in three of their last five league defeats and with Brentford keeping a clean sheet against Arsenal a narrow 1-0 correct score prediction also appeals.

Crystal Palace predicted lineup: Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; McArthur, Riedewald, Gallagher; Ayew, Benteke, Zaha

Brentford predicted lineup: Raya; Jansson, Ajer, Pinnock; Canos, Onyeka, Norgaard, Janelt, Henry; Toney, Mbuemo

  • Crystal Palace have failed to keep a clean sheet in ten of their last 12 Premier League games
