David Raya (GK) - Brentford sorely missed the Spaniard during his injury absence.

Kristoffer Ajer (CB) - Injury has disrupted the Norwegian's debut campaign in the Premier League and he will be keen to gain momentum.

Pontus Jansson (CB) - The Swede's experience will be invaluable for the Bees as they aim to stave off relegation.

Ethan Pinnock (CB) - Very easy on the eye with his ability to drive into midfield with the ball.


2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Sergi Canos (RWB) - Positionally versatile and a fan favourite among the Brentford faithful.

Mathias Jensen (CM) - Boasts a great engine in midfield and very capable with the ball at his feet.

Christian Norgaard (CM) - Netted when Arsenal visited the Brentford Community Stadium back in August.

Vitaly Janelt (CM) - Faces stiff competition at the heart of the midfield, although he's performed impressively this campaign.

Rico Henry (LWB) - An aggressive wing-back whose deliveries from wide areas are usually pinpoint.


3. Forwards
