Brentford will hope to make it two wins on the trot against their relegation rivals when they host Burnley on Saturday.

Thomas Frank's men saw off Norwich last time out to give themselves some breathing room in the race to avoid the drop, but that game did take its toll on the squad as a handful of players left with knocks.

Here's how the boss could set up here.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

David Raya (GK) - Raya has managed just one clean sheet since returning from his knee injury and will hope to double that tally here.

Kristoffer Ajer (RB) - Picked up a knock against Norwich but is expected to be ready to go and will likely keep his unorthodox right-back role.

Pontus Jansson (CB) - The club captain has missed just eight minutes of Premier League action this season.

Ethan Pinnock (CB) - Pinnock's red-hot start to the season has slowed but he remains a dependable option for Frank.

Rico Henry (LB) - Usually more of a wing-back, Henry has been tasked with sitting a bit deeper in recent weeks.

2. Midfielders

Vitaly Janelt (DM) - The versatile Janelt is a near-permanent fixture of Frank's side.

Frank Onyeka (DM) - Christian Norgaard picked up a knock against Norwich, meaning Onyeka may return to the starting lineup in his place.

Bryan Mbeumo (RM) - Made a rare appearance on the right wing last time out and could well stay there in search of another victory.

Christian Eriksen (AM) - He played 90 minutes against Norwich and, if doctors are satisfied, should do the same again.

Sergi Canos (LW) - The switch from right wing-back to left winger was a bit of a surprise but Canos did well enough to fend off competition from Yoane Wissa.

3. Forward
