The Brentford Community Stadium is set to be rocking as Brentford entertain Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

The Bees' losing run was extended in midweek when they were defeated 2-0 by league leaders Man City.

The defeat leaves Thomas Frank's side teetering perilously close to the relegation zone in the Premier League, with Leeds having moved onto the same points tally after their 3-3 draw at Aston Villa.

Here's how the Bees could line up this weekend.


Brentford predicted lineup vs Crystal Palace - Premier League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

David Raya (GK) - Poor pass into defence to allow City to double their advantage in midweek, but Brentford are considerably more solid with the Spaniard back in the fold.

Kristoffer Ajer (CB) - Injury has derailed the Norwegian's debut campaign in the Premier League.

Pontus Jansson (CB) - A big personality in the Brentford dressing room and his experience will be invaluable as they aim to stave off relegation.

Ethan Pinnock (CB) - Possesses a cultured left foot and performs impressively in ground duels.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Mads Roerslev (RWB) - Has proven an able deputy to Canos on the right hand side, although he guilty of a late challenge on Sterling to concede a penalty against Man City in midweek.

Mathias Jensen (CM) - Boasts a great engine in midfield and can hold his own physically.

Christian Norgaard (CM) - A huge threat from dead ball situations and is always dangerous with the ball at his feet from range.

Frank Onyeka (CM) - The summer signing from FC Midtjylland hasn't quite hit the ground running in England.

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

3. Forwards

Bryan Mbeumo (ST) - Brentford have missed the Frenchman's attacking qualities while he was absent with Covid-19.

Sergi Canos (ST) - The Spaniard has been forced to fill in attack in the absence of either Toney or Mbeumo on multiple occasions this season.
