Brentford have continued their same flying form from last season, scoring five goals in their opening two games and picking up four points in the process.

Starting off with a 2-2 draw against Tottenham on opening day, Brentford made the short trip to Craven Cottage to face Fulham, who they comfortably dispatched 3-0. 

Crystal Palace pose a threatening opponent, though. The Eagles beat Sheffield United in their first game of the season before suffering a narrow 1-0 defeat at home to Arsenal on Monday night, and Roy Hodgson's side will be confident of nicking something in west London this time around. 

Kick-off is at 3pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.

Brentford's Ben Mee has been struggling with a minor problem and is still out for this game. Ivan Toney is suspended until January 2024.

Brentford XI: Flekken; Hickey, Collins, Pinnock, Henry; Jensen, Norgaard, Janelt; Mbeumo, Wissa, Schade.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:


ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
