Since Christmas, Brentford have arguably been the best team in the Premier League. Wins this season over the likes of Liverpool and both Manchester clubs have certainly bucked the idea of a second-season syndrome hitting the Bees, with Ivan Toney soaring to new heights leading the line for the west Londoners. 

Crystal Palace, on the other hand, are definitely struggling in the sequel to Patrick Vieira's stunning debut campaign. Wilf Zaha has chipped in with six Premier League goals this term – no one else has over half of that. The Eagles are plugging away and seem confident of avoiding the drop zone… but they must have more to give that this?

More than just a London derby, this could be a turning point in Palace's season, should they beat one of the Prem's form sides. Brentford won't make it easy, mind – and have been one of the best teams to watch in the league all season. 

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

Team news

Thomas Frank has named the following Brentford starting 11: (4-3-3) David Raya; Aaron Hickey, Ethan Pinnock, Ben Mee, Rico Henry; Mathias Jensen, Christian Norgaard (captain), Josh Dasilva; Bryan Mbeumo, Ivan Toney, Yoane Wissa

Patrick Vieira has selected the following Crystal Palace starting 11: (4-4-2) Vicente Guaita; Nathaniel Clyne, Joachim Andersen, Marc Guehi (captain), Tryick Mitchell; Michael Olise, Cheick Doucoure, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Jeffrey Schlupp; Jordan Ayew, Jean-Philippe Mateta 


Brentford are the in-form team of the division, picking up three wins and two draws from their last five. Only Newcastle United are unbeaten in the same stretch and they've drawn four of five. If the Bees win their games in hand, they could find themselves two points behind Tottenham Hotspur in fifth, giving themselves a remarkable shot at European football next term. 

Things at Selhurst Park couldn't be more different. Crystal Palace haven't won a Premier League match since before the World Cup and though the Eagles have scraped impressive draws against arch-rivals Brighton and high-fliers Newcastle and Manchester United of late, scoring goals is becoming a serious worry. On 25 points at current, Vieira will be targeting a minimum of five more wins from the final 16 fixtures in order to keep the side up. 


Paul Tierney will be the referee for Brentford vs Crystal Palace.


Brentford vs Crystal Palace will be played at the 17,250-thousand-seater Gtech Community Stadium in London.

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 (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
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!
