the Bees were perhaps ortunate to get a point against Newcastle last time out but can uild on that back at home, here they have beaten Arsenal and held Liverpool to a -3 draw this season.

the Bees find themseves without a win in five after last weekend's thrilling 3-3 draw at t. James' Park and a 2-1 loss to truggling Norwich in their most recent home outing was itterly disappointing. However, they dominated the shots stats 19 to nine against the Canaries and with more composure in front of goal the roles may have been reversed.

Thomas Frank's side have not changed their attractive style of football and are fancied to bounce back from a series of poor results with a win as the pressure mounts on Benitez and his wounded squad.

While Everton, who managed only one shot on target at the Etihad last Sunday, look short on attacking talent at present, Brentford can call upon the services of Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbeumo, who should get plenty of goalscoring chances against a defence who have conceded ten goals in four games.
